The most important metric for a lighting product is uniformity of light. Many other metrics are used in the industry, such as lux, foot-candle, colour temperature (kelvin), or horizontal foot-candle — but good uniformity of light will ensure that the presence of shadows in your work environment is kept to a minimum. This will ensure that your eyes do not have to work as much to recalibrate when looking around, which is a leading cause of fatigue.
