‘Green glow’ glasses that could stop jetlag

Re-Timer

(From Daily Mail) They are not the most stylish of eyewear, but Australian researchers say this strange device could mean the end of jetlag – and could even help teens get up in the morning.

Researchers have spent 25 years developing the £180 ‘re-timer’ glasses, which uses a green light that claims to be able to reset the body clock.

They say the gadget can help its wearer deal with working shifts, jetlag – and even just getting a good night’s sleep.

Known as Re-Timer, the device is worn like a pair of sunglasses and emits a soft green light onto the eyes.

Professor Leon Lack, Chief Inventor, said ‘The light from Re-Timer stimulates the part of the brain responsible for regulating the 24-hour body clock.

‘Body clocks or circadian rhythms influence the timing of all our sleeping and waking patterns, alertness, performance levels and metabolism.’

Photoreceptors in our eyes detect sunlight, signal our brain to be awake and alert, and set our rhythms accordingly.

These rhythms vary regularly over a 24-hour cycle.

‘However, this process is often impaired by staying indoors, travelling to other time zones, working irregular hours, or a lack of sunlight during winter months,’ said Professor Lack.
