intensity of led varries considerable based on a multitude of factor if you happen to know all of them then yes otherwise no.

"Luminous flux refers to the
total light available from an LED and it is measured in
lumens (lm). This amount varies according to the
LEDâ€™s color, and depends on the current density the
LED die can manage. Package properties also limit
the electrical current that can be safely driven through
LED assemblies. The more current an LED device
can handle, the more luminous flux it will produce. At
this time, small-signal white LEDs can produce
approximately 2-4 lm in a 5-mm package when driven
at 20-30 mA. Power-packaged white LEDs can produce
25-120 lm when driven at 350-1000 mA."

Not all seven segment display are LED some are LCD which of course makes a difference as well

"LCD do not produce light themselves but selectively block light from source behind the display
"LCD crystals do not produce their own light, so an external light source, such as florescent bulb is needed for the image created by the LCD..."
