26 Asus monitors make the ‘low blue light’ grade, more than any other brand

Reducing the amount of blue light can help reduce eye strain and fatigue

Shopping for monitors that are easier on your eyes? Well, Asus just had its monitors certified by display testing expert TÜV Rheinland. It announced that 26 of its monitors were certified for low blue light, more than all current brands in the market while another 28 displays were certified flicker-free.

Why is low blue light a big deal? It’s because studies have shown that excessive exposure to blue light can affect both eyesight health and sleep.

Reducing both blue light and flicker on monitors will help those who spend a long time working at their desks, being easier on their eyes and possibly reduce eye strain and fatigue headaches.

Asus has four different blue light filter settings on its latest monitors, so you can choose between 20 per cent, 30 per cent, 50 per cent and 70 per cent, depending on what you’re using the monitor for and when. All the modes are accessible via an onscreen display menu.

If you’re in the market for a low blue light monitor, the range includes the PG and MG gaming series, the Designo home entertainment series, the PA and PB graphic professional series and the everyday use Essential series.
