It is no secret that the key to good eyesight is proper lighting and thus choosing a good task light is very important. Our Parenting World family is very pleased and delighted with the new 3M Polarizing Task Light. It is so easy to use and even Di Di knows how to adjust the brightness of the task light whenever he wants to use it to read his story books. 

Daddy who is a medical doctor and specialist in preventive medicine always advocates the need to have proper lighting as part of good reading habits especially in children. The other good reading habits include keeping the distance of the book to the eye to about 30 cm and having regular rest intervals (e.g. take a 5 minutes break for every 30 minutes of reading). A good lighting can help to reduce the strain on the child’s eyes and thus reduce the risk of myopia.

We simply love the new LED5000, it is stylish, easy to carry around and able to fit into any room or workstation. It is easy to control using one touch panel. Most importantly, it is a glare-free lamp and helps to protect our precious eyes, you won’t feel exhausted even after working for a longer time. We often have to spend many hours on our workstation and using the task light, our eyes actually feel more comfortable!
