The high setting (both switches turned on) provides 10,000 lux @ 23″; 5,000 lux @ 34″; or 2,500 lux @ 49″. The low setting (only one switch turned on) provides 10,000 lux @ 14″; 5,000 lux @ 24″; or 2,500 lux @ 36″.
Average use using the high setting (both switches on), the 10,000 lux distance is roughly 20-30 minutes per day at 23 inches away from the light of the unit.

On the low setting ( 1 switch on/1 switch off) the 10,000 lux distance is roughly 20-30 minutes per day at 14 inches away from the light of the unit. At 24 inches away from the face of the unit, that would be equivalent of 40 minutes to 1 hour. At 36 inches, the light might be used for 2-3 hours. Actual time for a particular individual will vary.

Most people use their SunBox light boxes as sources of bright light during the fall and winter months. Some people use them on overcast days at any time of year, or when their schedules or surroundings do not allow much exposure to natural sunlight. Sun Boxes are also used by people working night shifts. Most people use light in the morning. If you use light too late in the day, it may disturb your sleep.
To use a SunBox, the light should be in front of you, angled so that the light shines onto your face, and your eyes should be open. It is not necessary to look directly into the light; most people read, eat, or watch TV while using their SunBox. Eyeglasses or contact lenses may be worn, but heavily tinted sunglasses will reduce the amount of light received.
Average use at the 10,000 lux distance is roughly 20-30 minutes per day. At 5,000 lux, that would be the equivalent of 40 minutes to I hour. At 2,500 lux, the light might be used for two to three hours. Actual time for a particular individual will vary. It usually takes some experimentation to find a routine that is right for you.
