As per the studies, at 60 we need twice the light to read than we needed when we were 30. Thus, while choosing a reading light, make sure that it provides you with adequate lighting.

Placing the Light- Once you have purchased the reading light, make sure that you install it in such a way that the light falls on your right shoulder if you are left handed and on your left shoulder if you are right handed. This will eliminate the problem of your hands overshadowing the words while reading.
  3. Use Dimmer- It is a perfect tool to easily control the level of light while reading. You can adjust it as per the things you are reading, for instance, brighter light while studying and a calmer light when reading a novel.

It is very important to have adequate lighting while reading as poor lighting can damage your eyes. We hope that these tips are able to help you out and enhance your reading experience.
