Am I supposed to look directly at the Aurora LightPad Mini?
No, you do not have to look directly at the Aurora LightPad Mini. But you do have to make sure that the light is within your peripheral vision with the light reaching all of your face. The important thing is that the light shines on your eyes.
Can I wear my glasses when I use my Aurora LightPad Mini?
Yes, you may wear your glasses while using your Aurora LightPad Mini. Reading or prescription glasses and contact lenses do not reduce the effect of light. However, you should not use transition lenses, tinted glasses or sunglasses.
Can I use the Aurora LightPad Mini more than once a day?
For most people, it is sufficient to use the Aurora LightPad Mini once a day. Keep in mind that you may have trouble falling asleep if you use the Aurora LightPad Mini too late in the evening.
Can I get a sunburn from using the Aurora LightPad Mini?
No, the Aurora LightPad Mini uses white LED lights that do not produce UV light.
Are there any major side effects?
The Aurora LightPad Mini is completely safe. Some people have initially experienced anxiety, headaches or early awakening. Most of these symptoms disappear with a few days and can be avoided by starting with a reduced session length or doubling the distance from the light for the first week.
Is a light box covered with my insurance company?
Yes and No. It actually depends on your insurance company as well as the policy you have with them. We recommend that you contact your insurance company to see if you are covered. If your insurance company will provide reimbursement, you must submit your physician’s prescription - or you may download our insurance form and have your physician complete it - and your purchase receipt to your insurance company to start a claim for reimbursement.
Does the light box interfere with prescription meds that require me to stay out of the sun?
The LED bulbs do not have UV output, so there is no risk of burning or damage to the skin or eyes. Double check with the pharmacy or your physician to make sure it is UV rays that you are to avoid.
What if I have an eye disease?
If you suffer from an eye disease or have a history of eye diseases in your family, you should consult your ophthalmologist before using your Aurora LightPad Mini. Also, if you are experiencing any temporary eye problems, wait until the problems subside before using the Aurora LightPad Mini.
Does using light therapy give me Vitamin D?
No. UV light is needed for vitamin D production, and the Aurora LightPad Mini is UV free.
Can children use light therapy?
Yes. Although it’s uncommon, some children get SAD, and it’s perfectly safe for them to use light therapy.
What other conditions, besides SAD, can people use light therapy for?
Research has shown that light therapy may help for various Circadian Rhythm Disorders, Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS), Sleep Disorders, Alzheimer’s Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Insomnia, Jet Lag, Shift Work Disorder, ADHD, Parkinson’s Disease, and non-seasonal depression.

“I was confident it would work because I did my homework. Sunshine, uv rays, and Vitamin D, simple science. I prefer to get my Vitamin D naturally from the sun, and now I can also get it from your Vitamin D Lamp when I can't get outside. Even though I was feeling great, I did indeed go back and have my Vitamin D levels tested again and I am back in the healthy zone.”
