LED Task Light by Stella
Low Vision Lighting for Macular Degeneration
For an individual with a low vision condition such as macular degeneration, the Stella TWO LED Task Lamp offers increased light output, more control over light intensity, and better tactile usability. In a word, Stella offers control – one of the most important functions of lighting for low vision.
What is LED lighting?
LED stands for “light-emitting diode,” which is a semiconductor device that emits light when an electric current passes through it. Unlike other types of bulbs, such as incandescent bulbs, halogen lamps, or florescent lights, LEDs do not use heated filaments or gas discharge to produce light. Not only is LED lighting more energy efficient, versatile, and long-lasting than other types of light sources, but LEDs are also “directional,” meaning that they emit light in a specific direction. Directional light is crucial in providing lighting control for low vision users.
Use an LED Task Light for Controlled Low Vision Lighting
With an LED task lamp like the Stella TWO, you control the light intensity, direction, and color spectrum. Use the segmented-steel, flexible arm to rotate the lamp in nearly any direction, with added stability from the weighted base. The light output is diffuse and extremely even, with minimal glare.
Stella TWO LED Task Lamp – Tri-spectrum technology at your fingertips
The Stella lamp’s Philips Lumiled High Output LEDs give you the brightest LED light in the marketplace plus maximum control over color spectrum and light intensity. With a touch of the tactile raised touchpad on the base of the lamp, fine-tune your lighting from warm white, to pure white, to cool white, dimmable to 10 different brightness settings.
We love the Stella brand for being both high quality and environmentally conscious. The Stella TWO LED Task Lamp offers over 50,000 hours of life with minimal heat and zero bulb replacements.
Is the Stella TWO Lamp the Right Low Vision Lighting Solution for You?
The importance of task lighting for low vision cannot be overstated. A task lamp improves visibility for activities of daily living, reading, and other hobbies, helping you maximize your remaining sight.
