There is NO Cure For Migraines, But There is Relief With Axon Optics FL-41 Glasses

FL41 Eyeglasses - For Light Sensitivity Relief - migraineBlocking certain wavelengths of light can be an effective means to migraine relief. In 1991, researchers at the University of Birmingham, England tested a group of migraine sufferers by having them wear glasses tinted with FL-41. [1] The FL-41 tint preferentially blocks blue-green light and was originally developed to reduce sensitivity to fluorescent lighting[2], but has been shown effective in mitigating the frequency and severity of migraine, blepharospasm, and other light-sensitive conditions.

In the 1991 study, when wearing FL-41 tinted lenses, participants experienced a reduction in the number of migraines, from 6.2 episodes per month to 1.6 episodes per month.

Patients Find Migraine Relief

Since that time, the Moran Eye Center at the University of Utah has been tinting lenses with FL-41 and prescribing it to patients who are in a search of a migraine cure. More than 80% of patients report that the tint improves symptoms of photophobia (light sensitivity) and headache. For some patients, the improvement can be dramatic, allowing patients disabled by headache and photophobia to return to work.

One patient recently wrote that the fluorescent lights at her church and at the city building where she volunteered triggered horrible migraines. After being prescribed spectacles with FL-41 tint, she now leaves those locations “feeling fantastic” and looks forward to “enjoying my family instead of nursing a migraine and taking a nap.” (see the testimonials section for more customer feedback).
