Lighting Guide Kit
This kit includes the Better Vision Lamp and the large print booklet What Teachers of Students With Visual Impairments Need to Know about Lighting. A braille edition of the booklet is available separately.
The booklet gives teachers, administrators, parents, and practitioners the information needed to make decisions about lighting to make their student or child as productive and comfortable as possible. This short, easy-to-read book presents information, based upon the latest research, about light and its physical properties. It shows consumers how to judge what kind of light is best for a given student or situation. Vivid photographs show examples and help convey meaning.
The Better Vision Lamp was specially developed by an inventor and APH staff in order to provide the best light possible for students with visual impairments. This energy-saving lamp gives off light that doesn't cause photo stress in most people with retinal, corneal or lens disease/injury, or cortical visual impairment. Lamp uses a special 27 watt, 2700K, compact fluorescent tube which emits no blue or ultraviolet light.
NOTE: The Better Vision Lamp is not available separately.
