The retimer light therapy glass and luminette light therapy glass both help you with improving your sleep. They help to reset your internal clock which is also known as your circadian rhythm. They both help you get a good night sleep by emitting lights that is absorbed into the supra-chiasmic nucleus.

This light that is absorbed help to lower your melatonin levels in the morning which consequently cause you to stay asleep. As a result, later in the day when you are ready to sleep, your melatonin levels will rise again and allow you to fall asleep.

Retimer light therapy glasses and luminette light therapy glasses help you with jet lag by reducing the amount of time it takes for you to recover from jet lag. Jet lag is primarily caused by the difference in time zones. Using light therapy a couple of days before your flight and a couple of days after your flight will help you to stay awake when you need to stay awake and fall asleep whenever you want to sleep.

Retimer light therapy glass and luminette light therapy glass both have apps that let you schedule your travel time. When you schedule your travel time with the app, the app will tell you when to wear the light therapy glasses and how long to wear them. It will tell you when to wear the glasses before, during, and after your long flight.
