A Path to Better Vision
For a healthier way to see, give the gift of a lighting upgrade for use at home or at work. For example, this Refine LED Desk Lamp from OttLite’s Wellness Series provides smooth, uniform light while reducing eyestrain by up to 51 percent. The brushed nickel finish gives it elegant appeal and a convenient USB port charges electronics while four brightness settings allow for functional control to evenly distribute the balanced, natural illumination.
