Are LED lamps good for reading?
Similarly one may ask, which light is best for reading?
No matter what your personal lamp style, experts say that halogen and fluorescent bulbs generally do a better job of illuminating reading material than normal incandescent bulbs. Halogen bulbs produce a whiter light that is perfect for reading and the sharp white light ensures good page illumination.
Subsequently, question is, is daylight bulb good for reading? Daylight (5,000 to 6,500 Kelvin) has a more bluish tone. This light color will maximize contrast for colors, making it ideal for working, reading or applying makeup.
Subsequently, question is, is LED light better for your eyes?
There are several other light bulbs that are a better choice for your eye health, including traditional incandescent bulbs, LED bulbs, and halogen bulbs. Warm white fluorescent CFLs can be a good replacement, but do know that they still emit a small amount of UV rays.
How bright should a reading lamp be?
A reading light should be bright (with a brightness level of at least 3,000 and up to 6,000 Lumens) enough to stimulate your aspiration and creativity, without creating glare on your computer screen or fatigue on your eyes after a brief drift.
