Eye protection and comfort with tested and certified quality displays
Rapid advances in display technology saw corresponding improvements in display quality in terms of pixel density, consistency, color gamut coverage, and refresh rate. At the same time, evolutionary improvements in the eye care dimension of display monitors saw the adoption of hardware low blue light technology to ensure color fidelity while reducing harmful blue light. DC modulation of LCD display backlighting helps to eliminate frequency flicker throughout the full range of brightness adjustments for effective mitigation of eye fatigue. Some studies have shown that color accuracy influences user comfort as well. Good color accuracy ensures consistency of color perception when the same content is shown on different devices. Higher refresh rates also make displays feel smoother. The reduction in streaking while watching videos, playing games, or browsing web content enhances visual comfort. The eye care concept must nevertheless continue to evolve to keep up with advances in IT products.

Productive and profitable workspace with Eye Comfort certification 3.0
When TÜV Rheinland began promoting eye protection for the display market in 2014, it elevated the standard for displays from safety to eye care and helped vendors develop a wide variety of eye comfort displays. In addition to the successful of upgrading of industry technology, consumers now also have their displays to be better for health as well. In 2023, TÜV Rheinland upgrades the eye comfort certification for the display industry.
Eye protection displays often feature a variety of labels such as low blue-light, flicker-free, refresh rate, color gamut, color accuracy and ambient light management. The product certification marks of each display will vary depending on the brand and model as well. Display certifications generally highlight a certain technical attribute (e.g., hardware blue light protection) with keywords in the safety mark that emphasize what test was passed. The new Eye Comfort 3.0 certification mark from TÜV Rheinland offers a more consumer-friendly identification that emphasizes the overall eye care attributes. A more sophisticated technical assessment process provides consumers and buyers with indicators that are easier to judge.
