Evidence demonstrating the impact of light on human biological and behavioral health is well documented. Research also shows that the aging eye allows less light to enter, and a yellowing lens reduces blue light, which may negatively affect the circadian system. However, the aging eye is also very susceptible to glare, particularly from cooler white light sources. This paradox may explain why the elderly are most likely to have circadian dysfunction, which can lead to acceleration of cognitive decline. This webinar will address the science behind circadian lighting; explore strategies to evaluate, design, and implement an effective circadian lighting system for the aging; and present potential benefits.


Learning Objectives

  • Explore the basics of the circadian system and unique challenges of the aging eye.

  • Understand impacts of circadian dysfunction in the elderly and their design implications.

  • Learn circadian lighting design and implementation strategies for the aging population.

  • Explore potential benefits of circadian lighting design for the elderly.


Presenting Faculty

Lisa Bartlett, IALD, RA, NCIDQ, LEED AP, EDAC, Senior LIghting Designer, Davis Partnership Architects

With over 20 years of experience, Lisa Bartlett is an award-winning architectural lighting designer passionate about creating spaces that support wellness.
