Discomfort glare is caused by direct glare from luminaires that are too bright, inadequately shielded or too large in size. It is also caused by reflected glare from specular surfaces lit by other sources, which in a stadium may be the sun.

When the eye has become used to the dark, it is particularly susceptible to impairment and depression of central vision when a bright light enters the field of vision.
