Niche Products: Migraine Glasses

Digital Journal:

But now Kerrie, Sue, and others are “seeing” 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.

“Watching my wife suffer every day has been agonizing,” says Kerrie’s husband, Hart Shafer. “We were excited to learn that a special tint would help Kerrie, but were frustrated that we couldn’t find glasses designed specifically for migraine sufferers. So I took the plunge and made some.”

Kerrie and Hart worked together to find the right design – wraparound for maximum protection but lightweight and flexible to minimize pressure on sensitive heads. “I put them on one day and haven’t taken them off since,” Kerrie says. “Well, except to sleep! I can hardly believe I lived without them for so long. There’s no way I could function without them now and they have given me back the freedom to go wherever I want.”
