TheraSpecs Haven Migraine Glasses with Indoor and Polarized Outdoor Lenses by Haven TheraSpecs

Did you know that certain types of light can be a problem for some people and can be the cause of very painful migraines?

Migraines are thought to be one of the most common conditions caused by light sensitivity.

So if you could treat the light sensitivity condition perhaps you can stop a migraine occurrence in its tracks? Wouldn’t this be wonderful!

Keeping The Bad Light Out!

But how do you keep this bad light out without hiding in a dark room with your eyes shut? So many people will tell you that when they have a migraine onset all they can do is to go into a dark room, close all the curtains and blinds, lay down in bed with their eyes shut and hopefully sleep it off or wait for their migraine to go away.

But when there are things to be done, work to do, or children to take care of this is not always an option and perhaps may not be the best action to take.

light-photophobia-migraine-dark-room

If you have a sensitivity to light you cannot always hide away in the dark and its thought that if you do block out the light consistently that over time your light sensitivity may actually become worse.

I know that when I am getting a migraine and that light can be a cause of sensitivity to my eyes, especially as I am descending into the beginnings of a migraine, and this light is really painful to my eyes, if I could do something to stop it right then and there I know I would take this action before it gets any worse.

Have You Heard of Light Sensitivity Glasses?

I have only recently heard of glasses that can help with light sensitivity triggers in migraines and I decided to research this and see if they are of benefit to those that have used them. So when I heard about them I decided to look further into the reviews on TheraSpecs a fairly popular brand of light-sensitive migraine glasses and I researched the customer responses on this product, and if those using them are getting positive results. This will hopefully give me an answer to my question. Will they be helpful to me?

Firstly, What Is Light Sensitivity?

Most people are sensitive to a dramatic change in light, such as walking out of a dark house or room into a bright sunny day, and it can take some time for your eyes to adjust.

Not all people get migraines due to this changing light environment. Some people have a very high sensitivity to light and this is called Photophobia or Photosensitivity. It can be caused by different types of light such as natural bright sunlight, bright lighting, artificial or fluorescent lighting, computers and screens, or flickering light bulbs.

Our computers, tablets, TV and smartphone screens all tend to omit a tinted blue light. This tinted blue light is thought to be one of the worst for those people with light sensitivity and migraine onset. If you filter this blue light through yellow, orange or red lenses it can be of some relief to those with light sensitivity issues.

TheraSpecs Customer Ratings TheraSpecs-Customer-Review

On the TheraSpecs website, there are over 1500 reviews giving the migraine glasses a rating of 5 stars. Many people wrote how they had suffered migraines for years and that these glasses have been a wonderful help with their migraine management or about their use on computers and how these glasses had made a difference to them. Not all customers were claiming to have become migraine-free and as we all know this can be due to different migraine triggers for different people. It states on their site that 96% of the reviewers were giving 4-5 star ratings. These were all pretty high ratings promoting these glasses.

There were very few negative reviews from customers on the site also. I found only 13 reviews of 1-2 stars, which is pretty minimal compared to the positive feedback. Most of the negative feedback was more about website issues with ordering or how to do payment etc. A couple of customers are saying that the glasses don’t fit every face shape properly or didn’t work for them. The customer services replied to reviews including these negative reviews regarding any faulty glasses to help them resolve their issues.

On Amazon, 76% of customers who purchased these glasses had given them a 5 stars rating. These people all talked about their reduction in migraines and eye strain. There were some negative reviews where some people did not get the relief they had hoped for. But as we know, not every migraine sufferer has the same triggers and it is possible these people may have another migraine associated trigger.

Do You Want to Know More About TheraSpecs?

TheraSpecs are created to block out certain tints of light that are known to be associated with triggering a migraine headache.

Indoor TheraSpecs

These are recommended for using indoors. They can be used for wearing while working under artificial lighting and fluorescent light. Also, have you ever noticed that while you are working on a computer that headaches can also become a problem? With more of us working daily on computers these glasses are also recommended for computer use.

TheraSpecs Indoor glasses are also recommended to use outdoors on cloudy and overcast days as there can still be significant glare from the clouds.

Outdoor TheraSpecs

These glasses are recommended for using outdoors and are polarised. The specs say that the lenses are 100% UVA/UVB blocking. This means that they should be really great for wearing outside on a really bright and sunny day or at the beach where you can get the glare from the water.

TheraSpecs say that they have helped at least 90% of their customers and are very helpful to most people that suffer from conditions that have symptoms of photophobia (light sensitivity).

Not everything works the same for every person, so these may not work for you. But my thoughts on this is if you don’t try, then you will probably never know if they are helpful for you.

Sunlight-Migraine-photophobiaQuality of TheraSpecs Glasses?

The images of this product look like a fairly stylish eye-wear accessory and are made of lightweight materials. They have a metal rim made of stainless steel and arms that look fashionable with a tortoise-shell design (other colours options may be available at the time of purchase). The nose pads are made of a silicone and are on an articulated hinge. The earpieces are flexible for comfort. The glasses design works for both men and women.

