Does OLED TV emit blue light?

The OLED TV emits a minimum amount of blue light. It emits 70 percent less harmful radiations when compared to an average LCD.  The latest, more advanced version emit only 6.5% blue light. So, OLED does emit blue light, but it’s intensity is too low to be too significant.

Is OLED better for eyes?

The blue light emitted from LCDs and screens in general poses a risk to optimum eye functioning. It leads to eye strain, itching, blurred vision and sometimes irreversible damage to the retina.

With an Organic Light Emitting Diode, the eyes are exposed to only a third of this blue light. Due to its auto-luminescence, it does not require a backlight. This reduced eye strains, and is considerably more comfortable for eyes. 

The elimination of flickering from the screen means that it causes less stimulation and less exhaustion for eyes. The high contrast feature makes visualizations smoother.  It also prevents any sort of long term damage to the vision, hence OLED is better for the eyes.

Is OLED or LCD better for your eyes?

OLED means a considerably less amount of blue light reaching your eyes as compared to an LCD. Hence there is less eye-strain and less chances of itching, irritation or myopia. So, OLED is better for eyes. Due to its high contrast levels and no-flicker features, it causes lesser eye-related problems.

LCD, however does emit considerable amounts of blue light and is harmful for eyes,

Is OLED screen bad for your eyes?

Any screen when used for long, uninterrupted periods of time leads to eye damage. If the screen is held too closely, accommodation is impaired. With loss of eye movement and a reduced frequency of blinking while looking at a screen, the chances of getting dry, irritated eyes are considerably increased.

The continuous stimulation also has hazardous effects on eyes and may lead to defects in forming clear images.

OLED, however has an added advantage of lesser blue light, higher contrast, anti-flicker and hence fewer chances of long term damage to eyes.
