The most convenient light therapy device on the market
Light therapy on the move Luminette is a portable and lightweight (just 2.2 oz.) pair of light therapy glasses, letting you go about your activities, while providing ideal light exposure. You don’t have to sit any more in front of a cumbersome light therapy lamp for 30 min but you can carry on with your daily routine while enjoying the benefits of the light.
How often should I use Luminette ?
We recommend using the Luminette once a day at wake-up.
How long does a session last ?
One session lasts from 20 to 45 minutes (depending on the light intensity you choose).
How long will it be before I notice the effects ?
The “boosting” effect of the Luminette is almost immediate. However it will take 4-7 days before noticing long-term results on mood and sleep cycles.

How does Luminette work ?
- Blue-enriched white light emitted by 8 LED enters the eye through a pattented diffraction system and penetrates the lower part of the retina, a zone rich in photoreceptors.
- Once activated the photoreceptors will send information via the optic nerve to the regulator of our biological clock (the suprachiasmatic nucleus).
- The supra-chiasmic nucleus reads this information and activating our body’s positive response to light: the pineal gland will stop secreting melatonin (the sleep hormone) and will start producing awakening hormones, like cortisol and dopamine. We can start the day full of energy.
