I highly recommend these glasses if light, computers, etc. bring on migraines. I will definitely buy another pair in case I misplace the ones I have. These have been a life saver, and it's great not to live in fear of a migraine attack.

Joyce Colosi

The tinted contacts have enabled me to work in fluorescent light, despite having light sensitivity. They are extremely effective and so comfortable. I have worn my first pair for a full year and they've been fantastic!

Nancy T

The first time I put on my glasses the relief was nearly instantaneous. I was happily amazed and thankful that there was something that could correct my photophobia.

Chris

I was skeptical however I was sick of taking the migraine meds to knock the migraines. After 4 weeks I am completely sold on these glasses and wear them daily at work!

Brad Rossetti

I have the indoor tint. I get 2 to 4 migraines a week and these glasses have made it easier for me to function in fluorescent light or bright natural light.

Having now made two orders from Axon Optics, their customer service surpassed my expectations. Axon always kept me up to date with my orders and were very helpful answering my questions. I highly recommend them!

HOW AXON OPTICS LENSES WORK

Light Can Be Painful

You know your eyes are directly connected to your brain, right? Well, what you may not know is that there are actually two SEPARATE pathways. One transmits visual information, the other transmits pain—pain designed to tell you that the light entering your eyes is harmful and can cause damage.

Light Sensitivity can Cause Several Painful Conditions

Most people only feel this pain when they are exposed to genuinely harmful light. However, a certain portion of the population has an oversensitive pain pathway—one that overreacts to certain wavelengths of light and deems them harmful, causing pain. The resulting light sensitivity (photophobia) can be responsible for a number of light-sensitive conditions— including nausea, dizziness, dry eye, migraines, and headaches.

Lenses with Spectrashield Technology Block the Painful Light

The good news is that even for the most light-sensitive individuals, there are only a few key wavelengths of light that cause discomfort. These wavelengths have been identified and can be countered with SpectraShield FL-41 lenses. These unique, high-tech lenses are only available from Axon Optics.
