Light the Way

Lighting is an important element of visually impaired people’s surroundings – so you might be surprised at how many of these patients regularly deal with low light levels or uneven lighting that leaves areas of their homes in shadow. To support those patients, their families, and the professionals who work with or care for them, the Thomas Pocklington Trust – a UK-based charity dedicated to improving visually impaired people’s quality of life – has published a guide to “Lighting in and around the home” (1). In this comprehensive publication, Peter Hodgson, the Trust’s Lighting Consultant, and Peter Raynham, Professor of the Lit Environment at University College London, UK, outline the benefits of good lighting, explore the range of available lighting options, and examine best practices in lighting various rooms. The guide is available online as a free resource.

About the Author
Aleksandra Jones

Editor of The Ophthalmologist

Having edited several technical publications over the last decade, I crossed paths with quite a few of Texere's current team members, and I only ever heard them sing the company's praises. When an opportunity arose to join Texere, I jumped at the chance! With a background in literature, I love the company's ethos of producing genuinely engaging content, and the fact that it is so well received by our readers makes it even more rewarding.
