Philips 247E6BDAD SoftBlue 24-inch Monitor Protects Eyes

Philips 247E6BDAD SoftBlue Monitor

The new 24-inch Philips Soft Blue Monitor (247E6BDAD) uses Anti-blue light technology to protect users against the damaging effects of blue light from LED-backlit computer screens. Continuous blue light exposure through extended screen time may pose a potential risk of long-term damage to eyesight. Does it actually work? I suppose you’d have to stare at this monitor and a long time to find out. But at $170 it is reasonably priced. Read on for more information from the company.

Blue light, the end of the visible portion of the color spectrum (380-450 nm), is made of high-energy waves. These waves are strong and penetrating. Blue light radiates from computer monitors, smart phones, and tablets. Consumers spend hours a day in front of their screens working and socializing, however screen time comes with side effects. Headaches, eyestrain and eye fatigue are common complaints after working on a computer for an extended period of time.

The Philips SoftBlue display reduces eye fatigue by eliminating 90 percent of blue light at harmful wavelengths, helping to mitigate the negative impact on eyes and improve well-being. Unlike software-based approaches, the SoftBlue display works using a new technology which changes the peak of the blue-chip in the LED. It does this without detracting from color fidelity or brightness, so users can enjoy accustomed image quality without the prolonged detrimental effect of blue-light exposure.

Eye Absorbs Lights

In addition to headaches and eyestrain, studies also show that long-term, chronic exposure to blue light may lead to macular degeneration (AMD), a permanent loss of vision in the center of the eye due to damage to the retina. As more people spend time in front of their screens, Dr. Carl Kupfer, former Director of the US National Eye Institute, National Institutes of Health, predicts, “the prevalence of AMD is expected to rise 6.3 million by the year 2030.” Dr. Kupfer also indicates that “macular degeneration will soon take on aspects of an epidemic.”
