Bright or Dull Lighting?

Which is more advised when typing or when exposed to computers?

Hi Abraham,

When it comes to lighting your work space, remember that brighter is not always better. Bright overhead lighting can “wash out” images on your screen. Task lighting, window blinds and shades, light diffusers, removing bulbs to reduce brightness, and other lighting adjustments can all help tone down light that’s too bright.

Hello, @abrahamboyle!

As with any physical movement, too much can cause strain. While you shouldn’t be typing long enough to cause issues, there are a few ways to manipulate light to your benefit. If you’re a glasses-wearer, look into blue light filtering lenses. You can also find special brightness settings on many devices - look to lower the brightness, switch to “night” or “dark” mode, and use a blue light filter when possible.

Stay safe!
