Theraspecs review: glasses to reduce migraine, photophobia, and eye strain

“TheraSpecs are precision tinted, thoughtfully designed eyewear that filter out the harmful light that causes eyestrain, headaches, and migraines.” [1]   They have backed up their product with “articles that delve into the effects of lighting as well as independent studies that have verified the benefits of the tint (they) use in every pair of TheraSpecs.”

I am a teacher and busy mom.  That means I spend a lot of time in fluorescent lights.  I teach under them, then go to the grocery store with them and suffer wherever I go. I have used them in stores, restaurants, my gym and more. “Fluorescent lights pulse very rapidly, even when working properly. That rate is too fast to see consciously. However, the brain can still pick up that pulsing as rapid signals from the nerves of the eye. Some repeating patterns, such as visibly flickering lights or even stripes of certain widths, can trigger headaches, eyestrain, migraines, and exhaustion. The pulsing is most intense at certain wavelengths.” [1]

theraspecs_logo_1418418998__87188Since I have been lucky enough to review TheraSpecs, I have worn them everywhere!  I use them in my classroom.  I use them when the lights are too much and also when the morning sun is shining in.  My TheraSpecs glasses provide enough protection so that I am not wearing super dark sunglasses but also am not squinting and suffering in the brightness.

TheraSpecs “uses a specialty tint that has distinct, known, and predictable light filtering properties. This is different than a typical tint where the specific filtering properties are unknown or vary with each lens application. Other glasses may appear to have a similar reddish tint. However, they do not focus on the specific parts of light that cause or exacerbate such problems as migraines, eyestrain, headaches, and exhaustion. But through (their) precision tint, (they) can ensure that each pair of TheraSpecs accurately filters that problematic light.” [2]

I have also used them while writing my migraine  blog , working on the computer and using my phone.  It has really helped.  According TheraSpecs, “this makes sense: the backlight in most LCD monitors and TVs is actually a small fluorescent light!” [1]

Besides being so helpful with my migraines, headaches, and photophobia, I really like the look and feel of TheraSpecs.  Glasses often times are uncomfortable and heavy on my face.  TheraSpecs are light weight, have flexible fit and wrap around coverage if needed.  The tint is nice for indoors being I don’t feel like they look like special need glasses or too dark sunglasses.  They provide the perfect combination of indoor glasses and protective eye wear.

Along with all of these wonderful attributes, I really like TheraSpecs as a company.  I always feel good about working with and buying from companies that really care about their clients.  Their customer service is very responsive and they have a 60 day full return policy.  They are dedicated to helping each individual and their specific need so that there is no reason to hesitate to buy.  I have invested in a lot of migraine related products over the years and knowing that I can try them and if they don’t work return them, is a great incentive to go for it!

So as a mom, teacher, migraine and photophobia sufferer that can’t hide from light all day, I recommend TheraSpecs!
