Remember lighting matters. Use focused lighting for projects and reading. The lamp should be placed behind your shoulder and focus on your work.

Reduce glare. Use window shades or blinds to block out harsh sunlight. Do not face the window. Move your chair or table so your back is to the window or light source. 

High contrast helps. Keep light and dark items or surfaces next to each other. For example, if your table is white, buy dark colored dishes.  If the table and dishes are white or pastel, use a dark place mat.

Remove small area or throw rugs. They can be tripping hazards.

Remember to wear sunglasses, even in winter. Unprotected eyes may be more prone to certain eye diseases.
