So, feeling ready to switch to halogen and get your share of $18 bln in savings? Eye specialists will surely be celebrating Dec 19 as their second birthday.

OK, I'll bite - what's the link between eye damage and the new light sources that you're implying?

I think he's saying it's too rich in UV. But my halogen lights have a glass plate over the bulb (normal glass is pretty opaque in the UV) and then my glasses are UV coated, so I'm not overly worried.

I thought halogen lights threw off a lot of heat? I remember a lot of dormitories banned them because of fire hazard.

In any case I think eventually LED technology is going to be a significant factor too.

I miss my halogen lamp from college though (it was like a space heater in the winter in my room)
