Red light goggles are devices that emit red light and are worn over the eyes. They are used for various purposes, such as:
Protecting the eyes from bright or harmful light sources, such as tanning lamps, lasers, or UV rays.
Enhancing night vision by preserving the production of rhodopsin, a pigment that helps the eyes adapt to low-light conditions.
Improving skin health by stimulating collagen production, blood circulation, and reducing inflammation.
The development history of red light goggles is not very clear, but some sources suggest that they were first used by pilots and astronomers to improve their night vision. Later, they were adopted by other professionals and enthusiasts who needed to see in the dark, such as hunters, photographers, or stargazers. Nowadays, red light goggles are also available for consumers who want to benefit from their therapeutic effects on the skin or mood.
