Axon Optics’ Mistral7m Review

Axon Optics Mistral7m FL-41 Therapeutic eyewear natural migraine relief

 

By Michael Fernandez of Migraine Discussions

 

Hello folks, you’ve all seen me review multiple pairs of Axon Optics lenses and frames. I’ve even done comparisons for them with the typical glasses you get after surgery on your eyes called “solar shields” which I found are very cheaply made compared to Axons glasses. In fact I rarely remove them from my face besides to clean them or swap them for a more suitable pair of Axon Optics lenses. Lets get to the point though today I’m reviewing the Mistral 7M’s worn by my fiance and mother for a few weeks each to get a good feel for the product. They each found the Mistrals to be fascinating, but are they worth the $169 price tag? This article should answer that question by the time you’re done reading and if I haven’t please feel free to ask any questions you might have!

 

Comfort

These glasses rest well on the bridge of one’s nose and aren’t heavy, so they rarely leave a line or indentation on one’s face. They’re shaped well and have small raised areas to block peripheral light that don’t interfere with your vision or leave any odd markings on one’s face. They can even be worn in a swimming pool without issue as I wore my Bora frames and my fiance wore these frames from Axon on our tip to my grandfather’s yacht club and then after a ride on the boat took a dip in the pool. We both kept our glasses on for light sensitivity and got tons of compliments from the many seniors frequenting the pool. I handed out a lot of Axon Optics cards at this place! It isn’t like we were looking to advertise either we just wanted a nice calm swim and it turned into a small lecture on Axon Optics and the FL-41 tint for light sensitivity.

 

Features

- The Mistral 7M has a wraparound style for extra coverage in the sun.

-  It comes in the following colors: Tortoise, Glossy Black, or Chocolate Crystal

- The glasses can be prescription if you need it. Just send a copy of your RX with the order.

- They come in the following shades: Indoor, Outdoor, Transition, and Polarized, Extra Dark.

- Can come with up to 2 premium coatings: Anti-Smudge and Anti-Glare.

 

Price

These glasses start at $169 a hefty price for most people but some insurances cover this nowadays and if they save you even one trip to the ER you’ve already made your money back multiple times over. Heck you make your money back several times over just in the ambulance en route to the hospital. So I can totally justify that price when you look t this as a medical device and therapeutic tool and not simply another pair of glasses. This is an invaluable tool for anyone with photophobia and I cannot see anyone giving up the comfort these lenses bring for the price.

 

Conclusion

These glasses look normal and actually quite sexy on women if I do say so myself. I had to ask my fiance if these were the Axon Optics pair or her Ray Bans as I personally couldn’t tell the difference. I asked my mom the same question where she’d bought the glasses then she reminded me I gave them to her and that she was driving with them on to prevent more migraines. This warmed my heart as I found a small way to pay back my mother for all the care and hospital visits she has been through with me, I couldn’t ask for a better immediate family or a better fiance. Thank you for reading and I hope you’ll go out and try a pair of Axon Optics glasses now they really are worth your time to give a test run as they truly work I’m not just pulling your leg here. I hope you all have a pain free week and best wishes to all of my readers!

Serious Pain & Normalcy

Axon Optics Michael Fernandez Migraine Discussions.jpg

By Michael Fernandez of www.migrainediscussions.com

Right now I am in some real pain, thought you knew the beast and then it bites harder than ever and you learn something new.  You learn that sometimes you must learn to live with your pain and not without it because that may not be reality. Unfortunately sometimes it isn't realistic or possible to diminish one's pain unfortunate as that may seem. I happen to be one of those few patient who has access to just about any opioid I ask for due to how well I regulate my medication and have proven to my doctors that I come nowhere near to abusing it. Actually ever since a family member overdosed on opioids I've been afraid of my own medication and that's a mental demon I fight every time my mother asks "Mike do you need Pain meds?" I struggle to say yes when I do need them ever since that event. Life isn't as easy for me as it is for normal people, hell I no longer know what normal even feels like.

