This lamp has been a wonderful tool for me lately. My DH bought it for me about six months ago and I wasn't sure that I was going to have a lot of use for it. However, since then, I have developed a serious sight problem for which I am having surgery next week, and this lamp has allowed me to continue doing lots of things that I wouldn't have been able to do including my art and also being able to read in short bursts. Thanks DH, I think that you must have ESP. It has saved me from feeling too down about what is happening with my eyes.
