Lamps Guide

Which color lamp is good for eyes?

Eyes are precious tools that enable us to fully experience life around us, yet prolonged screen use or working under dim light conditions can strain them, leading to discomfort, headaches, and blurred vision. So choosing lighting options with appropriate colors and wattages is vital in protecting our vision and eyesight. But, Which color lamp is good for eyes? 

At Stella Lighting, our goal is to craft lighting solutions that both serve their function and promote eye health and well-being. Let’s investigate the science of light together so we can find an optimal lamp to meet our individual needs.

Color Spectrum and Its Impact on Eyes

Light is measured on a spectrum, from cool colors like blue on one end of the spectrum to warmer hues such as red at the other end. Kelvins (K), which measures the color temperature of lamps, indicates how warm their light emits is; here is how different color temperatures impact human eyes:

  • Warm White (2700K-3000K) lighting offers the ideal soft yellowish glow to promote relaxation and create an atmosphere conducive to coziness in bedrooms, living rooms, and reading nooks alike. Studies indicate it reduces eye strain while inducing feelings of calm – perfect for bedrooms!
  • Cool White (4000K-5000K) lighting mimics natural daylight to increase alertness, making this option the ideal choice for home offices, kitchens, and craft rooms that need focus and clarity in their workspaces.
  • Daylight (5000K-6500K) offers excellent visibility and can increase energy levels; however, prolonged exposure may disrupt sleep patterns; use this light strategically in task-related environments only.

Stella Tip 

Dimmable lamps like the Stella 2 Desk Lamp allow you to customize their color temperature according to your activity – from cool white for focused work, to warm white relaxation or just plain fun in an evening! 

Watts Up? Understanding Light Wattage and Brightness

Light wattage measures the amount of energy a lamp uses to produce light, with more watts typically translating to brighter illumination conditions; however, other considerations must also be taken into account – here is what to keep in mind:

  • LED Efficiency: With their superior energy-saving performance compared to incandescent bulbs, these bulbs allow users to achieve bright illumination using lower wattages of bulbs for enhanced lighting effects.
  • Lumens: It measures the brightness of light coming from lamps; higher lumen ratings represent brighter lighting. Seek recommendations tailored specifically for your workplace size and needs to find optimal lumen output.

Finding a Lighting Solution that Suits You: Finding Balance is Key

How much watt light is good for eyes? Ideal light color and wattage depend upon how you intend to use a space, here is a helpful guide:

  • Relaxation: Soft white light (2700K-3000K), at lower wattages (around 40W equivalent in LED).
  • Work and Focus Lighting Options: Provided the light is cool white (4000K-5000K), its wattage should remain moderate (around 60W equivalent in LED equivalent).
  • Detailed tasks: Consider pairing a cool white light and an intense task light for maximum lumen output.

Remember to experiment and see what works for your eyes!
