Natural Migraine Relief with Axon Optics' Therapeutic Tint
Blocking certain wavelengths of light can be an effective means of natural migraine relief. In 1991, researchers at the University of Birmingham, England tested a group of migraine sufferers by having them wear glasses with a special tint, known as FL-41.  The tint preferentially blocks blue-green light and was originally developed to reduce sensitivity to fluorescent lighting, but has been shown effective in mitigating the frequency and severity of migraine, blepharospasm, and other light-sensitive conditions. In the 1991 study, when wearing specially-tinted FL-41 lenses, participants experienced a reduction in the number of migraines, from 6.2 episodes per month to 1.6 episodes per month.
Helping People Find Natural Migraine Relief Ever Since
Since that time, the Moran Eye Center at the University of Utah has been tinting lenses with the same Therapeutic Tint used by Axon Optics and prescribing it to patients for natural migraine relief. More than 80% of patients report that the tint improves symptoms of photophobia (light sensitivity) and headache. For some patients, the improvement can be dramatic, allowing patients disabled by headache and photophobia to return to work. See all customer feedback here.
Not All Tints Are Created Equal
Axon Optics has the technical expertise to deliver consistent quality. One of Dr. Katz’ first research projects was to determine if his patients were getting the same quality from different vendors. He was surprised to find wide variations in the quality, spectral characteristics, and optical densities of FL-41 tints purchased from different optical shops and laboratories. Axon Optics uses the therapeutic formulation preferred by the Moran Eye Center and used for thousands of patients. Our chief technical officer, Dr. Steve Blair has more than 15 years experience in biomedical optics. He has the equipment to insure that our products consistently meet Axon’s specifications, and help you to find natural migraine relief.
