I have been a fan of Verilux products for years, so I was very excited to have the opportunity to try the Heritage Desk Lamp.  This model is very attractive - but it is also good for my eyes.  Both of my sons and I have sensory issues and we are easily affected by different types of light.  This lamp provides natural Spectrum Light which is pleasing to the eyes and nervous system.

Our lamp arrived carefully packaged and required some simple assembly.  The instructions were included and easy to follow.  I began by attaching the adapter to the power cord and the ballast piece onto the back end of the lamp.  

Then it was time to put the bulb in place - a very straightforward task that was done in less than a minute.  Using only my thumb, I was able to unlatch the filter lens, then I carefully removed it.  The bulb has pins that line up with the small holes in the base of the lamp head so it popped right into place.  The Optix lens cover was easy to replace and the lamp was ready to be plugged in for use.

Here is a close up photo collage of how to insert the light bulb:

If you check out the diagram below you can see all of the wonderful features that the Heritage Desk Lamp has to offer.  Do take into account that while the ballast provides good stability, but it also requires a bit more room than most desk lamps.

I love the ability to turn the lamp head to suit my needs and the fact that I have my choice of three brightness levels.  If I am reading or working I can train the light directly onto my book.or project.  I can also use it as a room lamp.

It is very easy to adjust the angles with just a few twists of the thumb screws.  Once the desired angle is achieved, a few more twists will tighten it right back up.  The lamp portion swivels 350 degrees to direct the light/
