Blepharospasm Treatment

If you have blepharospasm (BEB), you also most likely have light sensitivity (photophobia). Studies have shown that a certain type of lens could help reduce blink frequency, light sensitivity, and blepharospasm severity.

We modified the existing lens technology, made it more effective by fine-tuning the tint for over 20 years, and then affixed it to stylish (and high quality) frames people actually want to wear!

What Does Science Say?

A team of researchers conducted a study at the University of Utah which analyzed how this lens affects patients with blepharospasm. It was a 6-week study with fifty-six blepharospasm sufferers. Here are the findings:

  • Reduced blink frequency by 20% on average
  • Blepharospasm frequency improvement
  • Light sensitivity improvement
  • Blepharospasm severity improvement

What is Blepharospasm?

This movement disorder of the eyelids affects an estimated 5 out of every 100,000 people, mostly women, with the average age of onset being 56. Blepharospasm symptoms interfere significantly with visual performance, quality of life, and activities of daily living such as driving, reading, and shopping.

What Causes Blepharospasm?

At the moment, the cause of blepharospasm is unknown. However, we do know that it most likely has to do with our basal ganglion, a part of the brain in charge of controlling the muscles.

In a few rare cases, the development of blepharospasm is hereditary.

Could Our Glasses Treat Your Blepharospasm?

Since everyone has a unique genetic makeup, there's no way to definitively say that a particular treatment will be effective.

What we do have, however, is science! We know that many people who have blepharospasm also have light sensitivity (photophobia). Also, we know that the FL-41 tint has been shown to reduce the blink frequency of blepharospasm patients and that the tint is already an effective treatment for photophobia. However, not all FL-41 are the same. See how our tint is the most effective on the market with over 20-years of fine-tuning by a neuro-ophthalmologist out of the University of Utah by clicking here.

If you're hesitant because you're concerned that they won't work for you, don't worry! We offer a very generous 30-day return policy because why should you have to pay for something if it doesn't work?

What About Sunglasses?

Most people suffering from a light-sensitive condition will notice an immediate relief from the constant use of sunglasses as well as proactively dimming their surroundings. Even though there's short-term relief, it won't continue in the long run.

This is mainly because sunglasses block all wavelengths of light, which results in your eyes dark-adapting. Everything seems fine while you're in the dark, but for the fleeting moments you're exposed to light, it's much worse than it was before. The solution is our SpectraShield FL-41™ Glasses because they only block the offending light, not ALL light.

Minimal Risk

Unlike most other treatments for blepharospasm (Botox, pharmaceutical drugs, invasive surgeries) purchasing our SpectraShield FL-41™ Glasses is risk free. If you don't find relief, send them back within 30 days and we'll refund your money.
