MigraLens vs Blue Light Blocking Glasses
MigraLens are therapeutic green filter glasses that block all the light that triggers, worsens or prolongs Migraines, post-concussion syndrome, vestibular disorders, and other conditions relating to chronic headache or light sensitivity.
Blue light is broadly recognized as a common trigger for Migraine, however so is light on the red end of the spectrum.¹ ²
Many of the products marketed as "Blue Light Blocking Glasses", "Computer Glasses" or using the FL-41 filter still allow a significant percentage of blue light through, without blocking any of the red light.
MigraLens glasses are the only retail-available solution that can block blue and red light at high enough percentages to provide maximum relief.
Blocking all of that blue and red light makes our glasses their distinctive green color. When it comes to Migraine, green power is strong, but be aware of cheap copies.
Just because a lens is green, it does not mean that the filter blocks a high percentage of blue and red light, or UVA/UVB.

MigraLens was examined as part of a peer reviewed paper published in the journal Headache Care.¹
The research concluded that: "Patients can use the new lenses (MigraLens) during an attack or as a preventative measure between attacks. Use of the new lenses for migraine resulted in a reduction in migraine severity and impact and improvements in subjective assessments of effectiveness and light sensitivity".
