Weak circadian rhythms, seasonal mood symptoms, and disrupted sleep and daytime fatigue are common problems for people with depression and bipolar, the Luminette light therapy glasses may be a key part of a practical strategy to counteract these problems.
Light therapy (very bright light, usually in the morning) has been shown to improve seasonal and non-seasonal depression in people with unipolar and bipolar depression. And light doesn’t have side effects.
However getting light exposure can be a challenge for people who lead very busy lives. Many people feel they don’t have time in the morning to use a therapy light.
Luminette light therapy glasses allow you to get bright light while you are getting ready to start the day.
The glasses fit above your eyes, and they don’t get in the way of regular glasses. They shine a bright light into your retina, but that light doesn’t interfer
e with normal vision (if you walk around in the dark, the light might be a distraction, but not otherwise). So you can wear them as you make your breakfast, watch the news, or check your email.
They are very light and reasonably comfortable.
