Peacesoul, Lights bother me of all kinds because my eyes are affected by something and very sensitive to light, as well as my sun sensitivity which, depending on the health of my liver, can get really really bad. I raise fish and have lots of aquariums and have found that the bulbs that are combined with actinic light do not bother me nearly so bad, and in fact are soothing. I wonder if there are any studies on actinic light (moonlight--blue/purple spectrum) and sun sensitivity? They now make many differnt size screw in bulbs for older incandesccent fixtures that contain various percentages of actinic light at the pet stores, for reptiles and ome other creatures and for fsh. I light my house with aquarium bulbs. They seem to work fine. The 100% actinic looks like a blacklight almost, but there are some blended bulbs that are brighter and tolerable for me. It seems to be a percentage thing with me, once I get over acertain percentage of sunlght I can't metabolize it.
I hope you can get through to your employers. I hated those bulb and used to turn them off when I worked nights and brought a lamp witha shade. I don't know what leds do, they are used to emulate moonlight as well.
