Disturbances of the rhythm of our internal clock can often be managed with light therapy to readjust the timing of sleep and wakefulness. People with a delayed sleep-phase should have exposure to light in the early morning. Light exposure in the late evening is used for people with an advanced sleep-phase. A medical eye exam should be performed before light therapy is started.
