Glaucoma is one of dozens of conditions that can cause or aggravate painful light sensitivity (also known as photophobia) and reactions to glare. This is primarily due to increased pressure in the eye, which can result in a number of visual problems. TheraSpecs precision tinted glasses are the best for reducing glaucoma related light sensitivity and photophobia.
Glaucoma glasses and sunglasses reduce light sensitivity
TheraSpecs indoor glaucoma glasses and outdoor glaucoma sunglasses are a natural source of relief for light sensitivity. The TheraSpecs tint—which has been proven effective for other eye-related conditions (such as blepharospasm)—blocks the part of light that can be most painful for a person with glaucoma. Their indoor lenses minimize the impact of blue and green light from fluorescent lighting, which is a common trigger for many with photophobia, as well as other artificial light. TheraSpecs outdoor sunglasses for glaucoma have the same therapeutic tint on a darker and polarized lens to reduce bright sunlight and harsh outside glare.
Why not just wear sunglasses? It may be surprising to learn that dark sunglasses can actually increase photophobia when worn regularly indoors. The TheraSpecs indoor tint is lighter, while still filtering the most harmful wavelengths, to provide effective relief without side effects. Similarly, TheraSpecs outdoor lenses can be a great option for people with glaucoma who find that wearing normal sunglasses outside do not provide enough protection against bright light and glare. Plus, TheraSpecs indoor and outdoor glasses are 100% UVA/UVB blocking.
