How I Relieved my Migraines with Computer Glasses

I’ve struggled with periodic migraines and regular headaches for the last few years. Ever since I graduated from college, and started working as a designer 8-14 hours a day at a crazy busy startup…sometimes I get home at night and have to go straight to bed. My eyes are TIRED, and my head just hurt.

I went home for the weekend, and of course, my mom gave me grief about it. “You only have one set of eyes,” she said…but what could I do? I can’t quit my job…I love it! But I knew there had to be a solution. So I started doing some digging.

Turns out, digital eye strain is a real thing that tons of people experience. Blue light emitted from phones, computers…even fluorescent lighting hurts our eyes and causing headaches. There’s even a study conducted by Harvard that shows that people exposed to a ton of blue light are more likely to get diabetes and cancer. I knew I needed to find a solution to my headaches, as well as prevent potential long-term damage.

I went to Amazon, and found some cheap glasses…but they all had terrible reviews. They were cheap, sure, but I decided that cheap was not the way to go. Like my mom said, I only have one pair of eyes! Then I found Healthy Office.

This company looks like they sell some stuff for work, like supplements and standing desks (which I also need!), but they had a bunch of blue light blocking glasses. I expected these to be pretty ugly, which I was ok with. But I found a few pairs I really liked…they looked like the glasses my design and dev co-workers wear that I’ve been slightly jealous of…lol. So, I wound up buying the Marina Clear glasses.

After about a week, my glasses came in the mail. I emailed the company right away–I couldn’t believe these actually blocked blue light. All the ones I’d seen online had colored or tinted lenses, which I thought blocked the light. Turns out, Healthy Office developed a lens to block more light than any other glasses company that’s still clear. Smart move…these look like prescription glasses. I sometimes even put them on going out at night for a low-key nerd-chic look.

I’ve had these about 6-weeks now, and I sent the company an email RAVING about them…so they asked me to write up a little blurb. For real, my eyes feel better; less dry, and tired overall. And you know what? Not one migraine in the last 15-days or so. I usually get a few a week. It seems to be working!

I’ve recommended these to a ton of my friends. Whether you’re working in front of a laptop all day, or on your phone all the time, these are clutch.

    I hope this to be the answer to all my headaches and even my blood shot eyes. I’m tired of having to go through this.

    This is my exact story. I hope I’m able to better it with getting one of these. On the wish list!

    It’s customary for me to get headaches after I arrive from work. I’m going to save up to get these and hopefully it will lessen.

    I need one of these ASAP! I didn’t think this could have been a major factor.

    Wow I wonder if these will work with regular headaches, not migraines? I also got a yoga ball to sit on at work and that seems to help…I can’t help but sit all slumped over at my desk and then my neck hurts.
