It's the same kind of light from those car headlights you see where you get an instant headache just passing by one, you know?
The ones that give me headaches are the xenon headlights. I didn't know they made LED headlights. Those probably would give me a headache too!
My dh brought an LED home (probably from the university, I'm not sure where he got it, but it wasn't for keeps anyway) and I actually was O.K. with the lighting. Maybe it depends on the lamp shade you are using. We had it in the lamp only for an evening, but I liked it better than the CFLs.
And another thing I didn't mention in my earlier post... CFL and any florescent light also triggers my rosacea... and they make my rosacea look worse - people without rosacea look red in the face, let alone those with the condition. Ugh.
