Importance of Task Lighting

It’s time to head back to school! Have you considered how good task lighting can help extend reading and study time?

The most important lighting as far as your eyes go, would be task lighting. Lighting for a room is good, but if you’re looking to read something or do something in your hands, task lighting will shine directly on what you’re looking at and make it much more comfortable for your eyes. Task lighting can include desk lamps, track lighting, and work lamps.

Poor lighting doesn’t hurt your eyes or cause damage, but it will tire the eyes out much quicker and could cause uncomfortable eyestrain. Poor lighting is harder on your eye muscles because your eyes have to work much harder than if they had proper lighting. With good lighting you can read or do whatever task you’re doing longer and more comfortably.
