As our population continues to age so do our eyes. The visual requirements of older persons are much different than the younger population. Increased light levels, attention to contrast, detail and the healing attributes of lighting are all important factors in designing lighting for the elderly. This presentation will identify ways in which the eye ages, common diseases and what we can do with lighting as a tool in designing for the aging eye.


  1. Understand the terminology and physical factors of the eye.
  2. Describe the phases of the aging eye and common diseases.
  3. Look at lighting solutions where lighting can be used as a tool when designing for the elderly.
  4. Describe evidence based research on lighting that can improve human health.
