Easy-on-the-Eyes Productivity

By Philips Monitors, 26 Aug 2019.

Do you find that your eyes get too dry after a long day at work? Do you see dark spots in your vision temporarily? If the answer is “yes”, then you are suffering from eye strain. Other symptoms include watery eyes, blurred vision, and headache, among others.

Digital eye strain is a new danger of a technology lifestyle.

Perhaps you have spent way too much time in front of your computer. Maybe you should lay off screen time while your eyes “recover”. What, it is not possible to do so? If this is the case, then it really is time to invest in a monitor that puts eye care in top priority.

Digital eye strain is a new hidden danger of a modern technology lifestyle that many people are unaware of. While we take pains to protect our eyes from various elements, such as sunlight, water and hazardous substances by using a pair of sunglasses, goggles or safety glasses, we often overlook the necessity to protect our eyes when we are using the computer.

Although eye strain from prolonged use of monitor or smart phone is nothing new, and eye damage is no longer uncommon among adults, admittedly, most of us ignore the symptoms of eye health deterioration and do not take the necessary action.

LowBlue Mode
Remember the old days when you put a screen filter on our computer monitor, or even wear a yellow-tinted pair of sunglasses when using the computer? Ah, what a hassle that was, but those were the days!

With LowBlue Mode vs. Without.

Do away with those because getting a Philips monitor that features LowBlue Mode setting is the answer. Specially developed by Philips Monitors for eye well being, this smart technology reduces harmful shortwave blue light effectively by up to 90%, without compromising on visual quality or color vibrancy.

20-20-20 rule
Digital eye strain is eased when LowBlue Mode is turned on as the monitor is used over a long period of time. However, don't forget to also adopt the 20-20-20 rule. This means that after every 20 minutes, look away from your screen at something that is 20 feet away, for 20 seconds.

Adopt the 20-20-20 rule for better eye health.

It is said that this simple rule naturally prevents eye strain, when put into action. While it is not possible to know the exact distance of an object, it essentially means focusing on a faraway object. The duration of 20 seconds is believed to be the time needed for eyes to completely relax. Therefore, it does not necessarily have to be 20 seconds on the dot, but longer. Use an alarm clock or mobile app to alert you of "time out" from your screen.

Flicker-free technology
Another technology that makes viewing the monitor more comfortable to the eyes is Flicker-free. Although some people are not very sensitive to the flicker on their screen, there are users who do find that this flicker causes eye fatigue as well, besides the shortwave blue light emitted.

Flicker-free technology regulates brightness on screen.

With this Philips innovation, a new solution is used to regulate brightness of the screen, and at the same time, reduce flicker, for a more comfortable viewing.

With all three of the above solutions combined, easy-on-the-eyes productivity is surely something to look forward to with Philips Monitors. Some of the models to check out that are packed with both LowBlue Mode and Flicker-free technology are: 271V8, 271S8QJAB, 246E8FJAB, and 349P7FUBEB. Once you have tried out Philips Monitors’ innovation, you can certainly “see” and feel a difference.
