Bright Light Therapy Lamp Offers Bright Spot for Winter Blues

Carex Health Brands' Day-Light Classic Plus

Carex Health Brands®, a leading provider and manufacturer of bright light therapy products and a subsidiary of Compass Health Brands, is pleased to announce that its Day-Light Classic Plus was recently recognized as the “best light therapy lamp” for seasonal affective disorder (SAD) by The Sweethome, part of The New York Times Company.

The Sweethome’s experts extensively researched and examined the Day-Light Classic Plus, a device used in medical facilities, hospitals and research centers across the country, alongside 40 other bright light therapy lamps. After 25 hours of research, The Sweethome found the Day-Light Classic Plus met all of the necessary criteria to be deemed effective for treating SAD and can be purchased at an affordable price point, and named it the best light therapy lamp.

"At Carex Health Brands, we strive to deliver quality, innovative and affordable products that will help consumers live their best lives,” explained Compass Health Brands’ Vice President, Marketing – Retail, Jeff Swain. “We are absolutely thrilled that our Day-Light Classic Plus bright light therapy lamp has been recognized for just that.”

Each year, shorter, darker, winter days cause nearly 10 million Americans to experience symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), or as some people call it, ‘the winter blues.’ As the #1 recommended treatment for SAD, bright light therapy lamps such as the Day-Light Classic Plus can help consumers experience relief in just 20 to 30-minute treatment sessions. Featuring UV-free light and the maximum dose of 10,000 LUX of glare, and recommendations from The Sweethome, the Center for Environmental Therapeutics and leading university researchers around the world, when it comes to treating SAD, the Day-Light Classic Plus is the proven option.

The Day-Light Classic Plus is available for an MSRP of $209.99 and can be purchased through many online retailers including, or through Carex’s website. For more information please visit
