Fluorescent lighting is hard on the eyes too. HA HA this is so (((Subliminal))). . . I will never forget Tom Hanks in the movie "Joe Verses The Volcano." He worked in a small office (with no windows) and he told his uncaring boss (a jerk) just before he quit - "the fluorescent lighting is sucking the life out of me."
At home, most of the bulbs I use are compact fluorescents. I use them to cut cost on my electrical bill. A 9 watt C/F bulb is the equivalent of a conventional 60 watt incandescent bulb. I use them but, I do prefer incandescent lighting.
