Not all tinted lenses are created equal. TheraSpecs precision-tinted eyewear prevent and relieve the headaches, migraines, and eyestrain commonly experienced while looking at computer and device screens. They work by filtering the wavelengths of light that are most likely to cause these issues and help with both LCD and LED computer screens. Screens emit notoriously high levels of blue light, which research shows causes the most pain response in people who are sensitive to light. TheraSpecs block up to 25 times more blue light than other computer glasses.1 Alleviate your office headache with TheraSpecs so you can be even more productive at home or in the workplace.
TheraSpecs computer glasses and LCD monitors
LCD computer monitors use a fluorescent bulb to light the liquid crystal panel that we see. All fluorescent lights pulse and while this pulsing is faster than we can see, research has shown our brains still detect it. This pulsing can trigger migraines, headaches, eyestrain, and other issues. For this type of monitor, TheraSpecs protect your eyes and brain by filtering the wavelengths that have the worst pulsing.
TheraSpecs computer glasses and LED monitors
LED computer monitors are actually LCD monitors but are lit by LEDs instead of fluorescent bulbs. They have two potential problems. First, LED-lit screens are very bright in the blue part of the spectrum that is most likely to trigger or worsen headaches, migraines, and eyestrain. TheraSpecs’ precision-tinted lenses filter these wavelengths to provide relief.
Second, LEDs can only be completely on or completely off. To simulate any brightness less than 100%, they must pulse on and off. This means that dimming these screens causes an invisible flicker, but unlike fluorescents this is across all colors. If you find your LED-lit LCD bothers you, try keeping the brightness at 100% to stop this flicker. If that's uncomfortably bright, first try adjusting your computer’s white balance to make the light warmer or use a program like f.lux, which automatically changes the white balance according to the time of day. TheraSpecs can also help cut the brightness—and the blue light—but don’t use sunglasses! Dark lenses make you more sensitive to light when worn indoors and your body adapts to the darkness.
