Recessed lighting


Can I change out eyeball light trim for recessed light trim without having to change out the entire lighting system? I purchased screw in pendant lights and they will not meet flush with the ceiling because of the eyeball feature. I didn't realize that the edging and the eyeball "socket" are all one piece. I thought I could remove the socket so the new fixture would meet flush. I'm not a wiz with electrical stuff so if I could avoid changing out the whole unit that would be great!

The recessed can should sit flush with the ceiling, and trim rings can be changed as desired. But some trim rings limit the size of the lamp that can be used. See the label inside the fixture.