 

Speaking of normal what is it like is it boring, calm, peaceful, or enjoyable? I honestly don't know how it is I've forgotten what normal or not being in pain is like. "Pain free" just isn't a reality to me I struggle with that fact every day of my life and continue to seek my "Dr. House' a physician who is interested in my case and look at it as an enjoyable exercise or puzzle to figure out. I wish I had the money to pay ALL of my specialists and some consultant doctors from Johns Hopkins, the NIH, Mayo Clinic, and Mass General to all come sit down and go over my case as a team. Then spend a week or two in a private hospital room seeing each of these doctors and doing any tests they want and examinations over this time. Halfway through and at the end the doctors would consult with me as a group and come to a conclusion finally as to which Vasculitis I have if it isn't Churg-Strauss Syndrome and other diseases as well. I really need some miracle A-Team of doctors or something I feel or else I'll essentially be left with a death sentence to die around 38 years old. That'd be sad and I really want to live, but the future seems bleak for this patient.

 

One of the few normal things about me are my sunglasses which people find stylish and feature the Bora frame by Axon Optics with that world renowned FL-41 tint. These are one of the few items I have in life that make me feel normal, heck even more than normal sometimes I feel classy and important wearing these things which is new to me. I get so many complements on how they look it's impossible to have a slightly bloated ego for a migraineur. It's one of the few accessories I have that I can say outside or indoors makes me feel normal and even sets me apart from others, these help people to remember me and make a visual impression upon those I network with. In fact I wear these glasses at all times they never leave my sight! I truly believe though that the fact that these glasses allow one to feel normal again in situations where light would normally make it impossible to enjoy themselves is the strongest feature of this unique product!

 

As you all know I've been doing well in the job market and progressing my website as a business, but it's all extremely frustrating! I'm doing well with my business but I can't get myself to feel good enough to push my skills and outgoing personality to the next level. Hopefully soon I will find reserves of energy I never knew I had but currently life is just plain and I have a great will to succeed! Thank you for reading and listening to more of my complaints I don't feel much better but at least I feel slightly better now that I've written at least a little bit. I always try to vent through my words as somebody can typically relate to the situation which is interesting.

Polarization or Transitions with my Axon Optics Lens?

 

Hi Axon Optics Readers!  Virginia here.  People get so excited about our lenses that they want to try everything.  All of our lenses have our superior blend of the therapeutic FL-41 tint, the only tint proven to help light-sensitivity and associated conditions.  All of our lenses have 100% UVA and UVB protection.  I recommend the anti-glare anti-smudge coating to reduce reflections and to protect your investment.  But what about our other customization options?  Many people ask me which I'd choose: transitions or polarization.  (A lens can't have both.)  This article is purely my opinion, having tried both lenses and spoken to many customers about their respective experiences.

Axon Optics FL-41 Natural Migraine Relief Headache Eyestrain Blepharospasm Photophobia

Of the two, I’d definitely recommend transitions over polarization.  Let’s examine the pros and cons of both:

Transitions

Pros: A Transitions lens darkens outside and doubles as a sunglass pair.  The darkening transitions element within the lens won’t impede your regular vision, indoors or out.

Cons: It’s not going to feel as dark as sunglasses, our outdoor tint, or our polarized lens.  Also, the cost may be prohibitive for some people.  May not provide adequate coverage to be used as a sunglass if you order the lenses placed in an eyeglass frame.

Polarized Lenses

Pros: Polarized lenses block some of the entire light spectrum and are common in sunglasses. Our tint adds extra coverage in the painful portion of the light spectrum.  For those averse to a rose-tinted lens, this one appears as a soft charcoal grey (you’ll barely see the pink).  The upcharge for polarization is minor compared to the upcharge for Transitions, making it an option for some who would be unable to purchase Transitions. Great for blocking glare from outdoor activities such as boating, fishing, skiing, snowboarding – any activity where you’d have that up-facing reflection from the snow or water surface.

Cons: Has a lower concentration of tint compared our outdoor tint,  which has the greatest therapeutic benefit. As with all polarized lenses, they can cause distortion when viewing electronics, and make some people feel sick. If you’ve worn polarized lenses before, then you’ll be fine. If you have not worn polarized lenses before, we do not recommend purchasing your prescription lenses with polarization at first. Non-prescription polarized lenses can be exchanged.

Conclusion: Transitions work for everyone, but polarization only works for some.  If you want the most therapeutic possible lens, try the outdoor tint.  If you want both indoor/outdoor use, try the Transitions.

