Forty-two older adults participated in a study that examined the impact of a task-lighting intervention on visual performance and quality of life. Task lighting significantly improved reading (reading acuity, reading speed, critical print size) and quality of life for near visual activities and role performance but not for psychosocial well-being. OTs can promote productive aging for community-based older adults with a low-cost, environmental task-lighting modification.
