Could UHD TVs be better for your eyesight?

Optimum Curvature_VisualIt’s common when you own flat TV screens that you position yourself at an appropriate distance from the screen so as to preserve good eye health. But UHD TVs may change all of that.

Recently, UHD TVs have entered and transformed the TV market. Many experts are hypothesizing that UHD screen with a curved form factor may impact our eyesight.

According to Dr. James Edward Sison, a consultant at the St. Lukes Medical Center’s Comprehensive Occupational Health and Environmental Safety Services, prolonged hours of watching TV can cause eyestrain because your eyes are constantly focusing. Curved UHD TV produces images that are closer to real life that may help reduce viewing fatigue versus lower HD quality TVs.

Because the viewing distance using a flat TV is shorter from the center and longer towards the periphery, your eye tends to focus more especially during fast paced sequences. Curved UHD TVs on the other hand give you a more uniform viewing distance when your eyes move from the center of the screen to the periphery.

Curved UHD TVs have the potential to introduce brand new and revolutionary viewing experience for audiences.

Samsung’s Curved UHD TV is one example of a curved TV in the market. It boasts of crisp picture quality, 4x more powerful than HD screen alone, and a change in perspective that makes images appear larger and true-to-life.

As compared to flat screen TVs, this special screen allows for a more realistic viewing experience even in different angles. The combination of the curved screen and UHD technology automatically adjusts contrast for a greater sense of depth and gives a 3D effect without requiring glasses.

Samsung has employed state-of-the-art engineering to optimize the curve for unparalleled experiences, completely redesigning and engineering many of the components from the ground up. The Samsung Curved UHD TV is available in 78-inches, 65-inches, and 55-inches in all Samsung authorized dealer stores nationwide.
