Questions about Fluorescent Light Covers
A: One of the most common reasons customers purchase our NaturaLux fluorescent light filters is because their existing lighting is too bright. Overly bright lighting causes glare, and glare causes headaches, eyestrain, visual fatigue and blurred vision. NaturaLux filters only reduce light output by 20%, allowing 80% of the light through. By reducing the over-abundance (20%) of light, the glare is eliminated.

A: Yes, the same properties apply to both fluorescent and LED lighting issues. Most of the time, the light cover can be trimmed to fit an LED light. View our LED light filters.
A: Our fluorescent light panels eliminate 100% of UV up to 380nm, up to 99% up to 390nm, and up to 80% up to 400nm. Many customers with UV sensitivity have told us that they can easily work under the filtered light for an entire shift with no effects from the UV rays.
A: These covers for fluorescent lights are designed for most common recessed light fixture. If your light fixture is flush with the ceiling, such as a parabolic or prismatic, you should be covered. The overlay light filters are over-sized and can be trimmed to fit.
A. Fluorescent light covers help mitigate some of the negative side affects of working under fluorescent light for a prolonged period of time. However, not all light covers are created equal. You need fluorescent light covers that have filtering capability to truly transform the light.
A. NaturaLux light filters are clean and professional looking. Our filters don’t have fancy, distracting designs. They just make better light. Are decorative light covers a good solution for a professional setting? We don’t think so. If you are spending the money to update the ceiling light panels, you should invest in fluorescent light covers that actually change the light output.

Fluorescent Light Issues
Anyone who’s spent long hours working under fluorescent lights knows how hard they can be on your health and well-being.
Fluorescent lights are proven culprits in causing eye disease, sleep disruption, increased rates of cancer, a suppressed immune system, and a host of other ailments.
Workers who spend prolonged hours bathed in the harsh rays of these lights often suffer from bad moods, lack of focus, headaches, and eyestrain.
And yet, many offices, workplaces, classrooms, and other environments have yet to make the change to more life-affirming lighting sources.
What Fluorescent Life Looks Like
You’re probably one of the millions of people that spend all day in an office, classroom, or other environment being saturated with fluorescent light. Exposure of this magnitude has real, measurable impacts on your quality of life.
Let’s examine a few ways this harsh light breaks down your health.
Blue Light and Eye Health
Over long periods of time, exposure to blue light, like the kind generated by fluorescent lights, can cause age-related macular degeneration as well as eyestrain and headaches.
The blue light damages retinal cells, leading to a breakdown of visual health.
Fluorescent light, Mood, and Diabetes
Cortisol levels plummet under exposure to artificial lighting, and our moods plummet with them. Low cortisol equals higher stress, as well as a lowered immune reaction.
Along with low cortisol, fluorescent light exposure also causes blood sugar levels to increase and the release of leptin, a hormone that helps you feel full, to plummet.
These findings lead researchers to correlate habitual subjection to this kind of light source with a rise in obesity and diabetes.
Sleep and Fluorescent Light
Artificial light also interrupts your natural sleep cycle, called your circadian rhythm, by disrupting your sleep hormones — melatonin and serotonin.
When these substances are lowered, people have more difficulty falling — and staying — asleep at night.
Studies have proven that the more artificial light exposure you get, the harder it will be to have a normal sleep schedule.
What You Can Expect from Using a Fluorescent Light Filter Cover
Changing your light source seems important, but full-spectrum lights on the market are very expensive. Plus, your office manager may not want you to change out the office’s standard bulbs due to liability.
Additionally, full-spectrum bulbs need to be replaced and they still contribute to glare in an indoor-setting, which is detrimental to the health of your eyes.
Enter the fluorescent light filter cover — a simple, inexpensive, effective way to bring full-spectrum light back into your life and remove glare and UV. These lightweight lighting covers not only provide health-giving full-spectrum light, but they minimize glare and are UV-free for maximum protection.
Natural, healing sleep
Working under full-spectrum lighting generated by fluorescent light covers can help you produce the hormones that regulate sleep, letting you ease back into to a natural Circadian rhythm that’s healing to your body and your mind.
A boost of happiness
People who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) will notice a boost in mood after working under these lighting covers, since it’s comparable to being in mood-boosting natural sunlight all day long.
Fewer headaches and eyestrain
Plus, these covers reduce overall glare, which is proven to cause eyestrain and headaches. People working under the protection of fluorescent light filters will notice less burning, straining, tired eyes, and headaches.
These covers will allow you to produce the hormones that regulate mood, sleep, blood sugar, and hunger — contributing to overall physical health and a boost in disease resistance.
How to make fluorescent light covers
- First, attempting to make your own covers for fluorescent lights can be dangerous depending on the material used. Think fire safety.
- To fight the glare that causes headaches and eyestrain, order a fluorescent light cover. Make Great Light sells the best
- Installation is easy. Remove the door to the fixture and measure. Transfer the measurement to the light cover and cut with a utility knife and straight edge
- Tape into place and close the door.
Can you paint fluorescent light covers?
Painting fluorescent light covers to change the mood is not recommended. One must think of the type of paint and the potential heat from the lighting. If you are looking to increase the quality of the harsh lighting, use fluorescent light filters which can create natural light.
