Before I had children I was a special education teacher. The years after college; I was teaching, coaching, tutoring, and getting my Master’s degree. That was all? ha.
At this point my migraines became chronic and pretty much elevated to a new level.
Stress, lack of sleep, noise levels and inconsistent diet triggered my migraines me daily. Along with these were the lights! I taught in very harsh fluorescent lighting during the day, coached in a bright gym and sat in front of a computer doing homework or lesson plans. My eyes were so stressed that I sat in the dark during my free period and had the monitor brightness turned as low as possible.
I didn’t have a smart board at that time but if I had worked with one, I know I would have been pained every time I used it. I wish so desperately that at that time I had Axon Optics glasses. Axon Optics glasses are therapeutic eyewear.
They have FL-41 lenses that block blue-green light which was developed to reduce sensitivity to fluorescent lighting. They sell a range of products that can fit many eyewear needs. I found working with the Axon Optics staff easy and simple. I appreciate this greatly.
I now use them to blog (I’m wearing them now!) and when my photophobia is heightened. The other day I used them when I was getting my hair done. Excuse the foil in my hair but there were 4 different lights glaring on me and I needed my glasses. Here’s an example of my Axon Optics glasses at my over lighted trip.
About the blogger: My name is Sarah. I am a chronic migraine and headache sufferer. I am a stay at home mom of 2 and wife to an amazing man. I have suffered tremendously since I was 5 and it has shaped the person I am today. Until I started understanding my disease I was unable to fully understand myself (or at least a big part of me). Knowledge and support have helped me and I hope to do the same for you.