The protection is said to block a large percentage of the blue-green light that can be a trigger or symptom with a migraine headache, photophobia and other light-sensitivity conditions.

TheraSpecs have a returns policy that comes with their glasses: If you don’t like their glasses or do not experience the benefits, return them within 60 days for a full refund. Now that’s very helpful to know, so I can return them is they are not working or me.

Can TheraSpecs Glasses Help Me?

There is no exact answer as to whether TheraSpecs migraine glasses can help you with your light sensitivity migraines? But I can tell you that many of the personal reviews of people who have purchased and used these specs are receiving some wonderful benefits by using these glasses to help reduce their migraines.

Every person is different and their migraine triggers are not all the same so there is no one product that will work the same on every single person out there. Some statistics are suggesting that around 80-90% of migraine sufferers have a problem with light sensitivity either as a trigger or as a symptom from a migraine. I think that these are generally showing some great results in helping a person who suffers from light sensitivity migraines. Someone like myself.

Always Remember: Safety First

You should always consult your medical professional or an optometrist if you experience any sudden sensitivity to light or pain in or behind your eyes or migraine headaches. It is important to ensure that there is no other underlying cause to the onset of light sensitivity or migraine headaches.

  1. Thanks for writing about TeraSpecs Haven Migraine Glasses, your post captivated my interest to read as I haven’t come across glasses to ease migraine attacks before.
    I suffer quite a few migraines per week and as you mention, maybe it is the tinted blue light emitted from my computer screen, I’m not sure. I get severe auras that leave me sitting in a dark room until they disappear, usually about 30-60 minutes, after which follows a horrendous headache.
    I’ve never found an answer to why we get them – no one seems to understand what drives a migraine but they are horrible.
    Thanks again,
    Simon.

    • Hi Simon, Thank you for reading my article and for your comments. I too have only recently heard of these glasses that filter the bad light that can be a cause for Migraines. With so much time spend on technology these days anything that can help us with this lifestyle challenge is really worth looking into. Its important to find the underlying cause for a migraine, so that you can avoid triggers or find ways towards prevention. There are a number of triggers with migraines and you can find you migraine triggers by keeping a “Migraine Diary”. This will help you find what may be causing your migraine headaches. I found an app that I am currently trialling called “migraine buddy” that you can use to record the information surrounding your migraines or you can keep a manual health diary. I have written in here about ways to help find your migraine causes. https://migrainenaturalremedies.com/barometric-pressure-migraine-headaches or See my post of migraine triggers. It’s also important to see a medical professional if you are having headaches and migraines regularly to ensure there are no other underlying causes to these headaches. I hope you find some relief soon. Gratitude and blessings, Mary

  2. Never heard of such glasses before. Really good review you have here. I myself don’t suffer from the light sensitivity you mentioned in the review. But I wonder if I should get one of these TeraSpecs Haven Migraine Glasses since I sit in front of a computer all the time.
    Is there any benefit of having one of these if I don’t suffer from light sensitivity?

    • Hi Wei, Thank you for reading my post.
      TheraSpecs indoor glasses can definitely be used while working on computers or any other technology screens to reduce the bad light effects of eyestrain. The benefits of TheraSpecs will work for you by reducing bad light and are not just for those people who have light sensitivity (photophobia) and migraine headaches. They reduce the negative effects of flickering, artificial, or fluorescent lighting. These glasses can also be worn outside on a cloudy overcast day as well. Let me know if you have any further questions and I will be more than happy to help you find the answers. Kindest regards Mary

  3. This is a very good and well structured article. Thank you for your well researched statistical data. It really gives people a clear insight on the TheraSpecs and I think they are a large number of people who need this kind of information. I am not familiar with these myself but i would definitely consider even someone to check them out via your article. Please do keep up the work, I loved it. Thank you very much for this.

    • Hi Palm, Thank you for reading my Review. I always find it exciting to discover something new. I decided to research the light Sensitivity glasses after I heard about them to find out if they were able to help people like myself. After I heard of the benefits people were getting who have a sensitivity to light I just wanted to share this with other Migraine Sufferers so that they are aware of this natural remedy and may perhaps receive some benefit to their own health. Blessings and Gratitude Mary

  4. I must admit that this is the first time that I have read about Theraspecs in the treatment of Migraines. This must be a welcome relief for those that are highly sensitive to light.

    Luckily I don’t suffer bad migraines, but my best friend does and she does just want to get into a dark room and sleep it off when it happens. Maybe she doesn’t realize that she is sensitive to light.

    Are these specs similar to polaroids or are they made differently? I wear my polaroids even sometimes inside, as they do help for the glare. I don’t get headaches but my eyes are sensitive to bright light.

    Also do you need a prescription for these specs?

