Today BenQ, a Taiwanese multinational company, officially launched their Eye Care Series of monitors. The monitors that come with model number EW2440L (24-inch) and EW2740L (27-inch) could cost Rs 18,000 and Rs 25,000 respectively. These new products come with Low Blue Light and Flicker Free Technologies.
The company is in fact trying to make a difference to health conscience consumers by adopting an eye-care philosophy and incorporating new technology that doesn't effect eyes to disastrous level.
BenQ are leading the charge to downgrade the impact technology is having on our eyes. BenQ have eliminated flicker from their monitors and have included different modes which cut glare and significantly reduce blue LED light emissions which have shown to be detrimental to the eye.
Talking about the new monitors, "It's our eye-care commitment," said Country Head for BenQ India, Rajeev Singh. He further added saying, "It's a matter of ‘eyegonomics' if you like, making our range superior in terms of eye comfort and general optical health."
Computer Vision Syndrome or CVS is a very real condition, impacting countless Indians who have little choice but to subject their eyes to the on-going glare of a computer screen as part of the modern work day. According to the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health(NIOSH, US) Statistics more than 90% of the people are suffering from CVS spending 3 or more hours on computer screen in a single stretch.
According to Dr. Rasheena Bansal, See ‘n' Smile Children Eye care, Consultant, Pediatric Ophthalmology, Today we are surrounded by laptop, tablets, smartphones and PC at our offices. Prolonged usage of these devices may cause eye strain and blurred vision resulting in Computer Vision Syndrome. Since we can't avoid technology we must make sure we are using the right technology to avoid CVS, such as anti-glare glasses, flicker free technology enabled screens and ergonomic solutions to ensure proper seating posture amongst others. I am glad that today we have such effective solutions that can curtail the risk of CVS amongst the users."
Both these monitors features MHL, the next-generation HD connection, the monitors allow audiovisual enthusiasts to connect their smartphones and gain access to a wide range of mobile content, from documents and photos to Full HD videos.
