This is the visor that provides therapeutic light to counteract the effects of fatigue, jet lag, and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Unlike static devices that require one stare into a lamp, this lightweight, portable unit is worn on the head, enabling use anywhere. Its three white and three red LEDs emit 800 and 80 lux respectively, providing daylight spectrum light in the amount recommended by the National Institute of Health. This light therapy blocks the release of the sleep hormone melatonin, clinically proven to result in increased energy and alertness. Optimal when worn for 20-30 minutes in the morning, you can alternate between white and red light therapy (equally effective) with a press of a button. Its tilting LED panel and adjustable strap provide optimal light placement and a comfortable fit; allows use with glasses. Includes travel pouch and three AAA batteries. 6" L x 4" W x 3/4" D. (12 oz.)

I have only been using my visor for a week but so far I am very happy with it.

I bought this as a gift for my elderly mom who is very happy to have it. She used to be very active outdoors and enjoyed the benefits of natural light all year. Since she cannot go outside as much as she used to, she feels the effects of SAD. She says she likes this product, especially on cloudy days. She has been using it for about 3 weeks. If she feels benefits after a few more weeks I will change my rating to 5 stars because this product enables her to move freely around the house while wearing it.

Can't tell yet...
from Knoxville, TN
...if this will make a difference. The white light doesn't seem all that bright; the red light doesn't feel all that magical, either. Not sure anything can help with SAD but a long mid-winter trip to Florida. But the product seems made well enough. I'm hoping that with daily use it will provide some relief from SAD.

light therapy visor

from Burlington, VT
This thing is great! I'm a night nurse living in very overcast and cold vermont.. and don't have a ton of time when I'm working a series of shifts to squeeze in sun/happy light time. With this thing I wake up and wear it while I get ready for work. I've noticed a difference in my mood and it helps me feel more awake before my shift starts. It's on the spendy side but I use it way more than our stationary happy light just because it's so convenient. Plus, the angle of the light hits the correct receptors in the eye no matter if I'm sitting still or walking around..If you suffer from winter blues I'd definitely recommend this visor (and walks outside and vitamin d )
very nice light therapy unit
I use this unit every morning while I make and eat my breakfast. It is so convenient and easy to use. Thanks Hammacher for another great find.
