Diffused are better for eyes in creatures because the light is softer, they are more like a light bulb with light going in all directions. Regular LEDs are like little flashlights often in their technical info they give a degree amount, like 30 degrees or so. Diffused LED's put out light 360 degrees.
So better not really, just different.
Glad I could help....if I did.

I use the diffusers on my white and blue leds. It helps a lot if the room is kinda small. But on the other colors it seems to reduce the light output too much.
