The Science of Natural Light

OttLite lighting is expertly engineered to bring the quality of natural daylight indoors so you can see everything more clearly and comfortably. 

How OttLite is Different 

Some light wavelengths let you see vibrant colors, yet they emit a bright glaring light. Then eye muscles react by squinting. Other wavelengths let you see with high contrast – the edges of objects are incredibly clear which is ideal for reading text and seeing fine details. Yet you lose color fidelity. 

OttLite provides the best of both – the precise balance of contrast and brightness that allows you to see details clearly and colors accurately. Now the eye can see and focus without the harsh glare, distortion and fatigue other light sources cause. It’s like natural daylight indoors! 

Why It Matters 

Details, color and comfort are critical to doing the things you love – reading, office work, scrapbooking, wood working, sewing, fly tying, cake decorating, applying makeup, learning – any activity that requires focused vision. OttLite helps people be more productive, allows better concentration and will facilitate a higher level of performance, regardless of the activity.

Now you can match thread and fabric colors with complete confidence, keep reading that page turner, or stay focused to meet your deadline. When you can see every color true to life and detail clearly, you’ll enjoy doing the things you love better and longer.
