TheraSpecs lenses block the harmful wavelengths of LED lighting and reduce the negative effects of its invisible pulsing to provide protection and relief
If you find yourself feeling discomfort or other symptoms from LED lighting, TheraSpecs® therapeutic glasses can combat LED light sensitivity by targeting the wavelengths of light that agitate your eyes and brain. They can keep you protected and prevent the headaches, migraines, and other problems that LED lighting can trigger.
With the prevalence of LEDs and the discomfort that so many people feel when exposed to them, it is no surprise that our customers love feeling the relief that our lenses are able to provide. Here are some of their experiences:
What customers are saying
THEY WERE FOR ME
"We have LED downlights in our house and at my place of work. I was bothered by these lights (the sandpaper feeling on my eyes). I decided to give Theraspecs a go, and they pretty instantly made my eyes feel better. After 3 days, I knew they were for me."
-Hanna, Australia, wearing FL-Pro (extra) lenses
NOTICED THE DIFFERENCE
"Light sensitivity was terrible for me. LED, fluorescent, or even bright light bulbs. I tried Theraspecs after I did some research. I noticed the difference almost immediately. The frequency of my migraines dropped. The pain when I did get one was reduced. I can now actually enjoy using my phone or being on the laptop."
-Jason, San Antonio, wearing FL-Pro (extra) lenses
"TheraSpecs have been life-changing for me. I wear [them] most of the time, [and they have] allowed me to go to the store, to church, to work meetings, to the library - all of those places that have begun to exclusively use evil LED bulbs. I used to be completely isolated, but now I get to reengage with everyone else like a normal person."
-Mandy, Ohio, wearing FL-Pro (extra) lenses

How do TheraSpecs Glasses Protect You from LEDs?
LEDs emit high levels of the blue light that research has found to cause the most pain and other symptoms for people who are sensitive to light.1 Even people without known light sensitivity can be sensitive to LEDs, particularly those that have a “cool” visual temperature, which are common, especially in public spaces and headlights.
In addition to the high proportion of blue light wavelengths, LEDs can also cause issues because of the rapid flicker they have when dimmed even the slightest amount.2 While this flicker is too subtle for the eye to see, the brain can still detect it. This can lead to symptoms of headache, dizziness, double vision, and a general feeling of being unwell.
For many, these effects are even more severe than to dreaded fluorescent lights. In fact, people with post-concussion syndrome or post-traumatic headache report greater aggravation of their symptoms from LED and LCD displays, including head pain and photophobia, than they do with fluorescents.3
Four TheraSpecs options are available to help you manage sensitivity to LEDs:
TheraSpecs FL-Pro™ for Maximum LED Relief
If you experience strong sensitivity to LEDs or have a health condition linked to light sensitivity, turn to TheraSpecs FL-Pro for maximum relief. This FL-41 lens blocks the highest levels of the problematic wavelengths identified by research and manages the invisible flicker for the most comprehensive relief. Shop FL-Pro Lenses ➜
TheraSpecs FL-Blend™ for LED Relief in a More Subtle Lens
Like FL-Pro, FL-Blend also uses FL-41 to target the wavelengths of light that research has found to cause the most pain and other symptoms when people with light sensitivity are exposed to LEDs. The tint is more subtle than FL-Pro to strike a perfect balance of protection in a less noticeable lens. Shop FL-Blend Lenses ➜
TheraSpecs Z-Blue™ for LED Sensitivity After a TBI or Concussion
For people who have had a TBI or concussion or have post-concussion syndrome, research has found that the flicker can be more problematic than blue light. TheraSpecs Z-Blue is our lens that most effectively manages flicker. People who have had TBIs report in research studies that this lens provides the most relief. Shop Z-Blue Lenses ➜
TheraSpecs Flex™ for LED Headlight and Streetlight Relief
If you have mild LED sensitivity or are struggling with LEDs in headlights and streetlights when driving at night, TheraSpecs Flex is the ultimate choice. These lenses target the wavelengths of light that research has shown to cause the most pain and other symptoms for people who are sensitive to light in a lens light enough to be suitable for driving after dark.

TheraSpecs are available with ultra-lightweight, flexible frames with styles with extra coverage above and to the sides of the lenses for extra protection from LEDs.
Research shows that TheraSpecs:
