Take care of your health

Does led lighting affect your eyes and vision?

LED lighting is becoming increasingly popular and with good reason – it is energy efficient, environmentally friendly and relatively fail-safe. LED bulbs and lamps also have a much longer lifespan compared to their traditional counterparts. Nevertheless, despite its many advantages, LED technology is often considered potentially harmful to health, especially to the eyes.

One of the most important advantages is energy saving: LEDs are much more energy efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs. They use up to 75-80% less electricity, which translates into lower electricity bills. Another advantage is a much longer service life. Leds can last up to 25 times longer than a normal incandescent bulb, which means that they do not need to be replaced as often. Another argument is that they are much more resistant to mechanical damage. Is there really a negative impact on vision, as sceptics of this solution claim?

Some opponents of LED lighting maintain that lights based on this technology generate light with a blue tint, which can contribute to potential damage to the retina. This radiation is part of both natural and artificial light. However, the problem with blue light is not in the LED lighting sources, but in their quality of manufacture. If these sources comply with current standards, they are completely safe for the eyes. It is worth noting that inexpensive and low-quality LED lamps and bulbs can lead to a feeling of eye fatigue. Why does this happen? In simple terms, to produce white light, the LED combines blue light with the yellow light of the luminophore. If the efficiency of the latter is low, the blue colour dominates, which can cause visual problems. At our company, our priority is to ensure the safety of our customers, which is why all LED bulbs and lamps we offer go through rigorous testing. We use only the highest quality phosphors, which allows us to produce a warm white light that is completely safe for eye health.

Flicker and glare – where does it come from?
Many low-cost lamps with LED lighting leave a lot to be desired in terms of efficiency – they very often cause flickering, which is a nuisance to the eyes and leads to feelings of irritation. They also often use lenses with a narrow field of illumination to direct the light. While this practice achieves the intended effect, it causes glare during use.

Safe, effective and certified

Lighting that meets photobiological standards

Safe spectrum of blue light

Blue light is present in both natural sunlight and artificial lighting, including LED lighting. However, prolonged exposure to excess, high-intensity blue light can be harmful to eye health. Therefore, it is important that LED lighting has a well-balanced blue light spectrum that minimises negative effects on the eyes.

No flickering or glare

Safe LED lighting is designed to completely eliminate flickering light. Flicker can be disruptive and often leads to visual fatigue or headaches. It is therefore important that LED lighting has a stable light source. Also important is the light output – it must be properly directed. The correct distribution and distribution of light ensures comfortable illumination of the room, minimising the risk of glare.

No UV emissions

UV radiation is harmful to the skin and eyes, causing irritation, burns or accelerating skin ageing. LED lighting, which emits no UV radiation, provides safe and healthy lighting conditions,

Wide possibilities in selecting the color temperature

LEDs offer a wide range of color temperatures, from “warm” colors (low color temperatures), which are gentle on the eyes, to “cool” white light (high color temperatures), which can help with focus and concentration. The user can choose an LED bulb with an appropriate color temperature depending on their needs.

Eye fatigue minimised to the maximum

Our LED lighting is more uniform and less pulsating than traditional lighting, which can help to reduce eye fatigue.
