My new desk lamp came equipped with one of those new supposedly environmentally-friendly light bulbs, you know the fluorescent kind that will be mandated in a few years. Well, maybe they may be environmentally friendly, but they’re not eye-friendly. It creates an odd glare which makes it more challenging to read my computer screen.
At first, I thought it was my eyes, then later my computer screen, but when I realized I had no trouble reading the screen when I looked at it in different light, assumed it was the bulb; I hadn’t had the problem with my old lamp.
Since the plastic on my lamp started to melt when I put in a regular bulb, looks like I’ll need a new desk lamp. When I pick that up, I’ll definitely be stocking up on those standard bulbs soon to be banned.
Has anyone else had such an experience with the new bulbs?
