Light comfort in the room is characterized by the conditions of visual work, which are determined by the levels of illumination of the workplace and the saturation of the entire room with light. The related problems were solved mainly for artificial illumination. The article examines the results of research in our country and abroad by determining the criterion for the comfort of lighting rooms with artificial and natural light. It is pointed out that such studies are obviously insufficient, and suggestions are given on their development.
