TheraSpecs glasses help

Recommended Posts

I've worked as a web developer/programmer for the past 20 yrs, and a couple of months ago my light sensitivity went up the roof, about the same time as my other symptoms exploded (vs, palinopsia, floaters, ghosting, CEVs, etc.), which lead to me having major difficulties sitting in front of computer screens and TVs because of the bright light.

I found out about a company that makes special pink tinted glasses for migraine patients on Twitter - someone who had visual snow had benefited from them - so I thought why not just try. So I ordered them and got them about 5 weeks ago. I put them on and suddenly I was able to focus on my work, watch TV and play games without feeling like getting a migraine every time - things I used to do before this brain mess started. It helps a lot, not just with the light sensitivity but the palinopsia seems calmer - seem to get less positive after images. Even my ghosting doesn't disturb me as much.

Generally my eyes feel less strained and even though it doesn't do much to stop the progressively worsening of my symptoms, they do help.

Quite expensive, especially if you live outside the US but totally worth it.

I think anything that sharpens the eyes helps. When I wear reading glasses my ghosting/diplopia becomes less noticeable.

I do have slight astigmatism that has never been an issue until I started having issues with HPPD. It's like the brain can't correct something anymore that it used to correct before.

These glasses can be ordered with a prescription, which is something I am thinking of doing.

The Visual Snow Initiative is working in cooperation with specialists on lenses/ glasses that are supposed to reduce vs symptoms. It's going to be available this summer. This info has been available on https://www.visualsnowinitiative.org/ but not anymore. However for further info you can contact them via email, they are happy to help.

Hey, I am thinking about buying one of these glasses.  Do you still recommend them?
