Life can be better under filtered fluorescent light


Over the years that I worked in a sprawling room crammed with desks Learned to deal with the constant noise and chatter going on around me, sometime by donning a set of headphones. What I never quite adjusted to was the harsh glare from the miles of fluorescent lights in ceiling above me.

I suppose there were no alternatives in those days beyond disconnecting some of the bulbs. Today, there are filters like those sold by Make Great Light that can customize and adjust fluorescent lighting to create a more pleasant and productive environment.

The company sells both tubes and panels that will filter out harmful UV rays and turn harsh bright lighting into full spectrum light.

People who work and live in full-spectrum natural light are less likely to encounter health issues such as depression or seasonal affective disorder. Experts say natural light also reduces stress and anxiety and problems caused by sleep disruption.

Unlike expensive full-spectrum bulbs, the fluorescent light filters can be used with standard fluorescent bulbs. The tubes slip over the bulbs and can be reused when a bulb is replaced. The filter sheets can be cut to lay over clear plastic panels that cover bare bulbs.  Both are designed to function as filters for office lighting and as classroom light filters.
