Questions or Problems? We gotchu!
WHAT DO THE AURAS FEEL LIKE?
AT FIRST, IT IS UNIQUE TO YOU. INTENSE FOR SOME, BUT SUBTLE FOR OTHERS.
OVER TIME IT BALANCES TO BE POTENT BUT NOT OVERWHELMING.
NOT AS SUBTLE AS CBD, BUT NOT AS INTENSE AS TAKING A SHOT TEQUILA :)
DO THE AURAS WORK INDOORS?
YEP! INSIDE AND OUTSIDE, DAY OR NIGHT.
THE STRONGER THE LIGHTING ENVIRONMENT, THE STRONGER THE EFFECT THOUGH.
Do Halochrome Lenses have UV protection?
Yep! They also have anti-glare, anti-scratch and water resistant coatings.
ABOUT THE STUDIES
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
HALOCHROME LENSES ARE DEVELOPED BASED ON YEARS OF ZEISS R&D INTO BIOCHROM TECHNOLOGY. THE TECHNOLOGY WAS TESTED AND VALIDATED IN SEPARATE STUDIES AT TWO TOP SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH UNIVERSITIES IN EUROPE.
✦ THE BEHAVIOR & BRAINLAB AT IULM UNIVERSITY IN MILAN, ITALY
✦ THE VISION SCIENCE LAB AT EBERHARD KARLS UNIVERSITY IN TUEBINGEN, GERMANY
PARTICIPANTS WERE PUT THROUGH A SERIES OF OVER A DOZEN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED AND STANDARDIZED TESTS THAT TRACK EMOTION, CONCENTRATION, RELAXATION, AROUSAL, SLEEPINESS, AND MORE.
DATA WAS CAPTURED, TRACKED & ANALYZED WITH:
EEGs, FMRIs, ECGs, PPDs, SCR, HRV, RR, EMG, eye and gaze tracking and more.

What are the Auras made out of?
Only the best!
Premium Japanese Acetate. Gold plated German hinges & temple cores.
Halochrome Lenses are Italian and made out of a special polyamide material. They also have anti-glare, anti-scratch and water resistant coatings on them.
CAN I WEAR AURAS WHILE DRIVING?
UNFORTUNATELY THESE ARE NOT APPROVED FOR USE WHILE DRIVING AS THE EFFECTS CAN BE INTENSE.
HOW LONG CAN I WEAR THE AURAS?
LIKE ALL SUNGLASSES, IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO GIVE YOUR EYES A SHORT BREAK EVERY 45 MINUTES OR SO. BUT NO REASON YOU CAN'T WEAR THEM AS LONG AS YOU LIKE!
CAN I GET AURAS WITH MY PRESCRIPTION?
NOT AT THE MOMENT, MAYBE IN THE FUTURE THOUGH.
Do they have UV protection?
They have 100% UV protection from the front. We also added an expensive anti-glare coating to the backside which helps block some (but not all) UV from bouncing back into the eyes.
HOW MUCH DO SHIPPING & RETURNS COST?
$7 SHIPPING via UPS in the US. $5 Restocking fee on returns.
HOW DO I PROCESS A RETURN?
EMAIL support@FUTUREMOOD.COM AND We will give you a prepaid return label that you can use to ship the items back to us. Once the items are received we will issue a full refund.
FOR OVER 170 YEARS ZEISS SCIENTISTS HAVE BEEN PUSHING THE LIMITS OF WHAT'S POSSIBLE IN OPTICS.
ZEISS LENSES FILMED THE MOON LANDING AND ARE REPLACING THE HUBBLE TELESCOPE. THEIR REVOLUTIONARY FILM AND CAMERA LENSES HAVE WON THREE ACADEMY AWARDS.
ZEISS HAS ALSO HELPED THE WORLD SEE BETTER WITH COUNTLESS EYEWEAR INVENTIONS LIKE ANTI-REFLECTIVE COATINGS AND MORE.
HEADQUARTERS & FACTORIES
FOUNDED AND BASED IN GERMANY, WITH A MAJOR OFFICE IN ITALY FOCUSED ON SUNGLASSES.
ZEISS OWNS FACTORIES IN GERMANY, ITALY, CHINA & THE U.S.
HALOCHROME LENSES ARE MANUFACTURED IN A STATE-OF-THE-ART FACTORY IN ITALY.
DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?
NOT AT THE MOMENT :(
BUT WE WILL BEGIN SHIPPING INTERNATIONALLY SOON. EMAIL YOUR NAME AND COUNTRY TO INTERNATIONAL@FUTUREMOOD.COM IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE NOTIFIED.
HOW DO AURAS FIT? CAN I MAKE ADJUSTMENTS?
BUILT TO LAST:
OUR FRAMES ARE THICK & CURVY LIKE A BENTLEY. THAT MEANS THEY AREN'T THE LIGHTEST, BUT DAMN DO THEY TURN HEADS!
WEAR THEM IN:
LIKE A GREAT PAIR OF JEANS, THEY CAN FIT A BIT TIGHT AT FIRST BUT WILL ADAPT TO YOU OVER TIME.
OR GET THEM ADJUSTED:
DON'T WANT TO WAIT AND WEAR THEM IN? GET THEM ADJUSTED AT ALMOST ANY OPTICAL SHOP IN JUST A COUPLE OF MINUTES.
THERE AREN'T NOSE PADS FOR LOW NOSE BRIDGE PROFILES – BUT WE WILL OFFER THEM SOON THOUGH!
OUR PRODUCTS ARRIVED FROM CHINA IN MID-JANUARY RIGHT AS THEY STARTED LOCKING DOWN THE COUNTRY.
SINCE DAY ONE WE HAVE GONE – AND WILL CONTINUE TO GO – ABOVE AND BEYOND IN ENSURING THE SAFETY OF OUR STAFF & CUSTOMERS:
✦ QUARANTINED INITIAL SHIPMENT FOR 2 WEEKS
✦ CLEANED ALL FRAMES WHILE WEARING PPE
✦ QUARANTINED EVERYTHING AGAIN FOR AN ADDITIONAL 5 WEEKS

Private Restock FAQ
When are these shipping?
Now! Ships via UPS from our warehouse within 12-72 hours of ordering.
What's my spot in the waitlist line?
Access to the private restock is based on the order you joined the waitlist for each product. But act quickly, new groups of waitlist members are being invited every 48 hours.
How do you access the Private Restock?
Through the links in the email (click the photo or text link). These product pages aren't listed publicly on our site. Your discounts are applied automatically at checkout.
What if you're on the waitlist for other styles too?
You will get a separate email for each style when it's your turn. We have limited amounts available and are working through each product's waitlist in the order you signed up.
Can you order multiple pairs?
Totally! You can order up to 5 pairs of a style as soon as you get that product's private restock email.
Should I wait for other styles to place an order? Or place multiple orders?
We recommend placing multiple orders and definitely not waiting — we have way bigger waitlists than stock.
How big is the waitlist?
Around 10,000 beautiful souls.
How do mood-enhancing lenses work?
Similar to how blue light blockers help you sleep at night — but more potent & advanced technologically.
Scientists at Zeiss invented the field of optics 150 years ago, and their lenses even filmed the moon landing.
They spent part of the past decade in R&D, hooking volunteers up to all kinds of sensors and tests, mapping out how different spectrums of light and color signals react in your body and mind.
To dial in the effects they discovered, Zeiss spent years fine-tuning the lenses secret sauce — a combo of filter coatings, unique materials, and color amplification — to trigger specific levels of the desired reactions.
The effects were tested and proven at two separate leading European research universities.
