Medical Headlight: What Is the Best & Brightest LED Medical Headlamp

The Sunoptic Difference: Medical Headlights That Are Lighting the Way in the Medical Industry

A Brief History of the Medical Headlight

vintage medical headlight

The earliest operating rooms used to favor southeast exposures and, when possible, had ceiling windows to benefit from sunlight, which was the only available light source, and a veritable challenge for surgeons even on a sunny day. 

By the end of the 19th century, light bulbs replaced direct sunlight and gave surgeons the freedom to perform surgery any time of day. 

Halogen bulbs appeared in the 1960s and these increased the amount of light available on the operating table to 100,000 lx compared to its 19th-century predecessor.  

The LED Medical Headlight Revolutionizes Medical Lighting

Three decades later, discharge lamps practically doubled the available light to 200,000 lx.  However, more is not always better. In fact, the increase in the amount of light being used, in operating rooms, led to eye fatigue and decreased surgeons’ effectiveness. 

We’ve come a long way since the invention of the electric lightbulb. 

Today, more and more surgical lights operate with LEDs. These bulbs use less energy and produce crisper, cooler illumination, however, not all LEDs are created equally.
