Whether in the home or office, we find ourselves staring at computer monitors for hours on end. Today’s digital lifestyle brings with it increased health risks, especially for our eyes. Being in front of a computer all day increases the risk of Computer Vision Syndrome(CVS).
ASUS Eye Care technology has been designed to prevent CVS symptoms caused by prolonged computer use. With ASUS Eye Care technology, ASUS monitors ensure a comfortable viewing experience while keeping your eyes healthy at the same time.
Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)
ASUS Ultra-low Blue Light Technology protects you from harmful blue light
How does blue light damage your eyes?
The cornea, situated at the front of the eye, is a transparent cover that protects your iris, pupil, and anterior chamber. Light passes through the cornea and pupil before the crystalline lens focuses it on the retina.
High-energy blue-violet light in the narrow 415-455nm band is particularly damaging to eyes, in particular the lens and retina. The blue band of the light spectrum yields more energy and can pass straight through your eye – resulting in myopia and macular degeneration.
Blue light from monitors may cause eye damage, strains, headaches, and sleep disorders. Children are more susceptible to eye damage because their crystalline lens is less effective in filtering out blue-light, adding to the risk of age-related macular degeneration.
ASUS Ultra-low Blue Light Technology – Blue Light Filter
ASUS researchers have been hard at work trying to determine the right amount of blue light reduction for various tasks; the latest ASUS Low Blue Light Monitors feature a OSD menu that allows you to access four different Blue Light Filter settings onscreen:
ASUS Flicker- Free Technology prevents you from monitor flickering
What is display flicker?
Flicker is caused by the rapid on/off cycle of the LED backlight as it tries to maintain the brightness of the display. Flicker is more noticeable when the display is set to low brightness settings.
How does flicker affect your eyes?
Flicker constantly bombards the human eye with a drastic change in brightness. These changes in light intensity cause the pupil to expand and contract, thereby causing eye fatigue, strain, and headaches.
ASUS Flicker-Free Technology
ASUS Flicker-Free technology uses Smart Dynamic Backlight Adjustment to reduce flicker for a comfortable viewing experience. Smart Dynamic Backlight Adjustment avoids low brightness levels that lead to high-speed LED backlight flashing.
Monitors with ASUS Flicker-Free technology protect you from eye fatigue, irritation and strains. This technology gives you flicker-free monitors so you work on spreadsheets, play games, or watch videos comfortably for hours on end.
User ergonomics play a part too
ASUS Ergonomic Monitors designed for your comfort
Improper posture could lead to numbness in your fingers, headaches, and lower back, shoulder, or neck pains. In addition, having your monitor set at a wrong height or angle can strain your eyes.
ASUS monitors are ergonomically designed for your comfort
All of the symptoms mentioned above may be relieved simply by adopting the correct body posture at your workstation. ASUS monitors feature a smart ergonomic design with full tilt, pivot, swivel, and height adjustments to give you the ideal viewing position whether you’re surfing the net, viewing pictures or watching movies, or getting work done.
