Michael Berman, one of our manager/lighting experts, was interviewed by the St. Petersburg Times about lighting for elderly readers. In the article, Michael says that a good reading lamp should do three things:

  • Reduce peripheral shadow around the reading area to reduce eye fatigue.
  • Provide good illumination, but not too much.
  • Eliminate squinting.

Michael always has great ideas on lighting and decor. You can read the full article here: St. Petersburg Times reading light article.
