Abstract:

This paper researches the factors of illumination, age and task design and their effects on visual performance. An experimental design is developed to show that people in older age brackets 40 to 50 years of age can perform visual tasks, under high illumination levels, as well as people in younger age brackets 20 to 30 years of age but as the illumination level decreases, task performances drop.
