Fluorescent Light Problems

There are a lot of fluorescent light problems you might not have previously considered. If you’re suffering from issues such as headaches, eyestrain and fatigue, the lights you spend most of your time under might be part of the reason. Make Great Light makes covers for fluorescent lights that emulate natural, full-spectrum light. These covers deliver the benefits of natural sunlight without dangerous ultraviolet light radiation.

Fluorescent Light ProblemsHuman beings, like all other living things, are meant to be in sunlight – not under harsh fluorescent lights all day. This type of light has a lot of negative impacts on physical as well as mental health. Here are just a few.


There’s a pretty good chance that your eyes are tired and strained after a long day in the office. You might think the only reason is your computer. While computer screens can definitely contribute to eye fatigue, fluorescent lighting can as well. The biggest culprit, of course, is glare. Your screen puts out plenty of it, but so does the lighting that surrounds you.

The eyes and brain aren’t designed to be exposed to fluorescent lighting. Not only does the glare from that lighting contribute to eyestrain, but it could also be a factor if you have to deal with migraines. That glare bounces off of everything around you and goes right into your eyes. You might not know it’s happening, but the stress from glare accumulates day after day, year after year.

Lupus Flare-ups

There are some people who even have worse problems that can be attributed to fluorescent lighting. Those who suffer from lupus are extremely sensitive to this kind of light, and are often more prone to excruciating flare-ups as a result. Part of our sales proceeds go to the National Lupus Foundation, that’s how concerned we are about people with this terrible disease dealing with flare-ups due to fluorescent light.

You might not know that fluorescent lights emit ultraviolet, or UV, radiation, just like the sun. But you can get out of the sun to escape UV rays. There’s no such escape from fluorescent lights. If you have lupus, that UV exposure can cause major problems – just like it can for every other person.

Mood Issues

Your lighting, studies show, can also have a major impact on your mood. It can also negatively impact your energy levels, which can lead to you not being as productive at work as you want to be. Most of us have to work in enclosed spaces every day, and don’t get enough natural light as a result.

Natural lighting balances out those negative impacts, helping you not only see more clearly, but improving your mood as well. When you have more energy, you’re more productive – and you know the benefits that can come with that.
