Migraine brains are incredibly sensitive to all kinds of light. The light and flicker from computers, fluorescent lights, CFLS and the sun can be absolutely brutal and debilitating. 

Research has shown that precision-tinted FL-41 lenses can filter the types of light that cause migraineurs problems. I wrote an article about this research at Migraine.com: Precision Tinted Lenses Help Reduce Migraine-Related Visual Disturbance. But until recently, it's been difficult to find an easy, reasonably priced way to access these lenses. Enter Theraspecs.



Theraspecs is the new venture of migraine and headache blogger Kerrie Smyres of The Daily Headache (and migraine.com) and her husband, Hart. The glasses came about because Kerrie was increasingly debilitated by light and computer sensitivity. So her awesome husband designed a pair of glasses to combat this, tested different tints until they found the right one and had them manufactured. They worked so well for Kerrie that she and Hart decided to make them available to migraineurs everywhere.

Kerrie and Hart were awesome enough to send me a pair to try, and I love them. The best way I can describe the feeling of sliding them on is to say that my eyes and brain exhaled. I honestly hadn't realized how much strain I was dealing with all the time until I felt it melt away in an instant.
