Luminette V3 - SAD Light Therapy Glasses - FAQ

What is Luminette?

Luminette is a wearable "light box" - it was designed with your comfort in mind - it’s light, weighing in at 2.4 oz.

The fact that you can simply wear it, just like your favorite sun-glasses, means that you can go about your everyday tasks, and still benefit from this light therapy we have been talking about - you don’t need to be tethered to one of these light boxes which forces you to sit, immobile, within a foot or so of these devices, in their glare.

Luminette saves you time, every day-about 30 minutes, in fact, adds up to quite a bit, in a year.

Is Luminette  patented?

Luminette® uses a patented innovative optical technology: placed above eyesight, its beam of light is angled top-down, just as happens naturally under blue skies and allows users to keep their vision free.

How does it work?

White light enhanced with blue light for greater effectiveness. Luminette® emits a safe blue-enriched white light peaked at 468 nm. This wavelength is proven to be the most effective at triggering the body's positive response to sunlight. Luminette LED’s have been specifically selected to avoid light close to UV ; these LED’s emit only beneficial light.
Note that Luminette is deemed "eye-safe" according to international standard CEI 62471.
