3M Polarizing Task Light LED K1710, Mint
Reduce Glare and Eye Strain with 3M's Polarizing Technology
The 3M Polarizing Task Light LED K1710 uses patented polarizing filter technology from 3M to significantly reduce glare while providing effective illumination. This polarized light helps block intense reflected light that can lead to eye strain, headaches, and fatigue during visually intensive tasks.
3M's polarizing filters are designed to scatter light rays and prevent them from reflecting off surfaces like paper, computer screens, and more. This diffusion and polarization of light creates a glare-free environment that is easier on the eyes. Studies show that prolonged exposure to glare can damage eye tissues and lead to vision problems.
Polarized lighting has many benefits for eye health. It helps prevent eyestrain, headaches, and dry eyes caused by glare. Tasks like reading, writing, crafting, and computer work can be performed more comfortably with polarized illumination. The 3M Polarizing Task Light makes activities like paperwork, sewing, and browsing the computer easier by removing harsh reflected light.
Customizable Brightness Levels
The 3M Polarizing Task Light LED K1710 features 5 customizable brightness levels to suit any task or environment. The brightness levels range from a gentle 800 lux up to an ultra-bright 2200 lux, allowing you to adjust the light intensity for different needs.
Using the easy touch sensor controls on the base of the lamp, you can seamlessly transition between brightness levels with just a tap or slide of your finger. This makes it simple to find the perfect light setting for any activity.
For intricate tasks like sewing or model building, lower brightness around 800-1200 lux is recommended. For reading and paperwork, aim for 1400-1600 lux. And for detailed computer work or tasks requiring maximum visibility, crank it up to 2200 lux. The 3M Polarizing Task Light gives you full control to customize the brightness to your needs.