A Trip to the Park

1403378236628.1.jpg

Some of you may be familiar with the ITT Tech commercials, if you have seen them then you know how I feel about Axon Optics. I feel their glasses have helped my light sensitivity and improved my life just as much as the people in those commercials whose lives have been changed due to a better education. However, many of you already know my love for this great company so let me share a story with you, one that shows what joys these glasses allow me in life that I previously couldn’t access due to severe photophobia!

 

I have recently began a new sort of tradition with my fiance, we now go to the park every nice day we can when I’m well enough to go out. I couldn’t even go outside on a sunny day prior to purchasing my first pair of Axon Optics glasses. Now with the outdoor dark rose FL-41 tint I can go just about anywhere, now I’m not saying I can look directly at the sun nor do I recommend such an idiotic thing but what I am saying is I can now enjoy activities that weren’t even a possibility before. We now go to the local park to write articles, poetry, my books, and to read. Heck we’ve even had picnics, strolled around the rose garden, and visited the veteran memorial in honor of my good friend John Bebee and my two favourite cousins Gregory and Francis-Amy both of whom are in the Navy and doing quite well in life. In fact Gregory and his wife even run a rescue NPO for pitbulls which is awesome of them!

 

Not only can we visit the park but I can go into restaurants that are lit brightly now for a calm lunch or dinner even though we still go at off hours to avoid the noise of the crowds. Again though the point is before these glasses came into my life things like this were impossible for me. Perhaps the most important change though is that I can now read my computer again and look at screens of TV’s, phones, and computers in general. I had to quit my first good job due to having so much trouble doing 12 hour shifts in front of a screen with a headset on all day at a medical based call center that took overflow calls to local hospitals. Had Axon Optics been around at the time, I might've been able to keep my job which would’ve made me eligible for SSDI by now instead of being ineligible and needing to apply for SSI.

 

So I hope this article has been a real eye opener that’s only a glimpse of all that these glasses have allowed me to do now. There’s a whole lot more of these stories I have to tell that would bring people to tears. These glasses are in fact the only way I write these articles for others otherwise I’d be stuck sitting in my corner alone scribbling away in my notebook half blinded by the light in the room and my migraines. So thank you Axon Optics both for taking care of me as a customer and then hiring me to show just how much you do care about those who support your products! Now that is rare nowadays a company that takes care of it’s user base, I am simply overjoyed.

Dystonia Awareness, Chronic Illness, and Blepharospasm Advocate Lori on Axon Optics Lenses

Lori Fl-41 Axon Optics natural migraine relief blepharospasm transition lenses

 

Hi, my name is Lori.  I have Generalized Dystonia and Blepharospasm. I also am glued to a screen of some sort for 8-10 hr days, as I am an advocate for dystonia awareness and am the Administrator for a large support group on Facebook. It's not just the group which keeps me with my face constantly looking at my phone and laptop  - I've spent months developing social networking sites as well as making a website from scratch too!

 

I've had my transition Axon glasses for a few months now and I have written on Amazon about how amazing they are… Well, I'm not finished saying how amazing they are….a few days ago I forgot to have my glasses on while I was on a 10-hour website making spree. That night my eyes were bright red, all night they were burning and watering so badly.  I never slept and by morning both my eyes were swollen shut the entire next day. Which meant no work….I absolutely cannot work or use a computer without my glasses, they are necessary for me to do what I need to do and I need them from morning to night.

 

At first, I gushed about light sensitivity and how soothing they are to my eyes, my nervous system and being able to handle horrible bright stores. Well now it's way more than that! Without these glasses, I cannot help people. I cannot run a growing group AND a new Dystonia Awareness Social Media Nonprofit organization without them. These glasses literally allow me to provide education to the world, media outlets for others who suffer from dystonia to use for their own benefit and jobs for people who want to be active in advocacy as well.

 

When glasses affect over 1200 people a day and hopefully thousands one day, that's serious. To pursue my calling and overcome my disability to help others, something as simple to others like a pair of glasses, means the world to me and everyone who benefits from my ability to sit behind a computer screen.

 

Thank you for helping me be able to try to make a difference in this world of Dystonia and Blepharospasm.

