Why Does Lighting Matter?

  1. Adequate lighting is important to improve quality of life and decrease risk for falls

  2. FACT: Older adults need 2-3x more light!

  3. Less light gets to the retina​.  Slower eye reaction to changes in lighting levels, longer time frame for eyes to adjust

  4. Federal regulations are phasing out the use of incandescent light bulbs and moving towards LED light bulbs
