Position this SAD lamp just off on the side of your face so that you aren’t looking directly into the light.

  1. Place the therapy lamp on a stable surface, preferably a table or desk, 5”-18” away from your eyes. You can read, eat or work on your computer while you use light therapy lamp. Good rule of thumb is setting the lamp next to your computer keyboard.
  2. Do not stare directly at the light. The sunlight is effective even when the light reaches your eyes indirectly, from a sideways direction. Use therapy light in a well-lit room to minimize eye strain.
  3. Experiment with the light intensity and session duration until you find a routine that’s comfortable and effective for you. For most people, that’s 15 to 60 minutes a day, but your needs may be different.
