Color of the walls aside, putting those round track-lights right within eye-line is just going to burn holes in the crew's retinas. The only purpose they serve is lens-flare generation.
As you can see in the second photo, the lights point down at the horizontal "desktop" surface of the consoles, not in anyone's eyes.

What we see onscreen with the camera trickery and lighting adjustments is not indicative of what the bridge would be like for someone standing on it. The lights would be much more subdued.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
