Some details of artificial lighting arrangement in apartments

Artificial lighting differs from daylight by the wavelength of its spectrum and is not able to substitute natural lighting. Unlike sunlight that is purely neutral, artificial light - whether it is radiation of incandescent filament of light bulbs, fluorescent lamps with glowing gas or burning wick candles – it is always characterized by one or another coloration.

Incorrect using of artificial lighting has negative impact on human eyesight to a greater extent than natural lighting. Inadequate illumination distracts and causes fatigue, while excessive leads to eyestrain. Children, the elderly and people with weak or defective eyesight are particulary sensitive to bad lighting. Permanent dwellings with inadequate lighting promotes myopia in children and its progression in adults, impairs adaptation properties of eyesight. Too bright and abundant artificial lighting leads to over excitement, can cause irritability, headaches, and in people with poor eyesight - itchy eyes, watery eyes and increased intraocular pressure.
