What Ayo, Luminette, and Pegasi light therapy glasses have in common.
These light therapy glasses help with sleep
Each of these glasses help you with sleep. They are basically designed to boost your energy in the morning and help you fall asleep at night. Ayo, Luminette, and Pegasi light therapy glasses activate your supra-chiasmic nucleus which helps to control your melatonin level production.
When you experience insomnia, lack of sleep, waking up in the middle of the night, or other sleep problems, these light therapy glasses help to adjust your biological clock and circadian rhythm.

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) or winter blues is usually caused by insufficient exposure to light. If your doctor has recommended light therapy for you, then the Luminette, Ayo, or Pegasi light therapy glasses is a good solution to your SAD problem.
You could use SAD Lamps or boxes where you have to sit in front of the light for 30 minutes in the morning. But those light boxes cost you time because you have to stay in one location to get your light therapy. With these glasses, you can put them on and move on with your daily activities like brushing your teeth or eating breakfast.

People that travel long distances or travel a lot generally experience jet lag. What exactly is jet lag? Jet lag is fatigue from traveling typically caused by difference in time zones. Ayo, Luminette, or the Pegasi light therapy glass can really help you with jet lag.
Just using any of these glasses for 20 minutes will suppress your melatonin levels and give you an immediate boost of energy. Using these light therapy glasses will help reduce the length of time it takes you to recover from jet lag.

The ayo, luminette, and pegasi light therapy glasses are the most convenient light therapy devices in the market right now.
Now that we have seen some of the things these glasses have in common, let’s explore their differences.
What makes Ayo, Luminette, and Pegasi 2 light therapy glasses UNIQUE?
App and Connectivity
The AYO light therapy glasses has an app. The app connects to your glasses through Bluetooth. When you first open the frames of the glass, they blink blue lights 3 times. These blue lights is an indication that they are connecting to your phone via bluetooth. The app comes the option for you to set your own program using 3 different modes.
You can schedule program for sleep, travel, or energy boost ranging from 40 minutes to 20 minutes. The only downside is that you cannot use the AYO light therapy glass without the App. The App is available in android and iOS. Go here to read the full review of AYO light therapy glass.
The Luminette light therapy has an app. But, the app does not connect to the glasses through Bluetooth. The app is just there for you to schedule reminders to remind you to use the glass. You can also schedule your travel plans and it also has other scheduling features. The app is available in Android and iOS and it is called “MyLuminette.” Go here to read our full review of the Luminette light therapy glasses.
The pegasi light therapy glasses comes with its own app too. This app is available in android and iOS. The Pegasi light therapy glass connects to the app using bluetooth. And the Pegasi light therapy app can be used without the app. The app has different programs you can choose from. Since the app is not mandatory in order to use the glasses, the Pegasi light therapy app can be use to enhance your experience with the pegasi light therapy glasses.
The pegasi 2 glasses and app is like an intermediate between AYO light therapy glasses and Luminette light therapy glasses app. This is unlike the Ayo glasses that you can’t use without the app, and unlike the luminette light therapy glass that doesn’t connect the app. Go here to read our full review of the pegasi 2 light therapy glass.
Case or no Case
The Ayo light therapy glasses comes with a hard shell case for storage and traveling. The case has a charging port so that the ayo light therapy glasses case will be charged. The ayo glasses is charged inside the case. So, there is a small pin inside the case that connects to the glasses. Once you place the glasses inside the case, the glasses automatically starts charging as long as the case is charged.
The case can be used as a power-bank back up battery for the glasses. The ayo light therapy glasses charge without the case. But having a case that can be charged using a micro-usb cable, and can be used to charge the glasses is an absolute game changer. Go here to read the full review of AYO light therapy glass.
The Luminette light therapy glass comes with its case for storage and traveling. You cannot charge the glass from the case. The case has a pouch where you can store your charging cable for the glasses when you are traveling. The case is a nice to have, but is no where as impressive as the Ayo light therapy cases. Go here to read our full review of the Luminette light therapy glasses.
Unfortunately, the pegasi 2 light therapy glasses does not come with a case. I wish the pegasi glasses has a hard shell case or any case as a matter of fact. Go here to read our full review of the pegasi 2 light therapy glass.

How to use Ayo, Luminette, and Pegasi light therapy glasses
Using the Ayo light therapy glass and app is quit easy and simple. You have to download the app and connect the glasses to the app via bluetooth. After this connection is established, then you can start using the Ayo light therapy glasses.
Everything about the glass is controlled from the app. From turning the glass on/off, to programming the glass usage cycle, to choosing light intensity. All of that is done through the app.
When you first receive the Luminette light therapy glass, it is recommended to charge it for 5 hours initially. Unlike the pegasi 2, you only need to press the on/off button once.
Pressing the power button multiple times will allow you to select the intensity of your light and length of time for your session. And again, there are three intensity levels at 45 minutes/500 Lux, 30 minutes/1000 LUX, 20 minutes/1500 Lux.
Double tapping the on/off button on the right side of the frame turns the glass on. The glass turns off automatically after 30 minutes of use. After downloading the pegasi light therapy app, register/sign in, and then follow the onscreen instructions to connect the app to your glasses via bluetooth. You can use the glass without connecting it to the app.
