FL-41 Tinted Lenses: The Relief You've Been Waiting For

Glasses with the FL-41 tint are a great way to naturally relieve photophobia, migraines, and other light-sensitive conditions. There have been multiple studies that demonstrate how the FL-41 tint can reduce the number of migraine attacks, alleviate light sensitivity, and protect from potentially harmful fluorescent lights.

Axon Optics has actually taken things a step further with their FL-41 tinted glasses. With the guidance of our founder, who is a neuro-ophthalmologist and pioneer for many of the original studies our competitors are citing, we significantly upgraded the original tint to provide maximum relief.

Customer loving their glasses

Fashionable and protective

"I really like these frames, they’re very fashionable and perfect for younger women. I also like how they are lightweight so they don’t contribute to more headaches. I will definitely be wearing these to my college classes this fall. Otherwise they’re perfect for running errands under fluorescent lights and on overcast days. " - Leila C.

"So I wear the glasses for my migraines (sunglasses, regular and magnifying). Grandma and Mom use them for their light sensitivity. Mom and grandma also love the fit they get when wearing these over their current prescription glasses. I am so happy I found this kind of relief for all of us!" - Julie W.

Blue Light Glasses Are NOT the Answer

Despite clever marketing, blue blockers are not the solution that migraineurs and people suffering from photophobia are looking for.

Axon Optics created an in-depth article explaining why this is the case - check it out here.

In a nutshell, studies have concluded that only certain wavelengths of light trigger migraines and exacerbate photophobia.

  • Blue light glasses do NOT block the offending wavelength
  • Axon Optics FL-41 tinted glasses DO. They were engineered from the ground up to specifically target it.

For years, we've been collecting lots of data from our customers. This was done with a survey called HIT-6 (Headache Impact Test), which is the same survey used in published studies cited by doctors and practitioners around the globe.

After many years, and hundreds of surveys later, here are the results that our users reported after wearing our FL-41 eyewear:

What are FL-41 Glasses?

FL-41 glasses are eyewear that provides natural light sensitivity relief to migraine sufferers and other light-sensitive conditions. The glasses utilize a special rose-colored tint called FL-41, which filters out specific wavelengths of light that tend to trigger migraines and aggravate light sensitivity.

The original FL-41 tint was actually developed over 30 years ago out of the University of Cambridge by a few researchers who were trying to find a solution to the eye strain and headaches caused by fluorescent lighting. Over the next few decades, multiple studies were conducted that boasted astonishing results for conditions such as photophobia and migraine, reducing symptoms.

These glasses are sometimes referred to as migraine glasses, and even light sensitivity glasses.

What Does Science Say?

2x Improvement

A team of researchers conducted a study which analyzed how this lens affects patients with a condition commonly accompanied by light sensitivity called blepharospasm (BEB). By wearing the lens, patients saw a 2x improvement in the severity of light sensitivity when compared to wearing regular grey lenses.

From 6 to 2

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.

Be Careful. Not All Lenses Are The Same

Multiple studies have been published on the quality of precision-tinted lenses such as orange, rust, and green lenses.

The studies showed extreme quality variations of the different lenses purchased from labs and optical shops.

This is very alarming - but important. It means that the vendor you choose could be the determining factor as to whether or not the glasses will provide relief. Choose wisely!

Our FL-41 lenses are not only proprietary, but they were created by a neuro-ophthalmologist out of the University of Utah, and have actually been the product used in the published studies that many of our competitors are citing as references that their product works. Why use their recreation when you can have the real deal?

Will Fl-41 Glasses Work for You?

Everybody is unique. Meaning, there's no way for us to definitively say that FL-41 glasses will help you reduce migraine symptoms and relieve light sensitivity.

What we can say, though, is that based on the amount of 5-star reviews we've received AND the overwhelmingly positive results from our clinically validated HIT-6 survey given to over 600 users, the odds of finding some relief are in your favor!

Connor writes "I was recommended Fl-41 lenses by my General Practitioner to treat my Blepharospasm and recurring monthly migraines. I have to be honest, I was not expecting the effect I've been getting. With blepharospasm, I usually deal with ocular burning and muscle contractions, which has been diminished by a drastic amount. Light change no longer has any impact on my eyes. As for my migraines, I used to go through a 6-hour ordeal, severe left hemisphere cranial pain into the night causing me to be sick. They don't fully end the migraine but they minimize the symptoms, and the fact that they can deter it, is a true life-changer."

And if you're part of the unlucky few who don't find relief, don't worry because we offer a very generous 60-day return policy built just for you. Rest assured that your purchase will give you some much-needed relief OR a refund.

Already Have Glasses?

Keep Your Current Frames

Don't worry. If you absolutely love the style and fit of your current frames, you don't have to give them up in order to find relief. We give you the ability to send in your current frames to be fitted with our special FL-41 filter. That way, you can keep your style but still find light sensitivity or migraine relief.

Prescription? Not a Problem

If you have prescription lenses, you have a couple of options. As long as you have a single-vision prescription, we'll be able to replicate the prescription online. Or, you can purchase our Cover-RX frame, which is designed to be worn OVER your glasses. It's the best way to determine if the FL-41 tint will give you relief before you spend money on prescription lenses.

Light Sensitivity Relief is Just a Click Away (Risk-Free)

Give our FL-41 glasses a 60-day test drive. If you don't find relief, send them back and we'll refund your money as soon as we can!
