Energy Boost when you need it the most
So, I tried this out to see if it actually help to boost your energy. I deprived myself of sleep for some nights, then in the middle of the day when I felt fatigued and couldn’t quit work, I put this on for like 20-30 minutes.

The AYO glass uses Blue light therapy and Ambient light sensor
The built in light sensor provides optimal light intensity. The AYO glasses emit blue lights with multiple lighting levels. You can change the harshness of the blue light, how harsh or soft the blue lights are shining into your eyes. They are tiny blue lights inside the AYO glasses that gets diffused by a small piece of plastic.
The lights in the AYO therapy glasses is free from UV & infrared and it has low glare. This is not the same blue lights that is coming from your computer screen. You might have heard horror stories about how computer screen blue lights is bad for your eyes, well this AYO blue lights is not the same thing. The blue lights from computer screen are UV lights that is from the violet indigo deep blue end of the color spectrum. This AYO therapy glass blue light is not of the same spectrum as computer screen blue lights. The blue lights in the AYO therapy glass is supposed to mimic the sun.
