Why Skylights? — Better Lighting Helps with Aging Comfortably
As we grow older our eye lenses thicken while our pupils shrink, making it more difficult for our eyes to adapt to changing and low light environments. Medical studies also show that our ability to adapt to different light levels falls off considerably around age 60, which seems associated with changes in the retina sensitivity.
The level of dark adaptation exhibits a clearly noticeable alteration in individuals above 60 years.
