Lighting proves a fundamental element as far as the healthcare hospital environment is concerned: illumination quality, both in terms of colorimetry and photometry or light distribution, is a key factor in scialytic lamps as it can allow doc-tors the possibility to operate according to the expected range of accuracy and precision.
It is essential to grant the operator the vision comfort needed to prevent weariness and enhance safe usage over time. Qua-lity scialytic lamps are expected to perform not only as far as color rendering – especially when it comes to blood tissue color – but also in terms of enhancing light distribution over a surface to prevent sudden light intensity variation which can cause eye fatigue due to the vision adaptation it requires.
Besides spacing, also the energy time flux has to be taken into account to avoid flickering and fluctuations due to the partial darkening that a doctor may cause from her working position. To prevent this problemissue, the scialytic effect has to be optimized by increasing the number of emission zones.
