Dayton Ohio: In a half page ad in the Washington Post today, Microsun Lamps of Dayton offered to provide the Oval office with one of their powerful reading lights. The headline “Maybe our President would read more if he wasn’t in the dark” was a provocative entendre to open a discussion about the President’s known aversion to reading, and Microsun’s assertion that most older Americans are reading with too little light. President Trump, at 71, would likely find the true full spectrum light, that’s optimized for older eyes helpful when reading overly long documents like the federal budget.

If the President takes them up on their offer, this wouldn’t be the first Microsun lamp in the halls of government, their most popular lamp is called the “Library of Congress” and the lamps are actually in use there.

The output of a single Microsun lamp is the equivalent of eight 60-watt bulbs, yet only uses about 90 watts of electricity. Each lamp contains three bulbs: two LED full spectrum lamps on one switch, and the proprietary Microsun bulb in the center on a second switch. It’s the center bulb that makes it “The light that rises”, taking a few minutes to “rise” to full brightness.

The combination of the three bulbs provides more light in the wavelengths that most bulbs do not, and that are crucial for eyes of people over 50 who need more blue light to counter the yellowing of eyes with age. Most seniors find they can put away magnifying glasses and “readers” when using a Microsun lamp, and can read longer without eyestrain.

The company, which is celebrating its twentieth year in 2018, assembles and ships lights from their new 30,000 sq ft headquarters in Dayton where they have a factory showroom. Most of their sales are direct, from their website at www.microsun.com or via phone. All lamps come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, allowing their customers to try them at home without risk. Returns are a rarity. The company recently surpassed 100,000 units sold.

So far, no word on if President Trump will accept their gift. In the meantime, Microsun will continue on their quest to “Make America Bright Again” in 2018.
