FL-41 for Migraine Relief
Preventing specific wavelengths of light from reaching your eyes can prevent migraines. Researchers at the University of Birmingham, England, studied a group of migraine sufferers while wearing glasses with the FL-41 tint which blocks a certain blue-green light spectrum a particular problem with fluorescent lighting. FL-41 has been shown effective in mitigating the frequency and severity of migraines, blepharospasm, and other light-sensitive conditions.
In the 1991 study, participants experienced a reduction in their number of migraines from 6.2 episodes per month to 1.6 episodes per month.
Since then, the Moran Eye Center at the University of Utah has been using Axon Optics Therapeutic FL-41 tint and prescribe it to patients for natural migraine relief.
Over 90% report our tint improves symptoms of photophobia and migraine. For some patients, wearing the migraine glasses provides dramatic improvement, allowing patients disabled by headache and photophobia to return to work. See customer feedback here.
