Company Info

Sustainable Eye Health Pty Ltd is an Australian company dedicated to the development of new technology for the support of eye-health both throughout life and throughout the world.

In the developed and developing world, our eyes are exposed to new and emerging threats to long term health.

An immediate threat to our vision globally, is that over the past 30-40 years, myopia (short-sightedness) has increased 300% country to country on average. In some eastern Asian countries, 95% of university graduates are short-sighted.

Research conducted by the Brien Holden Vision Institute (2015) revealed that by 2050, half the world’s population will be myopic. For some, this can mean blindness in later years of life. Sustainable Eye health has developed a solution: Lightsafe (patent pending), a novel form of processor controlled LED illumination, offers a significant reduction in risk of myopia by strategic choices of wavelength, brightness and duration of luminance.

Sustainable Eye Health has also developed innovative modifications to LED lighting that removes the risk of potentially long term retinal damage from ‘high-energy-visible’ light (HEV) incorporated in to its Lightsafe products. This addresses the so-called ‘blue-light hazard’ now more commonly being referred to in the literature as of potential long-term concern for eye health as we switch to LED lighting to save energy.

HEV is typically found in LED lighting but can be safely removed to provide the same ‘white light’ experience we enjoy for indoor illumination but without hazardous HEV.
