    The comfort of eyes is a global concern with people spending more time indoors and in front of computer screens and smart devices. The World Health Organization predicts that one in two people will be short-sighted by 2050. Despite reliance on our eyes for everyday living, research reveals that eye care takes a backseat compared to fitness and weight loss.

    Light quality is an important feature in lighting. At Signify, comfort of the eyes is a key priority. We continuously optimize our products by bringing together in-depth understanding of user needs, lighting application knowledge, and scientific insights.

    There are many LED bulbs on the market today, but they are not all created equal. That’s why we developed our Philips EyeComfort range. Look for LEDs that conform to our EyeComfort standard, which measures our products against a set of key eye comfort criteria: flicker, glare, stroboscopic effect, photobiological safety, dimmability, tuning and color rendering. These factors can impact the comfort of your eyes.
