Light therapy glasses function by emitting specific wavelengths of bright light, comparable to a light box of 10,000 lux. These glasses are designed to be glare-free, emitting no UV or IR light. Light exposure causes the internal clock to send signals that generate alertness and help keep us awake and active. As night falls, the internal clock initiates the production of melatonin, a hormone that promotes sleep, and then keeps transmitting signals that help us stay asleep through the night.

Light therapy glasses are great for dealing with a variety of challenges including jet lag, shift work sleep troubles, winter blues, and anxiety disorders. By regulating the circadian rhythm and hormone production, these glasses help address various health issues caused by disrupted sleep-wake cycles. A 20-minute session in the morning is typically recommended to reset the circadian cycle, but depending on personal chronotype and desired effect, these glasses can also be worn in the evening. These glasses are safe for the eyes and offer 7 days of battery life. They weigh a mere 1.1 ounces (31 grams), making them conveniently portable for modern lifestyles.

Research shows that light therapy glasses can enhance cognitive performance and increase energy levels, making them a valuable tool for boosting daily productivity. Ideal for students, professionals, and anyone looking to maximize their focus and efficiency. These glasses can combat fatigue and improve focus by giving the body the right light at the right time. They are beneficial for people who need an alarm clock to wake up, spend a lot of time indoors, or have irregular sleep patterns.

What is more, light therapy glasses offer a natural and non-invasive alternative to medications, which may have unwanted side effects. They are also a cost-effective solution in the long run, as they do not require frequent refills or replacements. In addition, they provide a convenient alternative to light therapy lamps, which can be bulky and require the users to sit or stand still in one place for prolonged periods.