 

Xoxo Lori

10 Ways to Escape the Burden of a Hospital Stay

10 ways

 

Hospitals are typically not a joyful place to stay or visit.  I truly cannot believe I make it through some of my longer stays with all the noise, the complicated nature of my case, and the little sleep you tend to get as a migraineur in the hospital. Heck, anyone who is sensitive to noise and sound would certainly be uncomfortable in this awfully loud and bright setting.  If you don’t get a private room, then hope your roommate is discharged and you get some time alone. My last hospital stay was decent because I ended up with a good roommate. Carlos was an excellent young fellow who manages a local convenience store.

I promised to share with you, ladies and gentlemen, 10 ways to stay occupied throughout your hospital stay.  Here are my recommendations:

 

1. Bring your Chargers! Bring portable recharger(s) for your phone, tablet, and any other USB- based charging device. I personally bought two online from a company named Jackery one is small as my ring finger and carries 1 full iPhone charge maybe a little more, the other has 2 USB ports for simultaneous charging and carries enough charge for 3 whole phone charging cycles. For a device that will fit in one’s pocket that’s pretty darn good if you ask me and the batteries themselves charge quite quickly through a wall charger!

 

2. Music!  Bring music, whether an older CD player or a  tablet or phone with MP3 storage. Music is proven to help people who are sick.  I recommend reading about Oliver Sacks as he has delved deep into this subject. Personally I use the Bose 20i earphones as they have a mic and volume controls for my iPhone’s Pandora One program which I often use to listen to music. These particular earphones use a microphone to pick up outside noise and when turned on will block out as much noise as possible so much so that if the hospital or IV alarms aren’t going off right next to you everything is silent and peaceful, worth the hefty $300 price tag to me for that kind of relief.

3. Pay the small fee for hospital TV and phone.  You’ll feel better when family and friends can call you during your stay. TV and phone are great distractions.  Right now the World Cup is on and a lot of people are watching soccer – or as the rest of the world calls it appropriately in fact- football! This will take your mind off of some of your pain and relieve you of that cabin fever feeling for at least a few moments!

 

4. Keep a pair of sunglasses or FL-41 tinted light sensitivity specific frames around at all times! You never know when an IV med might trigger a migraine, or if an attack might just come on. Who knows, since it can easily happen with all the light and noise in the entire hospital. So personally, since I’m extremely sensitive to light almost all the time I wear FL-41 tinted lenses at ALL times. In fact, even when I sleep in the hospital I wear them because you often wake up to the bright lights being turned on for a new IV to be put in, blood draws daily, or to simply take my vitals at 5 or 6am. Either way, the sudden change from completely dark to daylight bright bothers me immensely so this tip is crucial to my own comfort in any hospital environment. I highly recommend the outdoor tint on a large pair of OverRX or Bora frames as they are perfect for anyone even remotely as sensitive as I am. A pair from the NeuroOpthamologists over at Axon Optics will change your life! Why large you ask? Well because it fits over more frames so you’ll always have more of a selection, and I say the outdoor tint because that’s what I use indoors as well on my worst migraine days, so I highly recommend it to everyone. Remember: your phone or laptop or tablet screen brightness can always be raised, but lowering it probably won’t help your eyes if you’re having a severe attack and are severely photophobic.

 

5. Don’t forget your home pillows and ice packs! There’s typically a patient fridge, so be sure to label them and put them in a ziplock that’s also doubly labeled with your name. Trust me, your home ice and gel packs are probably much better than anything they’ll offer at the local hospital. I recommend the pillows and perhaps even a blanket for comfort as well. DO NOT forget to wash it all as soon as you are discharged, put it in the hamper or your laundry along with all hospital worn clothes that very same day and wash it all as soon as you can. Don’t forget how many people go in and out these doors every day.

6. Yes, I know many hospitals now have hand sanitizer dispensers in the patients rooms. However, just to be safe, bring your own hand sanitizer and some body lotion with you. This will keep your skin from drying out whilst sitting on that same hospital bed for days, weeks, sometimes even months. I also recommend you bring baby wipes to keep clean in case you’re too weak to shower on occasion.

