What customers are saying

Danny wearing FL-Pro TheraSpecs for TBI and Concussion

"I have been diagnosed with PTSD, TBI, and several other conditions to include sensitivity to light. These TheraSpecs allow me to live my life [without] the stress of being in areas with bright lights because bright lights affect my vision and make my headaches worse. Thank you to TheraSpecs for changing my LIFE!!"
-Danny, Virginia, wearing FL-Pro (extra) lenses

Paulette wearing FL-Pro TheraSpecs, Classic frame

"My post-concussion episode (three years after my concussion) has impacted my ability to post for my business. I could not watch my computer screen and my cell phone. But now with these glasses, I am making progress. Thank you!"
-Paulette, Nevada, wearing FL-Pro (extra) lenses

Rhonda wearing FL-Pro TheraSpecs, Audrey brown frame

"For the first time today I actually asked my son to turn the lights on in the kitchen for me while I was cooking. I haven’t said that in months. I was actually able to cook some eggs without squinting in normal overhead lighting with the help of these. Thank you for helping improve the quality of my life during this time."
-Rhonda, wearing FL-Pro (extra) lenses

Why TheraSpecs Improve Light Sensitivity after Concussion

The benefit of TheraSpecs glasses boils down to the therapeutic tint of their lenses. Each of our specialty lenses is designed to target a unique spectrum of light that research shows can negatively impact symptoms of concussion and brain injuries.

TheraSpecs FL-Pro™ maximizes the filtering power of FL-41 to remove the most harmful wavelengths of light and protect you against computer and device screens, fluorescent lighting, LEDs and other artificial sources.

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 artificial light.

Both of these lens tints are particularly helpful for managing symptoms like post-concussion headaches, migraines, and photophobia.

TheraSpecs Z-Blue™ is the lens tint often preferred by brain injury and concussion survivors who find that flashing lights and/or repeating patterns are likely to trigger their symptoms. This lens targets a different portion of light that research shows can negatively activate the photoparoxysmal response in the brain and lead to hypersensitivity.

Better than Typical Sunglasses

It is common practice to wear sunglasses indoors when you have intense photophobia, but this can make you more light sensitive over time. Since TheraSpecs target specific ranges of light, their lenses do not have to be as dark as normal sunglasses, giving you risk-free protection for TBI- and post-concussion photophobia. P.S. We also apply the FL-41 tint on a dark, polarized and 100% UVA/UVB blocking lens for our FL-Sun™ tint—making them the best outdoor sunglasses you’ll ever own.

Custom Options Available

TheraSpecs come in a variety of readymade frame options, but you can always customize them for your needs. For example, we can replace the lenses of any specialty frame you send us, and we can even create prescription TheraSpecs lenses. We want you to love not just the relief of your TheraSpecs, but the look and feel of them too!

60 Day Return Guarantee

Every brain reacts differently, which is why all in-stock TheraSpecs styles come with a 60-day return and exchange guarantee. That way, you can make sure their therapeutic lenses provide concussion and post-concussion relief against bright light. We also are more than happy to make exchanges for other frame styles and/or lens options. Learn more about the details of our return and exchange policy here.
