Stylish Glasses for Migraine Relief

According to customers who took our clinically validated HIT-6 survey, 87% of users who wore our migraine glasses (and migraine sunglasses) reported a reduction in headache impact.

How? Only certain wavelengths of light are actually triggering migraines and exacerbating your photophobia. We developed an eyewear filter that blocks the bad light, but keeps the good.

Benefits of Migraine Glasses

Over the last 8 years, we've been giving our customers a clinically validated survey called HIT-6 (Headache Impact Test), which measures the effectiveness of certain treatments. Here are the results users reported:

calendar-2

24% fewer headaches

before-after

38% decrease in light sensitivity impact

bar-graph-days-1

88% of users saw a reduction in light impact

bar-graph-days-2

87% of users saw a reduction in headache impact

How Migraine Glasses Work

More than 90% of migraine sufferers are sensitive to light. For some, light sensitivity is not only a symptom of migraine, but also a trigger. Fortunately, not all light is bad. According to a recent study, only certain wavelengths of light are actually causing pain and discomfort.

Our migraine glasses utilize technology only previously available in labs and universities. It's a special tint called FL-41, which work by filtering out the harmful light so that they never reach your eyes.

 

Published Studies

This is what can happen when you start wearing glasses for migraine and light sensitivity.

2x

In a recent study, a team of academic researchers analyzed how this type of lens affects patients with a light sensitive condition called BEB. By wearing the lens, the patients saw a 2x improvement in their severity of light sensitivity compared to wearing regular grey lenses.

6->2

For migraine patients, a study performed by researchers at the University of Birmingham, England tested a group of migraine sufferers by having them wear migraine glasses with FL-41 lenses. Participants experienced a reduction in the number of migraines, from over 6 episodes per month to under 2 episodes per month.

Not All Lenses Are Created Equal

There have actually been studies conducted on the quality of precision-tinted lenses such as orange, rust, and green lenses.

Purchased lenses from different optical shops and laboratories had wide variations in not only quality but also spectral characteristics and optical densities.

Meaning, it's very important that you choose a vendor who has a track record of outstanding quality and results. You only got two eyeballs, so make sure you treat them right!

Our Spectrashield™ FL-41 lenses are proprietary, created by a neuro-ophthalmologist out of the University of Utah, and have actually been the product used in the studies that many vendors are citing. Why use their recreation when you can have the real deal?

Will Migraine Glasses Work For You?

Since everybody is different and unique, we can't say for certain that migraine glasses will provide light sensitivity relief or a reduction in the number of migraine episodes you have per month.

However, based on the amount of 5-star reviews we've received AND the overwhelmingly positive results from our clinically validated HIT-6 survey given to over 200 users, we can say that the odds of finding some relief are in your favor!

And, if you're one of the few that don't find relief, we offer a very generous 30-day return policy.

What About Sunglasses?

Yes, normal sunglasses can provide immediate light sensitivity relief. But, according to a recent study published in Elsevier Survey of Ophthalmology, wearing sunglasses indoors could eventually make your light sensitivity worse! This is because sunglasses block all types of light (and a lot of it)!

Eventually, your eyes will adapt to the darkness. And with enough time, even the dimmest of lights could be aggravatingly sensitive. To avoid this, it's necessary to only block the offending light, and not ALL the light. The best way to do this is by wearing migraine glasses or migraine sunglasses, which use an FL-41 tint.
