Flicker-free T8 LED Tubes for Vision Therapy Office Lighting
We are a vision therapy institute that sees patients recovering from traumatic brain injury. One of the symptoms of post-traumatic vision syndrome is an extreme sensitivity to light. Our office has regular fluorescent ballasts. We're looking for a solution with a lower flicker rate and a warmer color temperature. Will purchasing your T8 tubes solve for our flicker rate issues or will we see flicker at the same rate as the current fluorescents?
Based on the details provided, we might recommend our 4000K CENTRIC DAYLIGHT™ Full Spectrum Flicker-Free T8 LED Tube Light product for your office installation.
While we can confirm that this product offers flicker-free performance, it might be helpful to know that some tube light fixtures contain pre-installed ballasts which are incompatible. When these products are installed within fixtures that may have not been designed for LED products, they are more likely to exhibit compatibility issues.
However, we do offer an illustrated guide to the alternative ballast-bypass installation methods, as well as a guide for the ballasts which have been tested for compatibility. For your reference, we have included both links below.
