For over fifty years Verilux, Inc. has specialized in naturally balanced, visually efficient indoor lighting solutions for better living, health and well-being. A leader in healthy lighting technology, Verilux remains committed to developing lighting products that promote lifelong healthy vision and help people maximize their vision potential at all stages in life.Lighting is one of the most overlooked aspects of the home and work environment even though it is a simple, cost effective and immediate way to improve comfort and health. Verilux carefully considers two essential elements, balanced light and properly directed light, when designing task lighting fixtures. Dr. Sam Berman, former Senior Scientist, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, Group Leader, Lighting Research Group, has published extensive research on the relationship between visual performance and the light spectrum. Verilux technology is based on this scientific data, seeking to improve visual performance by achieving a balanced light spectrum.To meet the specific light requirements of the human eye Verilux applies a unique coating of rare earth phosphors to the inside of every Verilux light bulb. This acts as a filter, allowing the right amount of light from each part of the light spectrum to pass through the bulb, resulting in balanced light that closely simulates sunlight. In comparison, ordinary incandescent or fluorescent bulbs produce too much of the yellow part of the light spectrum.Our durable, sturdy products are designed to meet the needs of a range of users. We focus on quality products and innovative designs that meet customer needs for affordability and usability. Accessibility is considered in all our designs to ensure that those with mobility challenges find our fixtures easy to manipulate. Verilux products all undergo a rigorous testing regimen to ensure each fixture meets our strict quality standards. We are continually expanding and improving our products to meet changing needs in the home and workplace while educating consumers about the importance of visually efficient lighting for all stages of life.Verilux's Original Series lamps have been approved by Lighthouse International for use by people who are visually impaired.
