Learn how TheraSpecs lenses block the harmful wavelengths of fluorescent lighting and reduce the negative effects of its invisible pulsing, in order to provide protection and relief.
Fluorescent lights can trigger migraines, cause headaches and eyestrain, and worsen light-sensitive conditions like post-concussion syndrome and others. In fact, studies have shown they can double the rate of office headaches and frequency of migraine attacks.1TheraSpecs® fluorescent light glasses provide fast, effective relief by filtering out the most harmful wavelengths that worsen these symptoms and reducing the negative effects of invisible fluorescent pulsing.
Our customers prefer the relief and protection of TheraSpecs over typical blue light glasses for their fluorescent light-triggered migraine attacks, headaches, and eye sensitivity. Here are some of their experiences:

How do TheraSpecs Glasses Protect You from Fluorescent Lights?
Fluorescent lights pulse faster than we can consciously see but the brain still picks up that pulsing. People who are sensitive to this pulsing stimulation can feel sick because of it.1 TheraSpecs are therapeutic glasses that combat fluorescent light sensitivity by filtering out the wavelengths of light where the pulsing is concentrated. They help protect the eyes and brain as well as prevent the headaches, migraines, and other problems that fluorescent lights can cause.
Fluorescent lights also emit harmful blue wavelengths (480-520nm) that research shows can trigger or worsen light-sensitive conditions like migraine, brain injuries, and photophobia.2 This is the part of the light spectrum that TheraSpecs concentrates on filtering. In addition, TheraSpecs are available with ultra-lightweight, flexible frames that also feature enhanced protection designed specifically to protect from fluorescent lighting from all sides.
Two TheraSpecs lens options are available for your sensitivity to fluorescent lights:
TheraSpecs FL-Pro™ maximizes the filtering power of FL-41 to remove the most harmful wavelengths of light emitted by fluorescents and reduce symptoms triggered by their invisible pulsing. Shop FL-Pro Lenses ➜
TheraSpecs FL-Blend™ also uses FL-41 and balances the filtering of triggering light with a less noticeable tint to provide meaningful relief for symptoms brought on by fluorescent lighting. Shop FL-Blend Lenses ➜
Both of these lens options also offer excellent protection for screens, LEDs and other artificial light sources.
Research shows that TheraSpecs:
Reduce headaches and eyestrain caused by fluorescent exposure3
Reduce migraine attacks by as much as 74 percent4
Lessen other symptoms triggered by fluorescents, including dizziness, blurry vision and more
Relieve painful light sensitivity and photophobia
Are preferred by 78% of light-sensitive people over other light-filtering glasses5
