Circadian-Lighting Spectacles Achieve Global Sales in 40 Countries

circadia
The Australian company says its Re-Timer spectacles – developed at Flinders University – are scientifically proven to re-time the user’s body clock. The product works by suppressing the body’s production of melatonin, the sleep hormone our bodies produce which makes us feel tired. The spectacles deliver green-blue light to the eyes via two LED lights mounted on the frames. The firm says this is the most effective color of light for treating seasonal affective disorder, or the so-called ‘winter blues’. The company says that because the lens of our eyes becomes cloudy and yellows as we age, it restricts blue light, so green light – the Re-Timer peaks at 500nm – is a superior treatment option for older people. Re-Timer, which costs $21), should be worn for 30 minutes a day. http://luxreview.com
