What are Goodlite Luminette light therapy glasses?
Lack of exposure to sunlight can lead to gloominess, sleep disturbances, fatigue and other symptoms. Goodlite Luminette light therapy glasses relieve these symptoms. The glasses emit LED light on a wavelength that mimics that of bright sunlight. This triggers neurotransmitters to reset your biological clock, allowing you to feel energised, sleep better and feel less depressed. Luminette light therapy glasses do not shine directly into your eyes. Instead, the light that is emitted hits the diffraction lens on the visor from which it is then reflected optimally on the retina. The glasses contain their own power source (rechargeable batteries) and allow you to freely go about your daily activities without having to sit in front of a table-top light box. With the Luminette, you can move around freely while reaping the benefits of light therapy. You can order Goodlite Luminette light therapy glasses online via one of Dokteronline.com’s partner pharmacies.
What is this device used for?
The UK has a moderate sea climate, with cool summers, mild winters and relatively little sunshine. In addition, most people spend more time indoors than out. The risk of developing problems associated with lack of sunlight exposure is therefore a real concern. Lack of sunlight can cause problems such as:
- Fatigue and/or lack of energy;
- Disturbances in circadian rhythm (difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep or waking up too early);
- Winter depression or another form of seasonal affective disorder (SAD);
- Non-seasonal mood disorders;
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
Luminette light therapy glasses by Goodlite reduce these problems and can be used to treat or prevent disturbed sleep-wake patterns caused by jetlag or night shifts. Women with menopausal symptoms or a postnatal depression can also benefit from light therapy. The Luminette delivers LED light without UV rays and therefore does not cause eye damage. The light is reflected downwards into the pupils at an optimal angle to allow for maximum efficiency in minimal time. This means you only have to wear the glasses for a short time. Light therapy has no side effects, which is another big advantage.
How to use Goodlite Luminette light therapy glasses
Goodlite Luminette light therapy glasses can be ordered online from our partner pharmacies. Charge the battery before using your glasses for the first time. The Luminette is designed to be positioned with an adjustable height nose piece. Consult the manual for instructions on how to use the glasses. The manual will also tell you how long you should wear the glasses (the typical treatment time is 15 to 20 minutes a day), and how often and when light therapy is advisable. This may vary depending on the condition being treated.
When not to use this device
Talk to your doctor before using light therapy if you have a sensitivity to light or suffer from epilepsy, mental problems or an eye disease. You should also consult your doctor if you are currently taking medication as light therapy may interact with certain medicines. Do not use the Luminette for light therapy for children unless a doctor tells you otherwise.
