This is not the first time energy-saving bulbs have been criticised – 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.
Also asked, why would an LED light bulb flicker?
When they change out all of their LED Lamps and/or lighting fixtures and then turn them on, they often find them flickering. There are many reasons why an LED lamp can flicker, but the most common cause is a lack of resistance in the lamp to allow the dimmer curve to work correctly.
Do all LED lights flicker?
When a new source comes to market, the issue of flicker bubbles to the surface. However, LEDs may oscillate in light output even more than incandescent or fluorescent lamps did, says PNNL's Miller. Rectifying the AC to DC conversion causes a ripple in the voltage and current output from the driver to the LED.
Do LED lights give you a headache?
But because LED flickering is even more pronounced, with the light dimming by 100% rather than the roughly 35% of fluorescent lamps, there's a chance that LEDs could be even more likely to cause headaches. Another solution is to design the lights so that the flicker can't be detected.
