At Stella Lighting, we recognize the role lighting plays in creating an intimate ambiance within any home environment. However, one may wonder: Is lamp light good for eyes? On our website, we aim to equip clients with insights so that they may make informed decisions regarding their well-being. Therefore, let’s investigate the correlation between lamp light and eye health.

Recognizing Light and Its Impact on Vision 

Light is made up of many hues that each correspond to specific wavelengths. Blue light is shorter and has more incredible energy than its warmer yellow-tone counterpart. Exposure to blue wavelengths can help regulate our bodies’ natural sleep-wake cycles, increasing alertness during daytime hours. Still, too much exposure in the evening can suppress melatonin production, disrupt restful naps, and eventually cause fatigue.

Can Lamp Lighting Cause Eye Strain? 

While lamp light doesn’t pose an immediate risk to ocular health, certain conditions could increase eye strain and create discomfort in our vision. Stella Lighting can assist with creating an eye-friendly lighting environment:

Color Temperature

Color Temperature (Kelvin) of light has an impactful visual effect; warm light, typically below 3500K, creates a soothing yellowish tint, which is easier on the eyes. Stella Lamps offers various bulbs with different Kelvin temperatures so you can customize lighting according to your tastes and needs.


Poor or insufficient lighting can strain your eyes, especially for tasks requiring intense concentration like reading or computer work. Stella Lighting offers various lamps, from dimmable table lamps to radiant floor lamps with remote controls, so you can tailor lighting levels according to your comfort.


Glare can lead to eye fatigue and uncomfortable squinting when exposed to certain light sources in our vision. Stella Lamps have been designed specifically to mitigate glare, with lampshades designed to soften harsh illumination beams.

Guidelines for Lamp Use to Alleviate Eye Strain

To provide maximum eye comfort when using lamps, here are a few additional suggestions:

  • Take regular breaks: Every 20 minutes, break from working or viewing screens by looking away for 20 seconds at something in the distance to alleviate eye strain. This simple act can do wonders.
  • Position your lamp strategically: Place the light source behind your computer screen or workspace to minimize eye discomfort and eliminate glare for optimal results.
  • Opt for natural lighting: When possible, employ natural daylight as the primary source of illumination to lessen dependence on artificial sources for illumination and reduce costs related to artificial lighting costs significantly. 
  • Investigate Blue Light Filtration Solutions: For optimal eye health during evening hours, use glasses or screen protectors to filter out blue light. Such solutions help minimize eye strain caused by blue light exposure.

By adhering to Stella Lighting’s recommendations and selecting suitable lamps, you can create an environment with optimal illumination that exudes style and promotes eye comfort. 

Remember: proper lighting is an investment in overall health and wellness! Illuminate your life healthily using Stella!
