Tools for Dealing with Light Sensitivity

Hi everyone! Today I am going to talk about how I deal with light sensitivity. Light is one of my strongest migraine triggers and photophobia is a common symptom of mine. Over the years I’ve developed some tools and tricks and I thought I’d share:


  1. Indoor TheraSpecs glasses help me with computers and florescent lighting.
  2. Outdoor TheraSpecs glasses help me with bright sunlight.
  3. My regular glasses are transitions lenses that get dark outside in case I am caught without my TheraSpecs.
  4. The free program called f.lux helps me use a computer. You can download it here.
  5. I prefer warm LED lights.
