The narrow band of green light emitted by the Allay Lamp was discovered by migraine researchers at Harvard Medical School. It is a slim spectrum of visible light that only triggers one specific set of light-sensitive receptors in the eye.
These receptors react less strongly to light than others, sending a smaller, softer electrical signal that works to calm the brain.

Based on these studies, doctors at leading headache centers across the country have begun to use narrow-band green light in their practices.
These neurologists use Allay when interviewing people who are light-sensitive, as well as a tool to help deescalate headaches.
Arrow-band green light isn't the only thing unique about Allay.
It was created through a rigorous design process with a former NASA engineer in order to make the light as pleasing as possible.
The light diffuses evenly across 360 degrees.
Allay features a matte finish that helps to dampen glare.
Even invisible flicker can irritate the eyes, so Allay was engineered to emit a consistent, steady glow.
And for the times when you want a regular lamp, just flip Allay over for a soft white light.
Your phone, computer, and other devices show colors by displaying a combination of different bands of light. These combinations include blue, yellow and other wavelengths outside the narrow green spectrum that activate other receptors in your eyes, causing irritation.
The Allay Lamp only emits a pure narrow band (just 20nm!) of green light. Its light doesn't include yellow, blue or other colors like you'd see in a screen or smart bulb, making it uniquely pleasing to the eyes and brain.
Our flagship Allay Lamp is uniquely soothing to your eyes and brain, even when you’re most sensitive to light. Discovered by a Harvard Medical School neuroscientist, Allay's patented band of light is calming during a migraine - or any time - helping you get back to reading, working, and being yourself.
