Light 4-6 ft away from a patient , as is the case with typical wall mount or ceiling mounted surgical lighting, has to have many properties that light millimeters away from the site doesn’t.
Imagine placing a large search light (the type that projects into the sky) , in your closet to find a small piece of jewelry. Just wouldn’t work, aside from blinding you, it would wash out the entire closet out with light making it impossible to see any fine details or items like small pieces of jewelry.
Same premise with a surgical site. The power of the light is not the critical issue, the distance the light source is from the surgical site is. Lumohs, a small fine targeted light is all that is needed when a few millimeters from target tissue. Every detail , including tumor margins, nerves, vessels, adipose, dermis, epidermis is visually enhanced simply by the proximity of the light source to the tissue.
