All Verilux lamps & bulbs emit a natural, full-spectrum light that mimics daylight. What makes a HappyLight® different from our other products is the intensity of light that the HappyLight® emits. Just like the sun emits an intense, bright light, so does a HappyLight®.
The technical term for measuring the intensity of light is “lux,” and it’s the amount of lux that’s important for treating winter blues effectively. Regular lamps and light fixtures don’t emit enough lux, and it’s the lux amount that makes light therapy lamps unique.
Also, for light therapy to work effectively, the light needs to be directed toward your eyes - that’s where the light enters your body. General purpose lamps direct light downward, but the HappyLight® directs the light toward your eyes also while keeping your eyes safe and comfortable with a diffusion lens.
