Lighting Design and Eyesight Problems
Visioncall understands the importance of lighting for care homes and it’s even more important when caring for people with eyesight problems. When designing residences for older people and those with dementia, it has to be understood that vision is often at best reduced and frequently severely impaired. When advising on lighting design for elderly home care on any scale, Visioncall always considers:
Good lighting and advanced ergonomic design go together in care homes and make the difference between seeing, potential risk and the patient understanding their own surroundings.
During any domiciliary visit, Visioncall optometrists and dispensing opticians always consider the lighting of the environment around the patient.
