Chronic migraine struck Megan from Texas when she was just 13 years old. Daily attacks became the norm for her, so much so that when the pain became too overbearing at school, she would press her face against the hallway floor for some cooling relief. Not surprisingly this took a significant toll on her body and her adolescence—with very little insight as to why it happened.
Fast forward two decades, and Megan began to recognize the role that bright lights—particularly fluorescents—played in the onset of her migraine attacks. They may not be solely responsible for her migraine-related pain, but they certainly have a strong negative influence. As she described it, even a quick trip into the grocery store would make her eyes start feeling like they were vibrating, and by the time she returned home an attack would form.
Armed with this newfound understanding, she knew she had to do something. Megan began seeking out remedies that might improve her photophobia, and this led her to try TheraSpecs precision-tinted glasses.
After just a few weeks of use, she started to notice a major difference in her symptoms. Even in those times when a migraine episode would start to develop, she would put on her Keaton-style TheraSpecs and feel their calming relief start to take effect.
Of course, it can be difficult not to look in the rearview mirror and think about everything that chronic migraine has taken from her, but she also recognizes that she can now move forward in a way that she was not able to before.
While we can’t give back those past moments and activities, we are proud that our glasses can give Megan and so many others more memories with less pain going forward.
