Human-like beings have walked the earth for two million years. ‘Modern’ man has been around for about 200,000 year and for the past 300 years, artificial light has been a part of our existence. Evolution has given us a complex body that can adapt to its surroundings and then controls it. We can also influence the effect of day and night on our bodies.
The human body reacts to the blue tint of the morning light and the red which comes with sunset. At daybreak, all our internal systems start up. Once the sun goes down, our bodies start preparing for rest and sleep. Digestion and other body systems switch into night mode.
People who divert from the usual day and night rhythm, travels to different time zones, or has inconsistent sleep patterns, often get uncomfortable feedback from their body. Our biological clocks are no longer in sync with the day. We can’t always keep up with the rapid social and technological evolution of our lives. Light therapy is the solution to this situation. Science has proven that the body gets energy when we see the correct blue light.
Light therapy is the solution to this situation. Science has proven that the body gets energy when we see the correct blue light. When it comes to energy, you may be sabotaging yourself by wearing sunglasses all day. The sunglasses block out the blue light and as a result, we have less energy. The Propeaq light glasses help restore balance by allowing the blue glasses to give us the right amount of sunlight. If the sun isn’t available, active LEDs in the glasses give the body extra energy.
When its time to wind down and get ready for a good night’s sleep, swap out the blue lenses for the red ones. These block all the energizing blue light which causes the body to start a higher production of the sleep hormone, melatonin. Propeaq light glasses are the only portable system for optimal light therapy.
There are 2 models of Propeaq light glasses. The effectiveness of both glasses is the same. The Basic model is considerably simplified on 2 points compared to the Premium model.
The new Propeaq Basic model has been adapted in various parts compared to the Premium model. The new model has:

The Propeaq light therapy glasses make it possible to apply sufficient blue light in 30 minutes per day. Those are 30 minutes in which the user can continue to work.

Propeaq’s blue light has a wavelength of 468 nanometers at an intensity of only 35 lux. The LEDs are located 1.5 cm from the eye and are harmless in normal use *. One administration of 30 minutes of active blue light per 24 hours is often sufficient. The light glasses do not have to be worn continuously for a long time. For those who already wear glasses, there are solutions with clip-on glasses or even prescription lenses. Thanks to a close collaboration with a renowned internationally operating lens manufacturer, Propeaq prescription glasses are also available from specialist opticians.
* For diseases of the retina, for example macular degeneration, we recommend using the light glasses. Insufficient research has been done into possible damage in these situations. Not enough research has yet been conducted into possible harmfulness in these situations.
