The first Monday after a time change is difficult, especially when we’re “springing forward”. Losing that precious hour of sleep in the middle of a weekend has lasting effects that can carry over for several days and weeks.
Our bodies become used to our schedules, and when time is adjusted, we often find that we have some catching up to do.
Did you know that one of the things that helps us adjust to changes in time is better, brighter light?
Use light to your advantage. Light is the strongest cue that helps adjusts our internal body clock. When possible, expose yourself to bright light early in the morning upon awakening.
When we’re waking up to dark morning, it can be difficult to get our bodies moving, especially when our internal clocks think we should still be in a nice warm bed. Bright light can help us wake up and ease into the day. The best light for this is light that mimics the natural light of the sun.
Microsun light is modeled after the sun. With 8x more light than your standard bulb, the brightness of Microsun light will help you “wake up” and face the day, when you’re adjusting to Daylight Saving Time, and every other day!
Did you know that Microsun light rises like the sun? When you turn on your Microsun, the light takes about a minute to come to full brightness, allowing your eyes to gradually adjust to the brightness of the light. It’s like a sunrise in your home!
“It was like sunshine just poured into my house!” -Peter in Welches, OR

Did you know that as we age, we have more difficulty distinguishing all of the colors of the spectrum?
Colors lose their vibrancy, it become harder for us to distinguish between different colors, and slight color nuances become lost to our eyes.
Decreased color vision. Cells in the retina that are responsible for normal color vision decline in sensitivity as we age, causing colors to become less bright and the contrast between different colors to be less noticeable. In particular, blue colors may appear faded or “washed out.”
While this is a natural result the yellowing of the lenses in our aging eyes, we always recommend that the best eye health starts with regular eye exams and doctor visits.
At Microsun, we’ve engineered our light with the needs of your aging eyes in mind, specifically addressing this issue of color rendition and clarity.
The light from a Microsun is designed to enhance the colors in the blue spectrum, enabling users to once again distinguish the full rainbow of colors with renewed clarity.
Color clarity is important to all of us, perhaps even more so to those with intricate hobbies such as model painting, sewing or cross stitching.
Susan from New Mexico is an award-winning cross stitch artist, often working ten or more hours a day to create her incredible projects. The intricacy involved in cross-stitching often leads to eye strain and difficulty differentiating between the hues of the many thread colors.
Susan had tried many lamps and became discouraged over her need for more light, and then she saw an ad for Microsun, and that made all the difference.
Once Susan tried Microsun, she noted that the difference between Microsun light and those other lamps was “night and day.”

Dr. Heath Gilbert is an Optometrist in Dayton, Ohio who graduated with his Doctorate in Optometry from The Ohio State University and currently practices at the Dayton Optometric Center. He has served as president of the Miami Valley Society of Optometrists and also consults with the Dayton Veterans Administration.
As we age, it is inevitable that we will experience some level of vision loss. As an optometrist, Dr. Gilbert is very aware of the issues associated with those of us who live with vision loss. He has a Microsun lamp in his low-vision rehabilitation practice and sees his patients benefit from Microsun. According to Dr. Gilbert, most patients who read an eye chart under a Microsun lamp can see 1-2 lines beneath where they typically read with standard light. He also notes that people are better able to read even poorly printed materials like magazines, etc. under the clarity of Microsun light.
Watch the video above to hear Dr. Gilbert talk about age-related vision loss and Microsun light. You can see the difference that 8x better, brighter light will make in your own home or office. Like Dr. Gilbert’s patients, you will also enjoy the benefit of improved quality of life when you choose a Microsun lamp.
The lamp shown in the video is a Microsun Solis with swing arm extended, allowing brilliant Microsun light to be directed downward towards your paper, book, etc. for optimal lighting efficiency.
Since we were young, our parents have warned us to make sure we have plenty of light when we read. As a child, I often disregarded that warning, choosing post-bedtime undercover reading by flashlight. Back then, it wasn’t a strain to read under poor lighting…
Dayton area optometrist Heath Gilbert demonstrates the brightness of Microsun light on reading materials.
However, as we age, it’s time we once again listen to mom and dad who wanted us have the right light when we read.
Do your eyes get tired? Are you fatigued and finding it hard to focus when you read for extended periods of time? If so, then you need more light. We always recommend regular eye examinations and proper medical treatment; however, you will often see marked improvement simply by ensuring that you have the light you need.
Microsun lamps are 8x brighter than standard lamps, optimized to help you do what you love for longer, with reduced eye strain and less fatigue. Read longer, under better light with Microsun.
“Your lamps have dramatically improved my ability to read fine print in newspapers. Perfect.” -James S.
PREVENTING AND TREATING EYESTRAIN Although eyestrain isn’t permanent, it can be uncomfortable. The first line of defense against eyestrain is to have regular vision screening examinations to ensure that your eyes are healthy and also to monitor for vision changes….Wearing your glasses or contacts as directed and reading under better lighting conditions should resolve most of your eyestrain symptoms.
If you need more light, Microsun can help. We have many different lamp styles to choose from, all with brilliant Microsun light.

Nora McFarlane is a long arm quilter and fabric artist who couldn’t work without her Microsun Lamp. She’s used an Ottlite in the past, but now wouldn’t work without her Microsun lamp. She has two Microsun lamps in her studio, where she invited us to film. We met her through the Paducah Quilt Show where she wowed people with her innovative and beautiful works of art.
If you are involved in quilting, fabric painting, long arm quilting and you are looking for a way to reduce eye strain, get better color rendition and be able to thread a needle without a pair of readers, you will be much happier with a Microsun lamp. The Solis is one of our most popular lights for quilters, with a swing arm to help bring the light right over your work surface. The heavy base, makes sure that the lamp will not tip over. While an Ottlite may seem like a good choice, with it’s “flexible” arm, you’d need 8 Ottlites to equal the output of a single Microsun.
Watch Nora compare the Microsun lamp to the Ottlite in this video
When it comes to any kind of crafting, Microsun will help you enjoy what you love for longer.
