Digital eye strain is a growing issue in the U.S., per the 2018 Nielsen Total Audience Report which found that Americans spend more than 11 hours per day in front of a screen. With an increase in screen time, The Vision Council reports that more than 60% of Americans report symptoms of eye strain from their digital devices. In order to combat these issues, BenQ launched its exclusive eye-care technology line worldwide in 2014 to help viewers reduce digital eye strain and fatigue and provide them with a healthier and more enjoyable viewing experience at work and at home.
The eye-care line includes the below technological advancements, and all BenQ monitors feature at least one of the below eye-care technologies.
· Brightness Intelligence detects ambient light levels in a viewing environment to automatically adjust on-screen brightness automatically.
· Brightness Intelligence Plus detects ambient light levels in a viewing environment to automatically adjust on-screen brightness and color temperature throughout the day.
· ZeroFlicker™ Light technology eliminates the harmful flicker of traditional LCDs to prevent fatigue and vision damage.
· Low Blue Light technology filters out hazardous blue light, effectively reducing eye fatigue and irritation.
“I am very excited to partner with BenQ America as the spokesperson for their exclusive eye-care technology line,” said Dr. Patel, OD, FAAO. “The company’s commitment to enhancing consumers’ lives, especially with preventative eye care, is incredibly important in this technological world as consumers continue to spend more time in front of screens.
