It’s a scientific fact that our eyes see best in natural daylight. Eye muscles relax and contract to collect just the right amount of illumination producing greater contrast and truer colors with less effort and irritation. In 1956, Verilux invented Natural Spectrum® light to simulate natural daylight and bring all of its benefits indoors.
Verilux Natural Spectrum lighting was developed on the basic premise that the eyes’ photoreceptors, rods and cones, work best together when exposed to the full and balanced spectrum of visible light. With balanced stimuli, your brain is more efficient in interpreting the wide range of information needed to create an accurate mental representation of the world around you.
Today, every Verilux lamp and healing lighting product uses Natural Spectrum light to make visually demanding tasks easier to perform and more enjoyable. With Natural Spectrum light, the brilliance of true colors come to life, glare is reduced, resulting in less eye strain and fatigue.
Natural Spectrum light: the true essence of life in a better light.
