An LED panel lamp is presented for general indoor illumination. This lamp consists of arrayed LED light sources with each LED united with an evening lens so that the Lambertian distribution of LED light is altered, and the illuminance on a target plane can be uniform. The computer simulation result shows that the illuminance uniformity is 0.737, and the maximum illuminance is 140 lx on a detecting screen at 1.5 m away.
