It all started with a pretty little halo of rainbows around lights at night.  My neurologist thought I was having a new type of migraine (oh, joy!).  But what we thought may be an infrequent, new-fangled migraine symptom turned out to be something called Angle-Closure Glaucoma.  It’s fairly rare and apparently very serious, which explains how I ended up with my first surgery scheduled for just a few days after the initial diagnosis.

The surgery (I had two of them, one in each eye), known as peripheral iridotomy, immediately decreased the pressure in my eyes and I am so thankful that the disease was caught before it became advanced.  But I have had some ongoing issues related to the surgery, including extreme sensitivity to light, glare or ghosting, and dry eyes.

Since I know that bright lights and glare while driving are already a migraine trigger for me, I knew I needed to figure out a way to take care of my eyes and minimize these side effects of the glaucoma surgeries, which led me to look into Axon Optics’ FL-41 glasses as a potential solution for what I was experiencing.  glaucoma

I’m so glad I did!  These Petite Wayfarers with anti-glare, anti-smudge coating have made a drastic difference in how glaucoma affects my life.  I can drive at night again without painful glare from headlights and streetlights.  I can work at the computer without the white, horizontal line of light (ghosting) caused by the extra hole in my iris.  I can watch television in a dark room without squinting.  I have gone from using my dry-eye drops 3-4 times per day to maybe once per week.  Glaucoma definitely looks better through rosy glasses!  Thanks, Axon Optics!
