Lili is perfect for healthcare environments where discomfort glare
is unwanted by patients but a 50,000-hour sustainable lighting solution is needed.
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].

While both disabilty and discomfort glare
do affect driver performance, their effects are more indirect and are relative to the age of the driver.
In addition to the successful IES Research Symposium entitled "Light + Seniors," we are now preparing two draft RFPs: chronospectural, spectral sensitivities and their impact on circadian rhythms; and discomfort glare
from vertical windows and mitigation strategies.
The electronic office introduced in the 1980s brought new concerns in lighting design [Blehm and others 2005], mainly the prevention of disability and discomfort glare
in VDT operators [Osterhaus 1993].
The window is typically a source of discomfort glare
due to the brightness of either the backlit shading system itself or direct views of the sun or sky through the window.
