The consumer market has been naturally apprehensive of the new technology associated with LED Light Bulbs. Used correctly, you should be able to benefit from LED Light Bulbs in safety whilst enjoying the benefits of this new technology.
Those who remain cautious of LED bulbs should take care to install them at a height and location which is out of eye level, so that the likelihood of looking into the LED Lighting source is significantly reduced, thus lessening the risk of blue light hazard.
