But now Kerrie, Sue, and others are â€œseeingâ€ some much-needed relief through a specialized pair of migraine glasses called TheraSpecs. Studies have shown that these precision-tinted glasses can protect wearers from light.
â€œWatching my wife suffer every day has been agonizing,â€ says Kerrieâ€™s husband, Hart Shafer. â€œWe were excited to learn that a special tint would help Kerrie, but were frustrated that we couldnâ€™t find glasses designed specifically for migraine sufferers. So I took the plunge and made some.â€
Kerrie and Hart worked together to find the right design â€“ wraparound for maximum protection but lightweight and flexible to minimize pressure on sensitive heads. â€œI put them on one day and havenâ€™t taken them off since,â€ Kerrie says. â€œWell, except to sleep! I can hardly believe I lived without them for so long. Thereâ€™s no way I could function without them now and they have given me back the freedom to go wherever I want.â€
