I was diagnosed with SAD officially in 2006 but suspected it long before then – during the 1990s, the office I worked in had no natural light – only ceiling-based fluorescent – and I found myself falling into moderate depression each year between the time when daylight saving time ended and the time when it began again the following year. Once I had been switched to an office with floor-to-ceiling windows with abundant natural sunlight, the problem disappeared so I recognized that I likely suffered from the disorder.

My sister, who also worked in government, had a fellow worker with the condition and when the person retired and left this lamp behind, she obtained the lamp for me and I used it to “self-medicate” for my (at the time) undiagnosed SAD.

This lamp is one of the best I have come across and still provides relief for my symptoms more than a decade after I first acquired it. It is of top quality and, unlike others that I have tried, doesn’t “blind” me by having to look directly at the bulb(s) – the combination of the U-shaped full-spectrum fluorescent tube and the parabolic reflector behind it spreads the light out and diffuses it into a beam that isn’t difficult to look directly at – plus it also ensures that the half of the light generated by the back of the fluorescent tube is redirected to the front of the lamp instead of being lost/absorbed where it cannot be seen, making it a very effective treatment device that directs virtually all the light generated by the source forward to where it is most needed.

Living along the 45th parallel, it has proved to be an excellent item for treating my disorder efficiently and effectively with great efficacy during the dark times of the year when most needed. I highly recommend this lamp to anyone suffering from the “winter blues” or with an suspected or official diagnosis of Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Additionally, it makes a great desk lamp for reading or for doing any form of fine work that requires a bright and diffuse full-spectrum light source – there are no bright and dim areas in the light field unlike some others I’ve tried – just a wide and universally consistent light field is created anywhere the reflector unit is directed towards. I’ve even used it successfully as a grow light for my houseplants to provide supplemental light to keep them healthy and vibrant over the winter months.

This item has so many varied uses to which it can be put and it performs them all admirably and reliably – and is solidly built, well-balanced, and easy to adjust. I can’t recommend this lamp more highly – it is a superior piece of kit and provides me relief from my condition along with a myriad of other uses. If it were possible, I’d have rated it 7 stars out of 5 for all the extra uses for this light provides beyond its awesome treatment of providing complete relief of my SAD.
