There are many LED lights on the market today, but they are not all created equal. This is why we developed our Philips EyeComfort range. Our LEDs conform to our EyeComfort standard, which measures our products against a set of key comfort criteria: flicker, glare, stroboscopic effect, photobiological safety, dimmable, tuning and color rendering – factors that can impact the comfort of your eyes.

Some LEDs may appear to flicker or produce a stroboscopic effect. This could cause distraction, irritation and affect certain health conditions.
EyeComfort LEDs are designed to minimize the factors that cause these effects, ensuring complete comfort for the eyes whether you’re reading, working or relaxing.
Some LEDs give off glare, where it is difficult to see due to the brightness of the light. This could cause visual discomfort and even headaches.
EyeComfort LEDs are designed to reduce glare, ensuring complete comfort for the eyes in every room of your home.
Color rendering refers to how well a light source renders color.
EyeComfort LEDs have a high Color Rendering Index, meaning that your home's furnishings appear in high definition and true color.
Many LEDs emit just one ‘color temperature’ – such as warm white or cool daylight –
which means you cannot change the mood in a room.
However, tunable EyeComfort LEDs allow you to adjust the color temperature. That lets you select an invigorating cool light in the mornings for instance, or a cozy dim light at night.
Some people find that LEDs produce an irritating hum. This is caused by the way the bulbs use electricity to emit light.
EyeComfort LEDs were designed to eliminate audible noise so that you can work, study and play without any distractions.
Some 'dimmable' LEDs of lower quality tend to flicker when you turn the light down.
Our EyeComfort LEDs use smart electronic design so that you can create the perfect ambiance and enjoy a gentle solution for your eyes.
“The type of lighting we use day to day can have an impact on our quality of life. For instance, controlling the colour and intensity of lighting over the course of the day can improve our sleep patterns, which can be critical to well-being and health. By contrast, poor artificial lighting can have deleterious effects on the quality of life and lead to disturbed sleep patterns, eye discomfort, and even headaches. Choosing the right lighting is important.”
Lighting can play an important role for, productivity, children’s eyesight development, aiding the elderly and our wake-up and sleep-cycle. Watch the video of Andrew Stockman, Professor of Ophthalmology, about how EyeComfort achieves good lighting and why it is necessary.
How do people in different parts of the world think about lighting? We asked over 10,000 people across the planet about their attitudes to lighting. View our key findings to see how you compare.
