THESE days, many children are wearing spectacles. According to Lighting Ergonomics, lighting flicker and insufficient brightness are one of the reasons.

What is lighting flicker?

It is repetitive fluctuation in light intensity or brightness exhibited by most fluorescent lamps in Malaysia due to the input of our alternating power supply.

With the Malaysian power system alternating at 50Hz or cycles per second, most fluorescent lamps will exhibit an intensity fluctuation at a frequency of 100 cycles per second.

Working under this lighting condition, eyes will automatically adapt to the split change in light by enlarging and constricting the pupils along with each flicker.

Prolonged exposure to these lighting flickers may cause eye fatigues resulting in short-sightedness or migraine. This is particularly true for children.
