The increase in the use of LED technology in today’s consumer electronics has brought eye safety concerns to the forefront. Research has indicated that hazards such as eyestrain, headaches, and risk of eye damage are associated with LED use, specifically the exposure to blue light emissions in white LEDs. These hazards have made eye safety testing a critical component of producing quality LED products.The increase in the use of LED technology in today’s consumer electronics has brought eye safety concerns to the forefront.
