Frequently Asked Questions Is the flashing light of my Philips Lumea safe for my eyes? Philips Lumea has been built keeping your safety in mind and does not hurt your eyes. Harmless to your eyes Philips Lumea has a built-in feature which prevents it from flashing in the air. This means that the Lumea only flashes when it is in full contact with your skin. The scattered light produced by Lumea is harmless to your eyes. However, we strongly advise not to look directly at the flashlight and to not use Lumea in the area around your eyes. Should I wear goggles while using Philips Lumea? It is not necessary to wear any glasses or safety goggles while using Lumea. We recommend using Lumea in a well-lit room. This helps to reduce the perceived brightness of its flash.
