Why Verilux Healthy Lighting
Verilux healthy full spectrum lighting is an important
part of a healthy lifestyle, contributing to better vision, health and well-being.
Until 100 years ago, ninety percent of the world’s population worked outdoors. Now ninety percent work indoors under artificial lights – but changing work patterns have not changed the human need for balanced light.
Our eyes are designed to work
most efficiently in natural light,
a balanced, white light.
Ordinary incandescent or fluorescent lights, however, are unbalanced, producing a yellow or greenish light. Under these unbalanced lights our eyes must work harder to see, in effect straining to compensate for the lack of balance in the light.
Choosing Verilux healthy light is one of the easiest things you can do to improve lifelong healthy vision and feel better every day. Verilux has designed healthy lighting solutions for all your indoor lighting needs, including task, ambient and direct lighting applications.About Verilux
Over half a century ago, a young starving artist named Howard Scott suffered from Iritis, (inflammation of the iris) as he painted at night by a bare light bulb suspended from the ceiling. He pledged that someday he would do something about the dreadful lighting conditions.
In 1956 Scott founded Verilux, Inc. (Latin for "True Light".) A former Munsell® Color Engineer and famous billboard graphic artist, his mission for Verilux was to manufacture and sell the perfect daylight source. Scott experimented with rare earth phosphers and succeeded by inventing near perfect daylight indoors with his patented true color light fluorescent formula - Trucolite®.
Today, the original philosophies and founding principles have not changed. Verilux continues to explore breakthrough lighting technology and maintains an exceptionally strong commitment to the development of innovative lamps, light bulbs, tubes and compact fluorescents that simulate the full spectrum of daylight to help people see easier, feel better and work longer.Why Verilux Full Spectrum Lighting?
Bright indoor lighting created a cultural revolution when it first appeared. Suddenly, you could do things indoors, generally restricted to daylight hours. While this light was bright, researchers later found out that it wasn’t a very good simulation of natural sunlight, and in fact certain light frequencies were lacking.
These discoveries led to a “second generation” of lighting, one that used light frequencies that were the same as sunlight. Standard lighting actually appears yellow when compared to natural spectrum lighting.
When you use Verilux natural spectrum lighting in your home, colors appear brighter. Verilux natural spectrum lighting also improves your mood, and in fact some schools now use it because they find that students can focus much better.
Verilux Natural Spectrum® light bulbs are the closest replication of natural sunlight available. Verilux bulbs contain neodymium, a rare earth element, that filters out the excessive yellow part of the spectrum to which our eyes are most sensitive. The result is a healthier, more natural, pleasing white light. Ordinary bulbs are very rich in the color yellow, and cause other colors in the spectrum to appear dull. Verilux shows colors accurately and increases the contrast between black and white, while reducing glare, eyestrain, and fatigue. See and feel the difference of Verilux Natural Spectrum® light bulbs.
Verilux healthy lighting is built on Trucolite Phosphor Technology™, a specialized blend of rare earth phosphors used inside our bulbs to create balanced light.
To eliminate fluorescent light bulb flicker, Verilux developed Flicker Elimination Technology™ for instant-on flicker-free healthy lighting
for the life of your Verilux lamp.
Verilux full spectrum light provides the brightness, contrast and clarity to read longer and perform task work without eyestrain or headaches. Our light also helps mitigate sight problems like cataracts and macular degeneration. We also offer a full line of modern floor lamps, reading lamps, desk lamps, task and craft lamps.
