Lighting has historically been designed for visual tasks. This is based on the amount of light entering the eye stimulating 2 photoreceptors, the rods and cones. The discovery of a 3rd photoreceptor, the intrinsically photosensitive Retinal Ganglion Cells or ipRGC has added a new dimension and requirement for lighting designers. Lighting is not only about vision; it is also about human performance, productivity and safety.
