Verilux SmartLight - The Lamp for Learning

Saturday, July 05, 2014


 

Do you remember that episode of Northern Exposure when Walt uses a special light visor to help his depression caused by the short days in northern areas? Ever since I watched it, I've always been intrigued by the potential uses of full spectrum lighting that essentially replicates wavelengths of natural daylight. Could the use of such lighting have notable, positive impacts on our lives, I wondered? This is why I chose to test out the Verilux SmartLight Desk Lamp.

 

Your Ideal Study Partner

 

The SmartLight Desk Lamp features Verliux's patented Natural Spectrum® Daylight. Available in graphite and white, this desk lamp has a flexible gooseneck for precise positioning of light, making it incredibly easy to adjust. It comes with a long-life energy efficient bulb that can be removed with ease. Ordering 27 watt replacement bulbs can be done via the component order form included in the product manual or online at verilux.com. Though it may vary, the life of the bulb can amount to 10,000 hours, making the replacement cost of $19.95 a bit easier to swallow. The wide shine pattern of the lamp illuminates a large work area and the Natural Spectrum® illumination improves visual clarity for increased productivity. Read faster with greater comprehension and study longer without eyestrain.

What the Research Shows

 

Use of Verilux Natural Spectrum® lighting, in a school setting, increased visual acuity (clarity and sharpness of letters) for over 88% of the study participants. 1

A study of full spectrum lighting in schools reported that students perform better, have higher rates of achievement and have less stress and improved attendance.2

Multiple Uses


The Natural Spectrum® lighting provided by the Verilux SmartLight Desk Lamp has proven to be quite useful not just when reading, but also when crafting as well. It has allowed me to obtain true colour captures when photographing objects as well. I can also see further benefits for those who sew and need dedicated lighting to help ease the strain on the eyes.
