Many studies have been conducted on this therapy. A group of both males and females were facilitated with the green light for 1–2 hours a day for 6 weeks. After six weeks, it was reported that migraine pain reduced up to 60 percent. A scale from 0 to 10 was given with 0 being a pain-free measurement and 10 being the most painful measurement. Without green light, the average score of patients was 8. After green light therapy, it was reduced to 3.2 which is a very significant change.

Similarly, another study was done on 3 groups of rats. One group was given green light, the other group was given green contact lens, and the last one was deprived of green light and provided room light only.

When the results came, both groups which received green light showed a considerable decrease in neuropathic pain than the one that was not given green light.
