By now, urban dwellers who are glued to their smartphones all-day should know the harmfulness of Blue Light also known as High Energy Visible Light (HEV) Light. Under prolonged exposure, the HEV light can produce negative eye health consequences, including digital vision syndrome, melatonin suppression, and long-term effects on the retina that could lead to potential increases in age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.
Thankfully, there are companies out there trying to develop solutions to circumvent the problem without compromising our current city lifestyle. Eyesafe® works with display manufacturers in developing standard on measurement of exposure of Blue Light as well as providing solutions to minimize the user’s Blue Light exposure. For instance, Eyesafe® has worked with ZAGG (stock quote: ZAGG), a mobile accessory maker, in developing screen protector which could filter blue light emitted from the mobile phones and laptops.
At the recent Computex, Taipei, Eyesafe® has launched their latest solution – Eyesafe® Display in conjunction with DELL’s (stock quote: DELL) latest laptop series. The partnership with DELL allows Eyesafe® to use both hardware and software to manage Blue Light at the source. As such, the display disperses the Blue Light across the spectrum without comprising the color integrity. Striking a good balance of RGB, the display maintains vivid color accuracy.
Currently, DELL is the first OEM to integrate this technology to their new Dell G7 17” and Alienware m17. Dell plans to expand Eyesafe® display across the entire Alienware portfolio in coming months.
