We are being moved into another part of our building at work but its had new LED lighting and lots of it. The floor been painted a light Grey and has very light walls. To say its bright in there is an understatment. I really did'nt like it at all and was only in the room a short time. The room was empty at the time but just wondering if my eyes will get used to it or am i going to have problems. Just seem one thing after another at the moment.

Again any advice would be great please.

    I know what you are going through, the glare itself drives me crazy.  I got my boss to loosen some of the bulbs to turn them off.  That way i don't have  a lot of  LED lighting.  If you are working on a computer to help turn down the the lighting on the screen.  i feel your pain.

    Suggest you wear dark glasses and start a trend.  As soon as a few others follow you will find management will quickly replace the LEDs lights with less high intensity lights.  I am expecting the same problem in 10 days when  I move into a newly refurbished building with halogen lights and stark white walls.

    Well, funny that.... I'd welcome bright light. Wherever I go everything seeems dark and gloomy!

    How about wearing good quality light sunglasses?

    It'll work both to give you the protection you need and make a point to the people in charge. It might catch on and become an office fashion!