    • Hi There Michel, thanks for coming to my site and reading about TheraSpec glasses. These migraine glasses are different to normal sunglasses as they block out the shades of light that are know to be the cause of light sensitivity and migraines. Its been studied that going into a dark room with light-sensitivity and migraines is likely to make the condition worse over time. Perhaps have a look at my article on barometric pressure migraines as this too along with the weather can contribute to migraines https://migrainenaturalremedies.com/barometric-pressure-migraine. You don’t need a prescription to get TheraSpecs or Axon optics glasses these can be purchased through amazon. Axon Optics have a version of these glasses that can fit over prescription glasses. Axon Optics COVER-RX Migraine Glasses for Migraine Relief and Light Sensitivity Relief

      I hope i have answered your questions and this has been of some help to you and your friend, Any further questions please let me know.  Blessings and gratitude, Mary

  5. Hi There this is a very good site with lots of well researched information regarding a product that has many benefits for lots of people this is a well put together article, very professional.

    I am fortunate, i don’t suffer from migraine, but bright sunlight in the tropics always causes discomfort and where i live in Queensland Aus, sunglasses are recommended from an early age. I can see a very useful and comforting product here and a lot of people will be glad they found your site.

    Thanks for the wonderful information all the best Shane.

    • Hi Shane,
      Thanks for coming to my site and reading my post on TheraSpecs.
      I’m glad you enjoyed reading my article. If you are from Queensland Australia you would be used to dramatic weather changes such as thunderstorms, humidity and heat-waves. Light sensitivity can be part of that as well along with migraines during these dramatic changes in weather and air pressure changes. Perhaps you would also like to read my article on this. https://migrainenaturalremedies.com/barometric-pressure-migraine
      I have also lived in Queensland many years ago now and know that the humidity and storms can play havoc with migraine headaches in this part of the world. Best regards, Mary

  6. HI have a sensitivity to daylight and I wear my prescription sunglasses most of the time, How does Thera specs differ from sunglasses can you get them on prescription from am optician?

    Migraines can be such a horrible experience to go through and light can be a big issue. Of these glasses can help a person and ease the discomfort light brings to their eyes then thats great.

    Thanks for your review as I have never heard of these glasses before and will be looking into them further now for my own condition,

    • HI Darren, Thank you for your comments on my article. 

      TheraSpecs glasses are different to everyday sunglasses. They have been developed to block out the tints of light that are best known to be related to light sensitivity and migraine headaches. The problem with sunglasses is that they just shade the glare and don’t block out the shades of light that are known to cause light sensitivity problems. With the indoor glasses it is also similar to the outdoor to reduce glare and block the harmful light colours as well including light from blue screens. 

      There are the some similar glasses made by Axon Optics, also developed for migraine light sensitivity, and the frames do fit over most prescription glasses. You could have a look at these, they are featured in the Amazon Ads at the bottom of my article. https://migrainenaturalremedies.com/barometric-pressure-migraine ‎ or follow the link below.

      Axon Optics COVER-RX Migraine Glasses for Migraine Relief and Light Sensitivity Relief

      I would love to hear your feedback on the glasses if you proceed with purchasing and using them. If there is anything else I can help you with please let me know. 

      Thanks for reading and I hope you find some relief soon. Mary

  7. julienne murekatete

    Thank you for such a wonderful information about  TeraSpecs Haven Migraine Glasses . It is my first time to hear about such glasses and i found this post helpful. I most of time have migraine when i am using computer for 2 or 3 hours and i didn’t know that i could get  glasses which can prevent such horrible migraine.I have been taking pain killer drugs but i now know what to do. 

    thank you

    Julienne

    • Hi Julienne, Yes this is something I have just learn’t about recently and from my research I can see that many people are having positive results with using both the indoor and outdoor glasses. This is a wonderful investment into pain relief if you are a person who suffers from Light sensitivity. Its far better for your health than taking painkillers continuously which can be incredibly harmful to the body long term. Perhaps take a look at herbal remedies that can also help you with migraines as well. https://migrainenaturalremedie

      Blessing and gratitude always Mary

  8. Hi Mary

    Interesting review and I must say I have never heard of glasses that could reduce migraines and although I do not suffer, I am in front of a computer screen for more than a few hours. Luckily its not continuous, I take a break every hour and perhaps that is why I have not had migraine problems, however, I have always been meaning to purchase those anti-glare filters for my laptop just as a precaution. Now that I know about these cool looking glasses, I may purchase a pair for myself.

    • HI Roger, Thank you for reading my post about TheraSepecs glasses. 

      You are lucky to never have suffered migraines as they can be pretty debilitating if you do. In America its thought that possibly about 13% of the population may have suffered migraines at one time or another throughout their lives and if you know someone who may need help with this then you may like to suggest they come along to my website and have a look at the information I have been putting together for people like me who do get this condition. 

      These glasses are not just for migraines, they also can help with light sensitivity which includes the blue screen so if you think that they will help you they might be worth a try.

      Mary
