Eye comfort


Watch in comfort for longer.

If you worry about you and your family's eyes, LG OLED TVs provide a more comfortable way to watch for longer. They've been certified as low-blue light, flicker-free, and discomfort glare-free displays by international agencies TÜV rheinland (TUV) and underwriter laboratories (UL). LG OLED TVs are also the first panels from any kind of TV to receive the Eyesafe® certification developed by TUV-Eyesafe®.

Low blue light

Reduce your exposure to blue light.

Blue light comes from many sources — street lights, interior lights, the sun, and even your TV. According to Eyesafe®, if your eyes are exposed to large amounts of harmful blue light for a long time, melatonin can be suppressed, leading to problems such as sleep disturbance. Children and adolescents with underdeveloped irises are particularly vulnerable to retinal damage. So, when you watch TV, it’s important which TV you watch. Tests have found that LG OLED displays emit less blue light than LED displays.

Flicker-free, more comfort.

You may have noticed the flashing on a monitor before — that’s flicker. The testing agency UL states that if your eyes are exposed to this for too long, you’ll start to feel tired. The flicker effect can be both visible and invisible, and even the invisible flicker puts stress on your eyes. Flicker occurs on LED TVs when they have an operating system that makes backlights blink in order to control brightness, and because the response time of LED panels is relatively slow when compared to OLED. That faster response time and the absence of backlights mean LG OLED TVs don't have flicker.

*The results of the flicker-free certificaiton are related to OLED panel tests. The comparison was made between LG LED TVs and LG OLED TVs.
*Shooting conditions: 120Hz display for both OLED and LED, default picture setting / shutter speed : 50FPS 120°.
*The results may vary depending on the shooting and playback conditions.

Discomfort glare free

A glaring improvement.

LG OLED panels are the first of their kind to be verified as discomfort glare free by UL. Discomfort glare occurs when there is a big difference between the illuminance of the surrounding environment and the luminance of a display. UL conducted tests using a glare evaluation method officially recognized by the International Commission on Illumination — they verified that OLED panels provide moderate luminance in all illuminance conditions.

*Results are based on the unified glare rating (UGR) evaluation method.
*Verification is issued when UGR is less than 22 when watching TV between 70 lux and 300 lux.
*LG OLED TV panels have been verified as discomfort glare free by UL.

Eco-minded process

More eco-minded, every step of the way.

At LG, we're rising to the challenge of creating more eco-minded processes throughout the product life cycle of our OLED panels. LG OLED TVs have self-lit pixels, eliminating the need for backlights. This saves resources as there are fewer components. It means fewer toxic substances and less indoor air pollution when watching at home. It also reduces waste and improves the recycling rate at the end of the product life cycle. Throughout production, usage, and disposal, LG OLED TVs are more eco-minded every step of the way.

We keep the environment in mind.

The structures of LED and LG OLED panels might surprise you. LED TVs use backlights, and multiple other layers like a fluorescent sheet and combined optical sheet to create an image. But LG OLED panels emit light by themselves. As a result, they don't need backlights, any extra layers, or the parts that hold those layers together. So, by choosing to use OLED panels, we're helping contribute to environmental protection.

Design that's carefully considered.

While there are internal differences between LED and LG OLED TVs, there are also external differences. We carefully consider every aspect of our TV designs, that's why we use back covers that are mostly metal, instead of ones that are plastic. Using metal helps reduce emissions of volatile organic compounds — the substances that may cause indoor air pollution and cancer.

It's official, LG OLED TVs are certified eco products.

LG's efforts to make OLED better for you and the environment have been officially recognized. Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS), a Swiss multinational testing agency, have certified LG OLED TV sets and LG OLED panels as Eco Products for a number of reasons. Both the TV sets and panels are Cadmium free, and are more efficiently produced with fewer parts and a higher recycling rate than LED TVs. Additionally, the panels were certified because they are Indium Phosphide free. They also don't use plastic or flame retardant, so have lower emissions of chemicals.
