I bought 2 Philips LED 5W light bulbs today.
To replace my usual 14W Philips Genie bulbs.
The LED bulbs at 5W are about 35% brighter than the Genie bulbs at 14W. So that's fantastic.
But the LED bulbs are causing this incredible pain in my eyes. That's if I look at the bulb directly. Even after a few minutes my eyes are still paining. But I don't have this problem with the Genie bulbs.
Then I read this article stating that LED bulbs can cause irreparable damage to the retina:
Anyone else have this problem?
