Bargary et al compared normal participants with high and low discomfort glare
thresholds while they identified the orientation of a Landolt C surrounded by peripheral sources of glare.
New and different criteria--such as brightness, circadian stimulation, discomfort glare
, dynamic properties, movement and color saturation--are often much more useful in telling us how well the lighting achieves our goals in a certain context.
Its low reflection design helps to reduce discomfort glare

The 'Adaptive Zone'--a Concept for Assessing Discomfort Glare
Throughout Daylit Spaces.
reduces the contrast of visibility of the object being viewed, while intense glare can lead to temporary vision impairment.
It's important to mention that the major factor affecting discomfort glare
sensation is high source luminance [Chauvel and others 1982; Chauvel and Perraudeau 1995; Nazzal and Oki 2007].
In the case of excessively high luminance contrast or glass (mirror) surfaces in industrial buildings or working with computers, disability or discomfort glare
either fixed or free) does not significantly impact perceptions of discomfort glare
in the context of oncoming headlamps (Bullough et al.
Lighting engineers make a distinction between discomfort glare
, which may not necessarily affect visual performance, and disability glare, which does.
The subjective sensation of discomfort referred to as discomfort glare
is determined subjectively, primarily by rating scales.
Cut veiling reflections, particularly through more indirect light distribution, and get rid of discomfort glare
