You may experience or know someone who experiences migraines. These strong headaches can cause a multitude of symptoms like pain, nausea, or even have a fear of light, known as photophobia.
Currently, there is no cure. There are only tools to manage symptoms. Migraine glasses are quickly emerging as a necessary tool for survival in the digital age as migraines affect over 1 billion people worldwide. There is one migraine glasses brand that we carry at Optical Studio, called Avulux.
Avulux was created at the University of Utah, backed by independent studies and developed over many years by a neuro-ophthalmologist, Dr. Charles Posternack.
No – painful light exists in the upper blue (450nm+) range, amber range, and red range. Clear and/or yellow tinted blue light glasses do not filter the light that is most painful to those most sensitive. Nor do they reduce migraines or light sensitivity in a clinical setting. Avulux lenses absorb the blue light in the material but are not a simple blue light filter.
FL-41 were created for light sensitivities related to fluorescent lighting. Whereas Avulux absorbs more blue, amber, and red light than the FL-41 filters without distorting colour perception.
You bet! Avulux lenses are available in no prescription, single vision lenses, or progressive lenses placed in your new or existing frames!
