Re-timer, as it is called is a pair of sunglasses that uses light to reset the body clock by working on the circadian rhythms. This device promises to be a big boon in beating jet lag and helping shift workers to wake up on time and remain more alert.

The glasses are extremely user friendly and comfortable to wear. They can be worn while at work or even at home.   This product is available for purchase online and is priced at $249.

"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," Professor Lack said.
