  • The silent risk of fluorescent. Lighting is a big part of our everyday life. To the students who are especially prone to lighting sensitivity, it becomes an even bigger concern for the teacher and parents. Often children with vision problems are misdiagnosed with learning disabilities such as ADHD or dyslexia. Conventional fluorescent lighting found in most classrooms today emit significant “flicker,” UVB rays, and UVC rays that are not detectable by the human eye and may advance the onset of cataracts, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and even blindness. This risk not only affects a child’s grades, but more importantly, their neurological and psychological well-being. If a child has to struggle to see clearly, they are going to struggle to learn. Click here to learn more about current research.