 

7. Stay hydrated! Even if you’re hooked up to an IV, that means nothing for a migraineur. Drink, drink, drink that water up as much as you can until you’re urinating regularly! It’s healthy for you and will keep you stretching your legs, so this is crucial especially to those like me with neuropathy who need the physical therapy and movement. This will help to prevent fluid build up and swelling as well, remember even if it hurts you MUST keep moving!

 

8. Bring your chronic pain or migraine journal! Dont forget to record all the information you get at the hospital, take advantage of a nurse taking your vitals often and record them with the time taken. Also record your current pain level, and the symptoms you’re experiencing at the time. This will greatly assist your doctor in a diagnosis and the longer and more accurate your diary is the better it will be as an asset in your medical care.

 

9. Bring and keep 2 lists of medications: the first of which should be from home, the second one should be what you’re taking on that specific hospital visit. This will help you greatly in deciding what to do and it’ll show your doctor that you’re a vigilant, intelligent, and reliable patient who genuinely does want to be helped as you’re keeping as much information as possible. Keep a paper and digital copy of this I highly suggest saving the list to your phone if at all possible!

 

10. Don’t bring your wheelchair if you can help it! Again I repeat the hospital is a germ filled place so don’t even bring a rollator if you can help that too or a walker. They will have this equipment at the ready so if you can make it inside with a cane please do so and avoid dirtying up all your home medical accessories. This goes doubly for chemo patients and those with autoimmune disorders. Yes it may be more comfortable what you’ve got at home but why dirty up your equipment when you can use theirs temporarily?

 

Those are my 10 tips to help you avoid a bad experience at the hospital. I have more, but we’ll save that for another time. I don’t want to overwhelm anyone with page and pages of must-do’s and don’ts just yet! Keep your devices clean by wiping them down with a sanitary towel every now and then it’s just alcohol based it won’t hurt. I hope this brightens up at least one persons hospital stay or at least prepares you. Later I may write about my hospital travel bag which is always kept packed and at the ready. Thank you for reading and I appreciate your time, and lastly good luck with your next hospital stay. I hope that it doesn’t last too long!

Chronic Illness Advocate, Journalist joins Axon Optics Team

VenusandMike19 2-6.jpg

 

What more can I say? Today I got a phone call from the research team at Axon Optics. My dream came true.  I am now an official employee at Axon Optics.  

Thank you, Axon Optics, for giving a chronically ill patient the chance to work from his computer both at the hospital and at home. We literally had the phone conference with the hospital bed phone as I’m still hospitalized with no release date.

 

I am thrilled!! I’ll be writing articles, answering customer questions, and sharing migraine-related articles on social media. This is ideal for me as I spend all day writing and using social media, between home and the hospital.  

To introduce myself to the Axon crowd, here’s some facts about me:

 

  • I was named 2013-2014 Rookie of the Year at WEGO Health’s Health Activist Awards, which has lead to speaking engagements and live Twitter chats.

 

  • To keep my mind stimulated, I write both an article and a poem each day.  I post them on my website, Migraine Discussions.  Visit my blog here: www.Migrainediscussions.com

 

  • I am a social media-based chronic illness advocate diagnosed with Terminal Stage 3 Churg Strauss Syndrome,  Daily Chronic Migraine,  Cluster Headache,  and Non Length Dependent Small Fiber Neuropathy.  Helping others is what keeps me fighting this terrible illness.

 

  • Since June is Migraine Awareness Month, I will be giving away a few pairs of glasses on my website.   I have styles for both men and women. Email your story to me, summarized in 2 paragraphs,  with a photo of yourself that I can post to my blog.  Please email to

 

I started having episodic migraines at age fourteen. Today,  my team of doctors believe I may have had them since infancy.  My average pain level is 8 on the 10 point pain scale.  I have lived with nonstop pain for the last two years!  Axon Optics lenses gave me my life back. Without them, I couldn’t write this article or look at any screen TV or laptop and wouldn’t go outside; I’d basically be living in a dark cave if it weren’t for these absolutely wonderful Axon FL-41 lenses – I love them! I love them so much.  These lenses aren't only helping people with migraines or chronic illnesses because they also help with general light sensitivity and eyestrain. My fiancée, caretaker, and co-blogger Venus wears a pair of their therapeutic mistral sunglasses.  My caretaker/RN Mom will get a pair soon for her fluorescent lights at work and to reduce migraines.  Even my grandparents are planning to get some!

