Full Spectrum Lamps - True Light

Full Spectrum lamps harness the full range of UV light that the sun provides. Full spectrum lamps cast a clean and true light, and emulates the sun. This is especially useful for those who benefit from this type of light. Artists, readers, craftspeople, or those who are unable to spend much time in natural sunlight benefit from balanced, full spectrum lamps

Replacement Bulbs

LampsUSA stocks a variety of replacement full spectrum bulbs for lamps you may already own. We have Verilux, Grandrich-EZ Reader, Trademark, Full Spectrum, and more.

Phototherapy - Lightbox Therapy

Artificial sunlight is found useful in treating and preventing Seasonal Affective Disorder (also known as winter depression, which brings about depressive symptoms specifically in winter), and delayed sleep phase syndrome, in which the circadian (day V/s night)-rhythm is disturbed, and the individual tends to fall asleep at the same time much after midnight.

Light Therapy

Artificial sunlight is found useful in treating and preventing Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD, (also known as winter depression, which brings about depressive symptoms specifically in winter when our vitamin D levels drop), and delayed sleep phase syndrome, in which the circadian (day V/s night)-rhythm is disturbed, and the individual tends to fall asleep at the same time much after midnight.
Artificial sunlight may also be useful in prevention, or minimizing the severity of jet lag. Although, UV light is used in treatment of psoriasis and eczema (as PUVA therapy), and in treatment of acne, (in which case it is also accompanied by application of red light), it is not the entire spectrum of visible light that is employed. Harness the healing power of sunlight in the comfort of your home or office. Pioneering technology from Verilux offers several condition-specific therapy lamps.

The Power of Sunlight - Indoors!

The body produces Vitamin D from sunlight (specifically from the UVB band of ultraviolet light), and lack of sunlight can lead to a deficiency. Metropolitan areas have higher levels of air pollution, which block healthy sunlight. It is recommended that we each soak in one hour of unfiltered sunlight each day in order to enjoy its many benefits, which include:

  • Improve Immunity & Prevention of Disease
  • Lower Blood Pressure (The farther the distance from the equator, the higher the blood pressure levels)
  • Increased Metabolism & Energy Levels
  • Mood Enhancement
  • Improved Sleep
  • Increased brightness, contrast, & clarity
  • The highest quality of ligh available
  • No strobe-like flicker, Reduces Eye Strain & Fatigue
  • Improved Learning Ability
  • Plants also benefit from full spectrum lighting

Buyer's Guides - Floor Lamps Buyer's Guide

If you need adequate ambient light for a larger room and don't want to hire an electrician, floor lamps are your best bet. These convenient lighting fixtures can be placed near chairs, couches, and tables to serve as a task light. They can also be moved from one area or another, wherever additional illumination is needed. Plus, giving it a whole new look is as quick as changing its shade. 

The problem is that there are thousands of floor lamps in various styles, colors, and materials imaginable. This might be a good thing, considering that you will have more options for your finicky standards but such wide range can also be a cause for a massive headache, as you will have a hard time choosing that one perfect floor lamp that will work best for your needs as well as for your room’s existing décor.
