TheraSpecs® Computer and Screen Sensitivity Glasses
Learn how TheraSpecs provide enhanced protection from computer, device, and TV screens by blocking a wide range of the harmful wavelengths of light.
Digital screens can negatively impact our eyes and brains in a number of ways, from causing acute irritation or pain to aggravating light-sensitive conditions like migraine and post-concussion syndrome. Eye strain, visual fatigue and pain, and blurry vision are just a handful of symptoms that can result from screen use, and it can even interfere with sleep.1
TheraSpecs® computer and screen glasses provide fast, effective relief by targeting the most harmful wavelengths to reduce the negative effects of screen use and provide more relief than other glasses marketed for screen use. In fact, 94% of customers tell us that TheraSpecs are among the best or even better than anything else they’ve tried for screen use.2
Customers with and without an underlying health condition love wearing TheraSpecs when using their devices—whether they are being productive at work or enjoying some personal scroll time. Here are just a few who rave about their experiences:

How do TheraSpecs Glasses Protect You from Screens?
Avoiding screens in modern life is impossible—even if you aren’t using a device or computer, screens are all around, from car displays to ads in grocery stores and even when checking in at the doctor’s office. Screens expose us to high levels of blue light and the consequences are all too familiar: eye strain, headaches and migraine attacks, photophobia, disrupted sleep, and general discomfort. In fact, researchers estimate that up to 90% of people have visual symptoms after prolonged screen time from computers.3
For those already grappling with health conditions exacerbated by light, like migraine, dry eye, or concussion, screens pose an even greater challenge. Research indicates that the wavelengths of light that screens emit in high amounts can cause pain and other symptoms, making the need for effective protection essential.4
As if that were not enough, many LCD and LED screens emit an invisible pulsing or flicker that our brains pick up even when our eyes cannot.5 That has been shown to aggravate a wide range of symptoms like headaches and light sensitivity, especially for those who are already sensitive.
With such a threat posed by our devices, a number of TheraSpecs lens options are available to help you manage sensitivity to screens:
TheraSpecs Flex for Screen-Triggered Discomfort
If you seek relief from screen-induced discomfort, even without a light-sensitive condition, TheraSpecs Flex is your ideal choice. Its barely-there tint provides relief in a subtle lens and blocks significantly more blue light compared to other glasses marketed for screen use.
TheraSpecs FL-Pro™ for Maximum Screen Sensitivity Relief
If you experience strong sensitivity to screens or have a health condition linked to light sensitivity, turn to TheraSpecs FL-Pro for maximum relief from screens. This FL-41-tinted lens blocks the highest levels of the problematic light identified by research for the most comprehensive relief.
TheraSpecs FL-Blend™ for Screen Sensitivity in a More Subtle Lens
FL-Blend also uses FL-41 to target the wavelengths of light that research has found to cause the most pain and other symptoms when people with light sensitivity use screens. The tint is more subtle than FL-Pro to strike a nice balance of protection in a less noticeable lens.
TheraSpecs Contrast HEV™ for Increased Screen Contrast and General Eye Health
Enhance contrast for sharper vision and safeguard your overall eye health with TheraSpecs Contrast HEV. This option is designed to optimize visual acuity and protect against potential long-term effects of screen exposure.
TheraSpecs Sleep to Protect from Screens for Improved Sleep
Prioritize your sleep with TheraSpecs Sleep by shielding your eyes from disruptive screen light, preventing interference with melatonin production and promoting a more restful night's sleep.
In addition to offering excellent protection from screens, these lens options also protect from fluorescent lights, LEDs and other artificial light sources.
Research shows that TheraSpecs:
Reduce headaches and eyestrain caused by screen exposure
Reduce migraine attacks by as much as 74 percent
Lessen other symptoms triggered by screens, including dizziness, blurry vision and more
Relieve painful light sensitivity and photophobia
Improve circadian rhythms and sleep
Increase contrast sensitivity and improve visual acuity

TheraSpecs can be purchased quickly, easily, and securely through our online store. Whether you live in the US, UK, Australia, Canada or just about anywhere else in the world, we are able to get our computer and screen glasses right to your door.

Custom frames and glasses with prescription
We know how important it is to also be able to see your computer or device screen clearly, so we offer fitover styles like Original WearOver and Tatum WearOver for people who already wear prescription glasses. TheraSpecs lenses can be made with your prescription too—either in a standard frame or one you already own. If you need readers, they can also be made with our therapeutic lenses.
TheraSpecs screen glasses bring relief to 90% of our customers, but we understand that every brain is different. If they don’t improve your symptoms of screen sensitivity, you can always exchange them for another lens type or return your undamaged non-prescription pair back to us for a refund within 60 days.
