Eyelids are not completely opaque. Light penetrates. Close your eyes in a lighted environment and then put your hand over them and you'll see the difference. I have sleep problems and have done some research. For best sleep, we need a completely light-free environment.

I ended up pulling the lights apart and breaking one of the LEDS and that put both of them on that light out it's a lot nicer now.

I covered a standby light on an led television with a little black rubber pad made for sticking to the underside of small appliances or other items to prevent scratching countertops. Worked well.

Cutting wires, black tap........ drink so cold ones by the fire and you'll sleep fine lol. I like my room dark but a few lights don't bother me. But the kids all want night lights which drives me nuts knowing my battery is draining lol

Here is the fix. Remove the light, take out the screws that hold the inside together...the light comes apart very easily. When you have it open, take a small pair of diagonal wire cutters and snip just one of the blue LEDS out. As soon as you do, the other blue LED goes dark as well. The great result...the white light still operates normally with the switch....and no more blue alien landing lights causing insomnia.

I did this with all 3 dome lights in the bedroom of my Spartan fifth wheel today.

By the way...for all the naysayers...blue light is the worst for causing insomnia for many people.

Here is an example article:

It's hard to believe someone would loose sleep from a light they could put a pc of duct tape over or hang something in front of it.
