DO NOT BUY A 10,000 LUX LIGHT THERAPY UNIT THAT DOES NOT STATE A 10,000 LUX DISTANCE

 

RECOMMENDED BY NLT

The NLT Desk Lamp, the LiteUP and the BOXelite OS are our best performers. They offer 10,000 Lux at a greater distance than most light therapy units while still being adjustable and easy to set up. These lights provide a large light field and the light shines down from above which has been shown to be more effective.

 

SIZE MATTERS

Large light field

Our bright light products attempt to replicate outdoor light.

The entire sky is lit up by the sun as your entire face will be lit up by our products large light screens. To get light therapy your eyes must fall in the 10,000 Lux area. This makes getting 10,000 Lux with small units very difficult because you need to sit very close and your eyes must be directly in front of the unit.

BIGGER IS BETTER.

WAKE UP LIGHTS

Avoid waking up to darkness. Wake Up Lights are not 10,000 Lux light therapy devices. They are however a great addition to your winter toolbox. These lights mimic a sunrise. As the light gradually brightens, you drift out of sleep and awaken peacefully.
