Binge-watching your favorite show on your new flat-screen TV, lights off, snuggled up comfortably on the sofa sure sounds wonderful. However, after a few hours, your eyes may start to feel tired, strained, and dry. It may also be difficult for you to sleep later that night. What causes these unfortunate symptoms?
In today’s digital age, most people are frequently glued to various LED screens: smartphones, tablets, computers, and TVs. Looking at said screens for long periods exposes us to harmful blue light, which accelerates eye fatigue. Studies suggest that continued exposure to blue light over time could lead to damaged retinal cells. This can cause vision problems like age-related macular degeneration.
A journal published by Science Daily revealed that excessive use of iPads, laptops, smartphones, or other devices could cause severe eye damage in children also. Studies found that children who frequently watched LED screens had a 30% higher risk of nearsightedness (myopia).
Most people are aware of the various hazards LED screens pose, and users worldwide began to realize that using projectors as a replacement to TVs worked wonders to protect their eyes.
How are projectors more eye-friendly?
LED light sources enter your eyes directly. When we focus on a LED screen for an extended period, especially in a dark room, our pupils fail to constrict fully. This means your eyes are letting in more light than they should to compensate for the surrounding darkness. On the other hand, the light produced by a projector is first projected onto a screen, or white wall then enters the human eye through diffused reflection.
In simple terms, glaring at a LED screen is similar to looking directly at the sun. However, watching a projected screen is like looking at everyday objects in nature or the moon since it reflects light from the sun. This is why you can watch a 2-hour movie at the theater with little to no eye fatigue.
XGIMI projectors are certified to shield your eyes
*AURA features diffused reflection imaging for a safer view
XGIMI guarantees that the hardware within every projector has undergone blue-light adjustment. This allows the device to naturally reduce blue light exposure.
The XGIMI HORIZON Pro is TUV Rheinland Low Blue Light certified for eye protection, a credible eye-protection authentication used by top companies like Samsung and Dell. This demonstrates XGIMI’s determination to provide the safe and quality viewing experience that users deserve.
Intelligent eye-protection technology safeguards your child
Laser projectors are phenomenal options for a truly safe audio-visual experience. The Ultra Short Throw (UST) technology projects enormous images from short distances while maintaining a short focus and high brightness. AURA 4K laser projector’s integrated automatic light dimmer, powered by advanced IR sensors, detects when your child or pet approaches the light source and immediately dims the laser and screen, effectively shielding their eyes from damaging radiation.
AURA also eliminates harmful blue light and utilizes diffuse reflection imaging, all to assure you and your family never have to worry about eye strain caused by direct light exposure, even when watching a long movie.
