Provide Low Light

Modern lights flicker at rapid speeds causing the eyes to adjust constantly. Technology in the classroom additionally increases lighting for active whiteboards and other screens. Blue lights from these screens further may cause damage to the eyes over time. Keeping the lights low help to reduce eye fatigue and headaches. Three tips to use low light include:

  1. Turn out some lights (if applicable) to reduce the amount of light exposure. 
  2. Place a colored cloth on the lights to change the color variation. 
  3. Add full spectrum/dynamic lamps in the room or change the fluorescent ones.
