due to renovation work, I’ll soon have to move into a new, much bigger office with lots of overhead lights. The move is temporary (for the next 6 months or so), but cannot be avoided. Since I’m only a trainee I cannot reasonably ask them to buy desk lamps for all of the roughly 30 desks in the new office.
Do any of you have any tips on how I could deal with sitting in overhead light for several hours a day? Have tinted glasses worked for you?
I already manage my screen brightness and colour composition with f.lux. Also, I can work from home on some days, but I do have to be at the office most days of the week.
I’ve become truly hypersensitive to light over the last year and currently most of my migraines are triggered by light. Even spending an hour in a meeting room with overhead lights can easily trigger an attack. I’ve just been prescribed anti-epileptics in the hope of reducing the frequency of attacks and the thought of having to spend several hours a day in overhead light is frankly very discouraging. 🙁
Any advice is appreciated!
