[Perspectives] Everything is illuminated

Although light permeates and sustains our lives, it rarely intrudes on clinical consciousness. This is despite our discourse that is rich in luminary references, such as shedding light on a challenging diagnosis, and an increasing awareness of the therapeutic value of daylight, including the nature of views from windows, in clinical settings. The positive impact of light is multifactorial in nature, drawing not only on psychophysical aspects such as circadian rhythms but also on important but underappreciated elements of wellbeing such as aesthetics.
