Glare Sensitivity (2A)
Glare is caused by the reflection off a white page or computer screen from fluorescent overhead lights or other direct light. Glare sensitivity can result in visual distortion, eye strain, and headaches and as such, impacts a student's ability to concentrate and work on academic activities.
