Can you see what’s in front of you? With dim lights, the answer may be no. According to the Lighting Research Institute, an older retina needs lights that are 2 to 3 times brighter than those comfortable for younger people. Your walls can help increase brightness – have your walls painted and finished with bright or light colors that will reflect the light and brighten the room! The best kind of light is fluorescent lights. They not only help you see better, they help you distinguish between colors better and are environment friendly!
This may seem like a contradiction given the above, but the goal here is not to din the lights, but to prevent glare. Glare happens when the light reflects off too bright and shiny surfaces, causing bright spots of light that can impair your vision. Lights should be covered with light lamp shades or opaque covers and positioned away from shiny surfaces such as linoleum floors or granite countertops. Watch video in link below

As a fail-safe, make sure your floor is clear of falling hazards such as loose rugs, articles on the floor such as shoes, clothing, and short furniture. Even with proper lighting, these articles can be missed and lead to a fall. Also, consider contrasting the furniture with the walls (darker furniture) so they are easier to see.
