Glasses for Fluorescent Lights. Reduce Light Sensitivity
Fluorescent light glasses (also known as FL-41 glasses) were invented in 1991 by Dr. Arnold Wilkins at Cambridge University. Dr. Wilkins wanted to come up with an effective solution for his patients suffering from eye-strain and headaches caused by fluorescent lighting. And it was a success! Many of his patients reported impressive results.
With the help of our founder and neuro-ophthalmologist, we fine-tuned the tint over the next 20 years to ensure maximum effectiveness, added 18+ layers of coating so they remain in tip-top shape for many years, and then placed them on stylish frames that people LOVE.
Relieve Painful Light Sensitivity From Fluorescent Lights
Data is critical when seeking relief for illnesses. Most companies offering glasses to protect from fluorescent lighting simply display their best reviews as proof their product works. We wanted to take it one step further by spending almost a decade collecting data from our customers via a clinically-validated survey. This particular test is called HIT-6, and it's used in studies and by physicians around the world.
Here's what we found:
24% fewer headaches
38% decrease in light sensitivity impact
88% of users saw a reduction in light impact
87% of users saw a reduction in headache impact
The Problem With Fluorescent Lighting
After coming home from a long day of work, you may notice that your eyes are itchy, burning, and painful. And if you have a history of chronic migraine, perhaps you get more migraines during your workdays.
The problem could be the harsh fluorescent lights that most companies use throughout the office.
Like most other light sensitivity symptoms, fluorescent lights could cause eye strain, blurred vision, headaches or migraines, vertigo or dizziness, eye pain, and eye inflammation.
So how do you protect your eyes from fluorescent lighting?
Enter: Fluorescent light glasses.
How Do Fluorescent Light Glasses Work?
Glasses for fluorescent lights contain a precision-tinted lens called FL-41. The FL-41 tint works by filtering out certain wavelengths of light that have recently been shown to trigger migraines and exacerbate light sensitivity.
In a nutshell, fluorescent light glasses block the harmful light, but keep the good. However, not all lenses are created equal! There have been multiple studies that show wide variations in the quality of lenses from multiple vendors. Choose quality. Choose Axon Optics.
Not All Glasses Are Created Equal
Yes, all FL-41 lenses stem from the original technology created in 1991. However, even though they use the same technology, they are far from the same in terms of effectiveness.
There are have been multiple studies published looking at the quality of the lenses from different vendors. The studies showed extreme variations from vendor to vendor.
Things like overall quality, optical density, and spectral characteristics were completely different. Meaning, you must choose wisely if your goal is to find relief!
Axon Optics fluorescent light glasses were created by a neuro-ophthalmologist out of the University of Utah. Additionally, our founder, Dr. Bradley Katz, spearheaded a lot of the research that our competitors are citing to prove their product works.
Will Our Glasses Provide Fluorescent Light Relief?
Possibly. And possibly not. Since everyone is unique, there's no way for us to be 100% certain that Axon Optics fluorescent light filter glasses will give you relief from those pesky lights.
However, because we now have clinically validated customer data, we know you're more likely to find relief than none at all.
But don't worry, we understand that you might be a part of the minority of unlucky ones that don't find the level of relief they were looking for. If that's the case, we have 30-day return policy so that you minimize your risk.
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. The only downside I would say for these frames is that the nose piece pinches a bit." - Leila C.
Blown away by the difference
"These glasses have made a huge impact in my life reducing eye strain and day to day headaches for me. While I haven't yet tested them in during a full blown migraine or under the fluorescent lights at the office (still working from home), I'd estimate my daily headaches frequency and intensity has been cut in half. This frame is lightweight and unobtrusive which is a great fit for me as I've never worn glasses before. I wear these every day." - Katasha R.
"Do yourself a favor and give them a chance. My chronic migraines were caused by a TBI and have been extremely hard to treat ever since, so I have struggled with severe light sensitivity, and these glasses have been a godsend and helped towards my relief. I own both indoor and outdoor glasses, and they have been so great for the past two years! The glasses allow me to be in fluorescent lighting without fearing the migraine consequences. Seriously, the best purchase ever." - Jess N.
