My husband loves to read. One thing he is worried about is eye fatigue and getting headaches from poor lighting. That is why he prefers we use an incandescent bulb rather than another type. Incandescent bulbs get give an even steady light. I like to use incandescent lights in the dining and bedrooms, places where I can adjust the intensity of the light by just turning a switch. There are many advantages to incandescent bulbs, like disposal, I can just place it in the regular trash and not worry about bio hazards in other type bulbs. Another advantage is there are various styles that I can use for decorations and a much wider range of wattage for the incandescent bulbs.
