This study proposes a model of a light module with an optimized luminous intensity field for realizing an antiglare light-emitting diode (LED) desk lamp without a second optical element. We simulated different luminous intensity field profiles to analyze the unified glare rating (UGR) and illumination uniformity performance of a desk lamp. The spatial effect of UGR and the illumination uniformity affect eye comfort. The light module was set to different beam angles without a second optical

The simulation and experimental results indicated that the luminous intensity curve for a beam angle of 90° achieved an illumination uniformity of 80% and a UGR of 18.1 at a height of 45 cm, thus realizing a human-friendly antiglare desk lamp.
