Why this model:
The Verilux HappyLight Liberty 10K Energy Lamp provides up to 10,000 LUX* of full spectrum light, the highest recommended output for addressing seasonal change, the 'winter blues' or the effects of shift work, jet lag, malaise or fatigue. Balanced Natural Spectrum illumination taps the potency of light to gently cue your body to recalibrate and stabilize, naturally reducing fatigue and lethargy while improving focus and concentration.
No two people view and react to light in the same way, so this energy lamp provides the flexibility to customize the light to meet your needs. High-Low intensity controls, interchangeable lenses and a tilt feature give you maximum flexibility to design the program that works best for you. A broad field of up to 10,000 LUX* of light provides a more flexible program, allowing you to be farther from the lamp and to move around more freely during use.
When to use it:
For most people, 30 to 60 minutes is a productive, effective light therapy session – generally in the morning. Some may also flip on the light for a while in the afternoon to combat the difficult 'lunch coma'.
Why the light's not too bright:
The Liberty 10K is designed to provide effective, comfortable light therapy. An Optix lens diffuses the light to reduce glare and eye fatigue, and Flicker-Elimination Technology further reduces fatigue and discomfort.
- 10,000 LUX of soothing Natural Spectrum illumination
- Two interchangeable, replaceable lenses – High-Energy and Comfort – and two light intensity settings provide four options to tune the light to your needs , comfort and energy level
- Optix lenses reduce glare and eye fatigue
- Wall mountable for convenient, discreet use
- Tilts 15° forward and backward to expand the treatment area
- Compact design for portable, convenient use with no reduction in performance
What is LUX?
LUX is simply a measure of the intensity or brightness of a light at a given distance from its source. The National Institute of Health identified 2,500 to 10,000 LUX as the optimum range for comfortable, effective light therapy.
How it works:
Verilux HappyLights provide broad spectrum light therapy to stimulate all of the eye's photoreceptors: cones, rods and the newly discovered melanopsin. HappyLights offer photopic light (primarily stimulating the cones) and scotopic light (primarily stimulating the rods) to reduce the size of the pupil, relaxing the eye for more comfortable light therapy. Melanopsin helps set the body's daily cycles and is triggered by Natural Spectrum Light. Scientists have demonstrated that bright light therapy can act like daylight to restore balance, mood and energy.

Why it works:
Our bodies take cues from the environment – especially from light. When our schedules are driven by man-made light, it may negatively affect our circadian system. Underexposure to natural light can result in:
The winter blues, Fatigue, Sleeplessness, Lack of focus and concentration.
Energy lamps help the body recalibrate and stabilize by cuing its natural energy enhancers and providing light to replace what’s missing during the winter months.

I typically use my light while on my computer for at least an hour in the early afternoon. They do say you're better off using it in the morning, but that doesn't work with my schedule so I do it later. I'd say do it as early as you can, and longer amounts of time are better than shorter. You have to experiment to find out how much time in front of the light you need. Since using this light, I feel a noticeably better, but more importantly, it helps with my sleep. I used to fall asleep on the train all the time and would nearly miss my stop, but I have more energy during the day and my mood is improved. I will say that I experience a mild withdrawal when I skip a day of my light and get a little agitated, which I believe indicates that the light does indeed have an impact on one's mood and it should help most people.
As for the construction of the light, it feels pretty sturdy to me. Overall, I'd say it's worth trying this light. It's a very safe and easy treatment for Depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder, and very cheap if you find it helps! Most of all, I find that it works!
2016 rolled around and in late August, I started getting severe anxiety for no reason I could fathom. To quell it without using prescription meds, I started taking a supplement, inositol. It was helpful on days I took it, but not a cure all and as the days got shorter, I was finding myself overcome with nervous, free floating anxiety upon arising and a vague feeling of dread in the late afternoon. Since I knew I wasn't mentally ill but that I did have S.A.D. I decided to stop being a cheap skate at the risk of my own well being and bought this light box, although I was not hoping for much. What an amazing surprise I got the first time I used it!
I work from home so I get up early in order to enjoy a slow morning before I put in 9 hours at my desk. The first time I used this, I made a pot of tea, opened my laptop, set the Verilux on the table about a foot from my face, turned the light box on and sat next to it for about 30 minutes while I read, drank tea, had breakfast and answered e-mail. I turned it off and put it away and went about my day. At lunch time, I used it for another 30 minutes while I ate and read. I did not get that late afternoon crash and sense of impending doom and I slept better than I had since the summer. Being a skeptic, I figured it was a fluke, but daily use twice a day has afforded me with a lot of very positive mental and physical energy. I do more, I feel more creative and mentally awake and my outlook on life is much more upbeat. I am a lot more productive at my job, my house is cleaner and I find that I am not procrastinating over the simplest things like I had been every fall and winter. I have changed nothing else in my daily routine other than to use this twice a day for 30 minutes at a stretch. If a simple $100 box and light bulb can do this, I feel foolish for all the sad (no pun), slow, depressing fall and winter seasons I've slogged through feeling submerged in gloom for the past 50 some years. Now I feel like I've been given my life back and am not just half a person for half the year.
Please-if you have S.A.D. symptoms-BUY ONE! I have no regrets; this was money very well spent.
The light is bright and simulates sunlight well; I liken turning it on to stepping out in to the sunlight without glasses after a week of cloudiness... it takes a second to get used to, but very easily settle in to using it. It's a very white and natural light, not yellowish, which I read on reviews of some others, nor the flourescent office-type lighting. It has a cover that softens the glow and puts out about 5,000 LUX, according to the paperwork, and using that cover means you may need to duplicate the amount of time you're in front of the light... without the cover it's about 10,000 LUX. It's my first light and after 20 minutes of use in the morning I do find myself a little more energized throughout the day- afternoons in the Northeast are usually tough this time of year, and I have already seen some slight improvement. I've has it 5 days. Amazon did a great job shipping- it was sent out the same day and arrived 2 days later, which AMazon said it would be.
