As you’ve gotten older have you began to notice a change in your vision? Most people begin having trouble seeing long distances when they reach the age of 45. By the time the age of 60 is reached, changes in visual system have accelerated allowing less light to reach your eyes. This is when additional lighting is needed to perform daily tasks. A 60 year old needs twice the amount of light than most lighting guidelines recommend because they are written for 3o year olds.
To help reduce eye fatigue and to combat glares special areas of task lighting should be set up throughout your home. The simple addition of a few table lamps aide in reducing the contrast when watching TV, while dimmers allow you customize lighting as needed. Having flexible lighting will allow you to have optimal and comfortable lighting conditions for any given task.
