Study Lights

Many of like to settle down comfortably in some favorite corner of the house and spend some time reading books or magazines we love. All of us have some reading and writing to do at some point of time. These two activities put a strain on our eyes and thus what is needed is proper lighting to reduce the strain. Adequate desk lighting is a must for students for long hours of night study. Here are a few tips on how the lighting should be while studying, writing or working on a computer:

  • Lighting should be bright and must be focused on to the area where you are working.
  • Use task lighting as it is focused and does not create any shadows. This lighting illuminates only the work surface like the study table.
  • Use halogen bulbs as experts consider them the best to illuminate reading material.
  • Using fluorescent bulbs is better than using incandescent bulbs. Fluorescent bulbs last longer, save electricity and are now available in a variety of colors.
  • Right-handed individuals should place the light on their left hand side and vice versa. This is to ensure that the shadow of the hand does not fall the pages.
  • You should sit upright and read with the material at a distance of about 14 to 18 inches away from the eyes.
  • For long night study one should choose glare-free task lighting.
  • As an individual grows older his eyes become weaker. Thus older people need more light for reading and writing
