Science of light and sleep
Your sleep–wake rhythm is naturally timed by sunlight. But working indoors and long winter months block much of the sun’s light from reaching you. As a result your sleep–wake rhythm can become disturbed, making it difficult to fall asleep and leaving you tired the next day. The light from Re-Timer can help you change your sleep–wake rhythm through morning or evening use. Your eyes detect the bright light and your body responds by signalling your brain to be awake and alert. This process also helps your body to understand when it’s time to sleep. Re-Timer sleep glasses help you maintain a consistent sleep–wake rhythm to optimise sleep quality. Read about the science and peer-reviewed trials from the sleep labs at Flinders University.
