Blinding island pendant lights

When I look at pics from those of you with actual dome type pendants I see that most do NOT have diffusers. Am I fussing over nothing? Here are the ones I like:

I don't think diffusers are necessary. I have clear glass lanterns (4 bulbs each) and they're fine. No one is going to stare directly up at the bulbs. I love those pendants ...good luck!

I didn't know there were any lights with diffusers. But I know what you mean about the interrogation lamp. My mil's light over her dining table is like that. And that is also the reason I want a chandelier that has upturned lights instead of downturned.
