What our users say
“ I used to have a headache pretty much every Sunday/Monday from the fluorescent lights and from glare reflecting off doors and windows at church. Sometimes I started hurting within the first few minutes of arriving. Wearing these glasses protects my eyes, and now I come home feeling much better than I used to.”
“I was skeptical however I was sick of taking the migraine meds to knock the migraines. After 4 weeks I am completely sold on these glasses and wear them daily at work!”
“I have the indoor tint. I get 2 to 4 migraines a week and these glasses have made it easier for me to function in fluorescent light or bright natural light.”
“The tinted contacts have enabled me to work in fluorescent light, despite having light sensitivity. They are extremely effective and so comfortable. I have worn my first pair for a full year and they've been fantastic!”
“Very helpful. I've suffered from light sensitivity for five years. It wasn't a cure but rather, it is one more tool for me to use to protect my eyes. Also, they are very well made.”
“The first time I put on my glasses the relief was nearly instantaneous. I was happily amazed and thankful that there was something that could correct my photophobia.”
What is Light Sensitivity (Photophobia)
Photophobia, or photosensitivity, is a Greek word meaning a sensitivity to light. It’s a symptom common in many disorders, especially migraines, and it can become debilitating and affect the sufferer’s quality of life. This is why light sensitivity treatments are so important if a patient wishes to remain fully functional and enjoy life. Symptoms can be exacerbated during the day or during seasons when sunlight is more abundant, and many people who suffer with photophobia function better in the evening hours. Symptoms can be prevented or controlled with treatments for light sensitivity, including FL-41 tinted glasses and sunglasses, so that severe-photophobia sufferers don’t have to confine their lives to the evening hours.
What Triggers Photophobia?
Natural and artificial sources of light can trigger photophobia. Sunlight, particularly when leaving a dark interior space, such as walking out of a movie theater or a driving out of a highway tunnel, can trigger an episode of photophobia. If there is a susceptibility, it is important to have treatments for this sensitivity to light handy, such as light-filtering sunglasses with Fl-41 lenses, to remedy any photosensitivity. Artificial sources of light that can be strong triggers of photophobia include light with blue or green wavelengths. Blue light in particular, common in electronics such as computers and smartphones, can not only trigger light sensitivity but disrupt our sleep patterns and, over time, can damage our eyes.
