It's baaaccck...and parents everywhere are rejoicing! What should be on everyone's back to school list? One purchase that will keep on paying dividends the entire school year is a great desk lamp.
A good reading light will not only help prevent eye-strain and fatigue (especially in the first couple of months as a student’s eyes readjust to hours of reading and homework), it can also help create a more comfortable, stimulating study environment.
So, what make's a good reading light? We like adjustable desk lamp designs and pharmacy style lamps that focus the light down to books and papers.
Specialty desk lamps include models with built-in magnifiers, like the clamp-on model pictured above, LED desk lamps or other energy efficient desk lamps that use CFL bulbs.
No matter what the style, place the lamp opposite a student's writing hand so that shadows don’t streak across their work.
