Adjust for Maximum Comfort
How much light you need depends on many factors – your vision, age, other light sources available.
Pupils are the gatekeepers of light and work to control the amount of light that enters our eye. We can get headaches or eyestrain from too little or too much light. Too little light makes our eye muscles work harder to form an image on our retina. Too much light, over-saturates our cones or rods which causes glare.
Additionally, as we age, the structures in our eyes do not respond to light as quickly or as well compared to when we are young. To see sharp details well, someone age 60 needs about two to three times the amount of light, and someone in their 80s would need five times the amount that is required by a 20-year old.
With OttLite LED lamps, you can choose the brightness setting that works best for you. And, the flexible necks let you direct the light where you need it.
Plus, our diffusers are specially created to disperse the light evenly – no hotspots and greatly reduced glare!