 

I cannot end this article without thanking Axon Optics for this wonderful opportunity.   They lead by example in hiring the chronically ill.  They are a small research and development company that reinvests all of their profits into research. What more could you ask for?  I haven't been able to work in two and a half years and now I'm back to work doing something meaningful.  In my opinion it is a miracle,  a dream come true!

Help! How can I tell if my Transitions have Axon Optics therapeutic tint?

Axon Optics natural migraine relief FL-41 lenses with transitions-logo-dark-blue

Axon Optics uses Transitions Brand lenses in our optical lab.  Every pair is hand-tinted and so variation may occur.  These are very complex lenses with multiple functions.  These lenses can take up to a month for us to produce, as most are made-to-order according to your specifications.  They may include:

UV Protection: All Axon Optics lenses provide full UVA/UVB protection, making them superior sunglasses.  

Polycarbonate or CR-39: We use high-grade plastic composites instead of glass to reduce the risk of shattering.  If you have a very strong prescription, we may need to upgrade to a high-index material.  High-index materials are stronger, but more expensive both to purchase and to process.    

Add a prescription: We can add your prescription to the lenses.  The cost depends on your prescription and other lens options.  

Our tint: Axon Optics' proprietary version of the FL-41 tint has been clinically proven not only to work, but to work better than other tints and other versions of this tint.  Our therapeutic tint will appear as a light pink on the surface of your Transitions lenses, which will darken to a deep purple.  The tint is providing natural migraine relief whether you are indoors our outdoors, and does not change its effectiveness when the Transitions element activates or deactivates.

Add a coating:  Our default lenses are uncoated.  Most eye doctors strongly recommend adding an  anti-glare anti-smudge coating to the outside of your lenses.  Our anti-glare anti-smudge premium coating is an optical standard; if you've worn prescription lenses before, you have probably had this coating on your lenses.  Anti-glare anti-smudge coating renders light-sensitivity lenses more effective by reducing overall exposure to ultra-bright lights, glare, and reflections.  The coating also protects against smudges, moisture, and scratches. This is a great way to protect your investment.  

Note that due to the unique handmade nature of these lenses, tint color and darkness achieved may vary.  This variation increases with time of day, weather, and season, so it is a good idea to compare darkness in both full and partial sun.  Be sure to leave your lenses outside long enough to see just how dark they go – you'll be amazed how clear the view is when you put them on.  

This batch of glasses happened to be consistent, with all being pale pink indoors and nearly black outdoors:

As you can see, variation does exist among pairs.  All of these seem to have our tint, but the one pair appears to have a defective transitions element within.  Can you guess which one it is?  The light pink pair in the center clearly had our tint, but fails to darken in full sun.  If you're not sure about your pair, don't hesitate to contact us!

Chronic Migraines Stopped me from Going Almost Anywhere


I have lived with Chronic Daily Migraine for over 25 years. They are very debilitating. One thing that I cannot handle, is being in florescent lighting. And it is nearly impossible to go anywhere at all thee days, and not come in contact with florescent lighting. Even Computer screens do a number on me. I have tried tinted lenses to lessen the exposure to these bright lights. I've tried many different tints from 3 different eye doctors, to no avail.

Being the persistent person that I am, I didn't give up. I came across Axon Optics while searching online for Migraine tints. I ordered a pair of tinted readers and now can't be without them. If I leave them at home by accident, I will get a migraine. I still get chronic daily migraines and probably always will, but at least this particular trigger is helped so much by my tinted readers from Axon Optics. So, my advice is to not waste your time getting just any tinted lenses for migraine light sensitivity. Get the right tint. This company knows their stuff. I used to think eye doctors would know more about migraine tints than some company. Wrong!

I found that Axon Optics has done extensive research to create just the right tints for those with light sensitivity due to a host of diseases. I wish I would have known a long time ago about this company. I could have saved a lot of time and money, had I gone right to Axon Optics. Their products are high quality. Not junk. They put a lot of pride into their products and they stand behind them. I am not associated with this company in any way. I am just one happy customer who wanted to share her experience and help others. Their customer service is excellent; which is extremely important to me. Thank you, Axon Optics, for helping me. God Bless you.
