‘BenQ has eliminated flicker from monitors and have included different modes, which cut glare and significantly reduce blue LED light emissions that have shown to be detrimental to the eye,’ BenQ India Country Head Rajeev Singh said.
It’s a matter of ‘eyegonomics’, which makes the range superior in terms of eye comfort and general optical health, he added.

What is Computer Vision Syndrome?
Computer vision syndrome (CVS) is a condition which is ever-present in today’s urban population who spend all days on their laptops or computers. Viewing a computer screen often makes the eyes work harder than normal. The unique characteristics and high visual demands of working on computers make individuals susceptible to various vision related conditions.
How is working on computers more strenuous than say reading a book?
Viewing a computer screen is very different than reading a printed page. Often the letters on the computer screen are not as precise or sharply defined, the level of contrast of the letters to the background is reduced, and the presence of glare and reflections on the screen may make viewing difficult. Different distances and angles also result in aggravating the issue. Even minor vision problems can turn into major ones due to protracted computer use. Even people who have an eyeglass or contact lens prescription may find it’s not suitable for the specific viewing distances of their computer screen.  In fact along with eye conditions, the posture we use laptops in can result in muscle spasms or pain in the neck, shoulder or back.
