Many TheraSpecs customers come to us at a pivotal moment in the life cycle of their condition; they’re frustrated, scared, and often are quite literally in pain when they search for something—anything—that can give them relief. This is what Savannah was experiencing prior to learning of TheraSpecs as a resource for her light sensitivity.
"I had an increase in migraines a few weeks leading up to my purchase," she said. "I was stressed, upset, and worried over the fact that they wouldn’t stop. I was stressed that I'd have to miss days at my new job."
Savannah’s fears are completely understandable, given the stigma surrounding migraine, particularly in the workplace. In fact, people with migraine generally feel less secure and confident in their jobs and often work through their attacks and symptoms. Reasonable accommodations for migraine can be scarce and difficult to get approved. Some even leave the workforce altogether as a result of their migraine disease.
This is further compounded by the perceptions of others on the job; one survey of HR professionals found that 40% report that supervisors within their organization believe their employees with migraine are “faking it” and don’t believe that it is a valid reason to miss work. No wonder Savannah felt added stress!
Thankfully, she had a supportive partner throughout this process. He spent all of his free time looking, reading and researching on different options that could calm her attacks. He eventually came across TheraSpecs, and after some gentle coaxing, Savannah was ready to try them. Then they arrived, and her whole world changed.
Savannah uses TheraSpecs to help minimize her migraine attacks and symptoms. Here she is wearing the Winslow (black) frame with indoor lenses.
"I put them on and the relief and comfort were instantaneous. I was beyond thrilled, excited, shocked and just so happy, she said. She is now able to work comfortably without any light-triggered symptoms; she can watch TV and movies at home and play video games without any issues from the screen too. TheraSpecs have established themselves to be an especially effective tool for screen use because they cut down on the most triggering blue light that emanates from these devices.
The ultimate pièce de résistance: Savannah has not had a single attack since she started wearing her TheraSpecs!
"I haven’t had a single migraine since having these glasses. I haven’t gotten a headache from looking at my screen. My eyes haven’t been tired. It’s honestly almost ridiculous and unreal, but I’m so thankful it is real."
Now, she is spreading the word to other people with migraine and light sensitivity because she knows firsthand how powerful they can be in the toolkit. And we are so appreciative of her determination to help others find the relief and protection she has experienced!
