People who live in countries and cities that suffer from long, drawn-out winters can benefit from the Light Therapy Glasses by Troy Hudson, a student at Drexel University. Although not the first of its kind, it is certainly a much more refined design. It embraces a stylish frame while still being able to incorporate all of the important elements that help to combat the mood swings associated with the Season Affective Disorder (SAD).

The Light Therapy Glasses by Troy Hudson emit a constant beam that simulates sunlight into the periphery of the wearer's vision. This helps to trick the brain into thinking it is getting as much sunlight as it would in the middle of summer. What makes the glasses special is that it helps throughout the duration of an entire day.
