Available in Europe, the new light therapy glasses provide relief from seasonal affective disorder (SAD), sleep disorders and circadian rhythm issues (jet lag and shift work).

The wearable light therapy device was developed after four years of university research and clinical trials.

According to the firm, around 20 minutes of keeping Luminette will help to treat and prevent issues during months when sunlight is reduced.

The 1,500-lux blue-enriched white light of Luminette is output from LEDs, which reaches the diffraction lens and stimulates the retina, without affecting vision.

Lucimed managing director Eric Delloye said: "We’re thrilled to be bringing Luminette to the world and helping people that face health issues during the fall and winter months.

"We live in an active society and Luminette is designed to provide relief for people and their on-the-go lives."

The firm is also providing Luminette app, which generates biological clock rephasing programmes based on algorithms developed by the chronotherapist Roland Pec.

The programs comprise of chronobiological tools such as light exposure, avoidance of light, taking melatonin, sleep and others.
