GlareA recent study showed that most visually impaired participants required a higher degree of brightness in order to be able to  see the images they were presented on a monitor.  Surprisingly, though, about 25% actually saw better with lower brightness.  Most people had better vision with lower glare, and with more uniform lighting.  Also, visually impaired people did better with a higher degree of contrast between foreground and background colors.
