Lighting the home office
Members of the Council’s SEE TO WORK® Program stress the importance of creating a good work environment in your home and office.
Work toward a well-lit office
- Encourages good posture and good eyesight. Overall room lighting should be supplemented with a 100-watt shaded bulb for the desk.
- Older people should use brighter bulbs or move closer to the light when reading or working at a desk because their pupils become smaller with age and are less adaptable to light changes.
- Don’t forget that intense, continual concentration on a book or computer is stressful to your eyes.
- Take regular breaks and use your eyes another way.
