This is not the first time energy-saving bulbs have been criticized – fluorescent bulbs emit dangerous UV light.
Eco-friendly LED lights may damage your eyes, according to new research.A study has discovered that exposure to LED lights can cause irreparable harm to the retina of the human eye.
How do you protect your eyes from LED lights?
Use Computer glasses or Anti-reflective lenses. Computer glasses with yellow-tinted lenses that block blue light can help ease computer digital eye strain by increasing contrast. Anti-reflective lenses reduce glare and increase contrast and also block blue light from the sun and digital devices.
Are LED lights safe for human eyes?
The eye is a complex organ that naturally tries its best to compensate for varying lighting conditions, and LED grow light spectra may not always appear “natural” to humans. Overall, in terms of photobiological safety, LED grow lights have similar characteristics to those of any other lighting technology.
Which light is best for eyes?
There are several other light bulbs that are a better choice for your eye health, including traditional incandescent bulbs, LED bulbs, and halogen bulbs. Warm white fluorescent CFLs can be a good replacement, but do know that they still emit a small amount of UV rays.
Are LED lights better for your eyes than fluorescent?
One popular myth is that LED bulbs produce only “blue” light. Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs): CFL bulbs produce fewer UV rays and are more energy efficient than bright white incandescent and fluorescent tube bulbs. They are less energy efficient than LED bulbs, but they usually cost less up front.
