Because so many of you have expressed an interest in the Ott-Lite, I've taken segments of the description off the box that my new lite came in, so here goes: Dr. John Ott, a photobiologist and pioneer in light research, discovered the remarkable effects that specific wavelengths of natural light have on all living things. Dr. Ott developed the first OTT-LITE product while he was filming The Secrets of Life for Walt Disney. He spent 40 years of scientific research to create the specially formulated blend of rare earth phosphors that he used to create the unique illumination that looks and feels like natural daylight. It's possible to see with superior clarity without the intense heat, excessive glare and the harsh distortion of standard lighting. When I googled Dr. Ott, I found a wealth of information. Too much to post here. He's known as the "Father of Full Spectrum Light" and his hometown was Chicago, IL. I mentioned in a comment that I bought my lite for $40 online from Joanne Fabrics. They have many ott-lites on sale right now, so it's a good time to buy. Just thought you'd like to know. Glad to be of service to ya!
