WE ALL HAVE DIFFICULTY with low illumination or rapid changes in light
as we age, a result of changes to the pupil muscles. According to the National
Institutes of Health, this is why people in their 60s require three times more
illumination for comfortable reading than those in their 20s. Fast changes to
light intensity, such as seeing headlights or a brilliant reflection from a surface
or window, can cause temporary blindness from what medical professionals
call a veiling reflection. We know that without adequate lighting and use of
contrast throughout the home, your client may not be able to clearly see a
step, furniture, open cabinet door, countertop edge or door frame.

colors or challenges seeing near or far away," suggests Dr. Monique Chabot,
CLIPP, assistant professor of occupational therapy of Philadelphia-based
Thomas Jefferson University. "If there are issues, then it would be appropriate to reach out to an occupational therapist who specializes in low vision
and who can recommend adaptive devices for
everyday use and focus on the appropriate lighting
