About the Organisation

Welcome to the home of world’s best reading lights.

Improving performance through the application of better light has always been in our DNA. It all began in 1986 when our Founder Alex Pratt OBE designed a specialist sewing light for Singer Sewing Machines. It was so well received that Serious rapidly became the global choice for productivity-enhancing sewing lights across the World.

From there, production expanded into specialist lights for machine tools. Famed in industry for both light quality and durability, Serious soon established itself as the go-to light for special purpose vehicles including the Space Shuttle, ultra-high altitude balloons (including those used by Richard Branson in his world record attempts) and RNLI lifeboats. These days, Serious lights are sought after for a variety of light-dependent applications such as surgery, forensic science and fine art restoration.

In recent times we have made our technology and new products available to consumers as reading tools for use at home, and we have now sold over 250,000 Serious lights to fans in 63 countries around the Globe. Our individual customers number many doctors, surgeons, MPs, opticians, judges, academics and royalty.

Serious lights are proud to be the only reading lights to be recommended by over 400 Independent Opticians in the UK, and are of particular benefit to those suffering from a range of eye conditions including Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Cataracts and Presbyopia.
