Workers need plenty of light in order to work. A good task light should provide the right amount of glare-free light and be easy to move, depending on the individual requirements of the worker. Many office workers today complain of Computer Vision Syndrome, which causes eyestrain and headaches. As computers and tablets are backlit, our eyes need more light to balance the contrast between the screen and the ambient light around our desks. Modern task lights combine quality light with individual control which allows workers to direct light away from their eyes and reflective surfaces to avoid glare. 

Strategies and tips!

  • Lighting a desk from the side helps to avoid glare, reflections and shadows
  • Adjust the brightness and colour temperature of computer screens to sync with natural daylight
  • Take regular breaks when working with computers to rest you eyes
