FL-41 Glasses for Photophobia Relief

Glasses with the FL-41 tint provide easy, natural relief for photophobia. As you know, photophobia can lead to migraines and other light-sensitive conditions that interrupt your life.

FL-41 tint filters out specific wavelengths of light that tend to trigger migraines and aggravate light sensitivity. These glasses are sometimes referred to as light sensitivity glasses or migraine glasses.

Our company was co-founded by a leading neuro-ophthalmologist who pioneered many of the original FL-41 studies. Under his leadership, Axon Optics has studied, tested, and upgraded the original FL-41 to create a superior lens that you can only get from us.

You’ll feel relief or we’ll refund your money.*

Can FL-41 Glasses Really Help Me?

Clinically-validated data collected over many years shows you’re very likely to get relief from our precision-tinted glasses. Here are just a few of highlights from that data.

2x Improvement in Light Sensitivity

One study analyzed how FL-41 lenses affect patients with blepharospasm (BEB), a condition commonly associated with light sensitivity. Wearing our lenses, patients saw a dramatic 2x better improvement in the severity of their light sensitivity, when compared to wearing the grey lenses typically used in sunglasses.

From 6 to 2 Headaches per Month

In another study conducted by researchers at the University of Birmingham, migraine patients who wore FL-41 lenses experienced a reduction in the number of migraine episodes — from over 6 per month to under 2 per month.

FL-41 Glasses Are Good, But Axon Optics Glasses Are Even Better

While FL-41 glasses can help with light sensitivity, studies have shown that quality and effectiveness vary widely among suppliers who claim to sell FL-41. You can read more about those differences here.

Buying glasses that claim to be FL-41 tint but look so much different from each other seems like kind of a gamble, doesn’t it?

With Axon Optics lenses, you’ll know exactly what you’re getting. Every pair of our glasses is made with the same exacting process. And in a clinically-validated survey, Axon Optics customers reported these results after wearing our glasses:

  • Block the harmful light
  • Letting in more good light
  • Offering coatings with over 18 layers for quality and better effectiveness

Are FL-41 Glasses Better Than Blue Blockers?

Yes, because blue blockers aren’t actually made for photophobia. If you want to know more, check out this article for a deeper analysis. In a nutshell, studies show that blue blockers don’t block the wavelengths of light that usually bother people with photophobia.

So while blue blockers might block some blue light, they don’t block enough of the right blue light and other types of light that actually cause the problem.
