Onyx BOOX Highlights the Benefits of Front Light

Scientists with the Harvard School of Public Health conducted experiments on human retinal cells. The study shows that compared with backlight, front light is two to three times more eye-friendly.

Onyx BOOX, a company that specializes in ePaper tablets and monitors, equipped all their products with front lights. Behind this feature is Onyx BOOX’s desire to offer consumers eye-friendly productivity tools that can be used anytime anywhere.

There are two types of light generated from electronic products: backlight and front light. While they are both designed to enhance content visibility, backlight from smartphones and TVs shoots right straight into the eyes and emits more blue light; on the contrary, front light of ePaper devices is reflected from the screen just like the ambient light is, softer and milder.


Unlike conventional electronic products with LCD screens, eye protection has always been a key part of Onyx BOOX’s brand DNA. Users could relish a pen-to-paper experience with gentle light on BOOX tablets, getting far away from bothering eye fatigue.

According to feedback from consumers, Onyx BOOX found that users sometimes need to work or study in poor-lit spaces. With front light, they could use their E Ink tablets in a wider range of places without worrying about the lack of lighting.

In addition, Onyx BOOX emphasized that to satisfy different needs, the brightness of their dual-color front light could be adjusted in the control center. Every user could set the light to the level they feel most comfortable with.

Use cases during nighttime have been Onyx BOOX’s another major focus. Front light enables consumers to read in a dimly-lit bedroom. More importantly, front-lit devices have minimal disruption to sleep quality, as they generate far less blue light, which is known to inhibit the production of sleep-inducing melatonin.


In today’s digital age, e-products assist us with work and study, and some infuse lots of fun into daily life. Reducing screen time is a challenge, but self-improvement and recreation should not come at the price of health. E Ink devices with front light offer a solution to this dilemma.
