    Regain the joy of reading in comfort

    A Serious Light will:

    Maximise your ability to see detail and colours, employing specialist Daylight Wavelength Technology™.

    Minimise the risk of damage to your eyes, eradicating the harmful blue-light spike commonly found in standard LEDs.

    Optimise your posture and well-being by stopping you subconsciously straining when you are struggling to see clearly.

    Your sight is our focus

    We believe light transforms sight. Since inventing the first Serious Light 35 years ago, for his mum who was struggling to see, our founder Alex has been pioneering research into sight and light.

    Our sole focus is building high performance floor lights for reading to project superior light that helps you see and feel better.

    Serious floor lights for reading are recommended by over 500 independent opticians, and used by over 250,000 light owners in over 63 countries.

    Nothing to lose...

    As everyone’s eyesight is unique, we pride ourselves on offering a 30 day risk-free trial, allowing you to test your Serious Light in your own home. If for any reason you find the light unsuitable, we will collect the light at our cost (UK mainland only) and fully refund you.

    However, 99% of people who decide to try a Serious Light end up keeping it. Thousands of Serious Light owners relax and read books under the powerful beam of their light.

    We particularly recommend the High Definition or Alex LED lights for book reading as they offer direct beams shining on to the page, with a natural light output.

    My new light has turned me back into the bookworm I have been since I was 4 years old a very long time ago.

    It is absolutely amazing. Now I will spend more time reading good books compared to TV and iPad
