I'm looking for advise on tinted migraine glasses

Has anyone used glasses tinted to block blue/green light? My photo sensitivity seems to be getting worse. I were glasses and have prescription sunglasses, but I find it a hassle going form one pair to another and don't like being inside with the sunglasses on. My prescription is expensive and I wear my glasses all the time so buying a non prescription to try is not an option,

I have become so photosensitive that I can't even walk around the house anymore with the light changing from room to room. The changing light stabs my eyes and head. I used to spend a fair amount of time on the computer as well and I can't do that anymore because of the light coming from the screen. My neurologist suggested I look into a company called TheraSpecs, started by a couple who dealt with chronic migraine with severe photophobia. There are probably several diffierent companies out there. I have had mine now for three weeks and they have made a major improvement in my life. Just be careful you get glasses that have the proper tinting that filters out all blue wavelengths and only certain of the green wavelengths. It is very scientific, and for what we're going through, we should get the right lenses.

I have just purchased a pair of migraine glasses. They are for indoor use as I believe part of the trigger for me maybe the lightning in my office. The glasses have a rose tint that are supposed to block the light that triggers the migraine. I am waiting for them to arrive but am remaining optimistic. The website says they have a 75% success rate and if they don’t work you can return them.

I got 10% rose tinted prescription glasses from Zenni and added an Amber sunglass clip on. It cost around $40.

If it filters out the blue light wavelengths, does it also filter out blue color?
