Frequently Asked Questions
How does the Carex Classic Plus Light therapy device treat SAD? Seasonal Affective Disorder (sometimes referred to as the winter blues) is associated with low levels of serotonin in the brain. Decreased serotonin levels can contribute to depression, problems sleeping, and loss of appetite. Studies indicate that when we are subjected to either a very bright light source (~10,000 LUX), serotonin levels in the brain are elevated. This chemical change in the body can result in mood elevation and a general feeling of well being.
Is light therapy safe? Yes, light therapy treatment has been shown to be both very safe and very effective. This lamp blocks 99.3% of UV for eye safety and comfort.
For maximum benefit, use this light box in the morning. A minimum of twenty to thirty minutes every day at the proper distance (or up to an hour, if it is situated farther away) should be very effective and with experience you'll notice how long is best for you, as everyone is different.
Do not look directly at the light. As with all medical devices of this nature, we recommend that you seek the advice of your physician before using it for any extended time. Each individual's light sensitivity may vary. People taking light-sensitive drugs, or have a history of bipolar disorder, or who have glaucoma, cataracts, retinal detachment, or who are at risk for diabetes should consult their physician prior to using this light. Please note that no known adverse effect of light therapy have been found in eye examinations of photo-therapy patients to date.
