White LEDs are no more hazardous than other lighting technologies that have the same correlated color temperature (CCT). Just because most LEDs have a blue peak in their SPDs or they're blue-pumped doesn't mean they necessarily have more potential to incur blue light damage to the retina. Exposure to blue-enriched light at the wrong biological time can disrupt the human circadian rhythm. Among all light sources, LEDs are the most circadian-friendly light source because of their incomparable flexibility in CCT customization.
Does LED Lighting Pose Health Risks—Blue Light Hazard, Circadian Disruption?
Lamps and light fixtures that incorporate white LED sources have been employed ubiquitously in residences, offices, commercial buildings, industrial facilities, and a host of other environments as energy efficient alternatives to less efficient products. Since Edison's invention of incandescent...
