Can LED Grow Lights Cause Blindness?

I recently bought an LED grow light for my succulents, but I've heard a few things about the potential risks of LED lighting for the eyes, especially as it relates to UV and blue light. I'm worried about the possibility of blindness if I turn on the light for 12 hours a day.

No, using LED grow lights won’t make you blind.

These lights don’t generate a light intensity that would be harmful to human vision. They are exclusively designed for plant cultivation. In fact, compared to traditional lighting, LED grow lights emit light at a far lower intensity.

Nevertheless, it’s better to avoid staring at LED grow lights for an extended amount of time as this may be uncomfortable and even strain your eyes.
