I HAVE A BIG PROBLEM !!!!
Ever since I have installed my LED lighting (21x3Watt white and royal blue leds) My visual focus is a bit strange....I feel like my eyes are always tired...this effect is over after about 2 hours after I stop looking at the tank.
I have to mention that I never in my life had any problems with my eyes...I still have crystal clear eye sight, I`m 25 years old and this experience started for the first time ever in my life after I installed this LED light system.
Atm I`m using 20% of the led power 4-5 hours/day but even on higher led power I still have the same problem.
A friend of mine that sold me the LED system had it like 3-4 months and he didn`t experience any problem.....
My guess is this:
I am either sensible to this spectrum
I get my eyes tired because of the shimmering effect that occurs because I have powerful water movement on the surface
It-s just a matter of getting used to this kind of light.
I cannot change LED light with fluorescent because of the heat in the hood (I have no problems in looking on fluorescent light systems)
Metal Hallide is not an option since it-s tons of heat and I have no chiller.
Please if anyone has experienced this or has any idea please help me I am on the edge of quiting because of this....
