The first enemy of sore eyes is blue light. It has the shortest wavelength and the strongest energy of the light spectrum, which makes it the most likely to cause eye discomfort like blurry vision, eyestrain, dry eye, to sum it up, it makes your eyes tired. But here are some recommendations on managing TV binge watching.
– Pick a show and stick to it.
-Try not to watch the whole season at once, but rather limit yourself to 2-3 episodes at once.
-Take a break and give your eyes a break. follow the 20-20-20 rule, every 20 minutes look at something in the distance around 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds.
-Stay hydrated and stock up on some healthy snacks.
-Invest in a good TV. Like Hisense, all of our TV’s are low blue light certified so will be kinder on your eyes.
Did you know blue light is part of a nature and our everyday lives, and is not so dangerous per se? The real issue is longer direct exposure. So, when binging TV, try to block harmful blue light through a filtered lenses on glasses, or even better, choose a device that does it for you. The Hisense Laser TV, for example, completely avoids the harmful blue light spectrum, centering the wavelength around 455 nm~465 nm and emitting 40% lower light radiation than a regular LCD TV.
The Hisense Laser TV perfectly merges cinema feel with Smart TV functions. With a big screen up to 120’’ and Ambient Light rejection screen it offers a comfortable viewing experience, while the Ultra-short throw Tricroma Laser projector makes it easy to place right underneath the screen, just about 20–40 cm from the wall. Don’t worry about the laser being hurtful to your eyes. Hisense Laser TV has a safety proximity detection that blurs laser light if anyone (or anything) gets too close.
