I would say that is a damn sad story.

You had your eyes removed..
along with the eyes of your entire family..

because of ES bulbs.

Yikes.

what is wrong with you?
the light bulbs caused me and my family, our eyes to water, and we were constantly straining our eyes and crying. as soon as we removed the bulbs everything went back to normal.
i dont know how these lightbulbs work, but hell no

it was before 2 years, and with strained eyes i could still see.
just because your eyes cry doesnt mean they die?

yeah some people do have a hard time with the newer bulbs because the light they put off is a slightly different color than the warm yellow light of the old ones. Im glad i still have a stock of the old yellow ones because the new ones ut off a light blue color that would drive me insane(er).

If you were used to the old ones, the new color probably would make your eyes water..

I am more afraid of lead poisening... the type that comes cruising out of a barrel at 1000+ ft per second.. everything we touch has a problem with it... we have used flourescent lamps forever.. I still have old "silver" fillings in my mouth, too... sorry.... this topic should be mute....

Leaving aside the health hazards of CFLs, I hate them and avoid their use wherever practicable after my initial experiences with them!

They seem to take too long to get to full brightness and that full brightness is nowhere near equivalent to the old incandescant lamps - no matter what the package says! I blame their poor illumination for the sudden deterioration of my reading vision!

You can still get some incandescant bulbs - but only 60W or 40W (useless for anything other than a box room!) - so now I get the halogen-type light bulbs (usually go for the ones that are equivalent to 100W incandescant or more). When they come down in price, I may try the LED bulbs.

The longevity and cost-effectiveness of CF bulbs are based on perfect lab conditions. In actual use, I'm having to replace them just as often (if not sooner) than incandescent bulbs. Plus the lights have an ugly color and can give off a high-pitched whine.

Theyll just be dimmer and make it harder to read,
and probably make your headaches worse..
