Concussions often leave painful and persistent symptoms, including headaches, light sensitivity, and photophobia. Whether you are in the first few days of recovery after a brain injury or have been dealing with symptoms for years, TheraSpecs® precision-tinted glasses for concussion and post-concussion syndrome can provide you with freedom and relief from the light that triggers your symptoms.

Here are just a few of the benefits customers have experienced with TheraSpecs concussion glasses:

What customers are saying
"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, USA
"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."
PRESENT AT ALL TIMES
"I’m currently 6 months with post concussive syndrome with head pressure and photophobia which crescendos with variant light. My quality of life has improved for myself, my husband and golden retriever to be able to function with reduced PCS symptoms. I’m able to enjoy my electronics, watch tv, but most importantly be present at all times."
-Lauren, Washington, USA
Why TheraSpecs Improve Light Sensitivity after Concussion
The benefit of TheraSpecs glasses boils down to the precision tint of their lenses. They filter the wavelengths of blue light that can trigger pain and other concussion-related symptoms, according to researchers.3 TheraSpecs block as much as 25 times more blue light than other brands marketed as blue light glasses.4
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 a specific range of light, their indoor lenses do not have to be as dark as normal sunglasses, giving you risk-free protection for concussion-related photophobia. We also apply the same tint on an outdoor lens that is darker, polarized and 100% UVA/UVB blocking—making them the best outdoor sunglasses you’ll ever own.
✓ Protection against fluorescents and screen light
✓ Relief during light-sensitive episodes
✓ Lighter than normal sunglasses
✓ Protection and relief against bright outdoor sunlight
✓ Polarized to reduce outdoor glare
✓ 100% UVA and UVB blocking
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!
