Green Light for migraine pain relief

Hi all:
Has anyone tried green light therapy for migraine pain? It's supposed to reduce pain up to 20 % for some sufferers.

  1. Not for me, but my aunt suffers from migraines. Read the articles on green light around the 530nm wavelength but didn't have green lasers or green LEDs so figured I would have her try the computer screen.

    Thought I'd share here to get feedback:

    1. So sorry about that! There are many screen protectors out there for light sensitivity. I don't use one, but know others who have success with them. If this is an issue for you, have you considered glasses specifically designed for this? TheraSpecs is one such company who has developed glasses for this purpose: 1)

    1. I did not try green light therapy but I recently moved into a home and painted the living room, hallway and bedroom a light green colour as I find it soothing - like being in a cool forest. The cool look of the walls relaxes me more. Not sure if it affects my migraines because I lie with my eyes closed if I have a migraine.
