BORN FROM CUTTING EDGE

Axon Optics is a high tech startup that develops products, specifically eyewear, that is intended to help people who suffer from photosensitive migraines. They use the latest research from facilities like the University of Utah’s Moran Eye Center to create precision tint lenses that have been shown to block the light implicated in aggravating migraine and light sensitivity.

The first line of products was based upon FL-41 glasses and launched in June 2011. Improvements to the lenses and frames have been ongoing. Research is currently underway at the University of Utah and other clinics in an ongoing effort to develop improved eyewear for light sensitive conditions.

Where Research Meets Innovation.

Why Axon Optics

Quality

At Axon Optics we understand that not all “migraine glasses” are created equally. While there are other companies that sell glasses with precision tinted lenses, many do not have our level of quality. One study looked at where people were getting their therapeutic lenses. An analysis of product quality and effectiveness showed that quality, spectral characteristics, and optical densities of tints varied widely from one optical shop or laboratory to another. Axon Optics has developed a proprietary lens used by thousands of people.

Frame Options

People with more severe light sensitivity might prefer a wrap style frame that minimizes light coming around the frame. People who are less light sensitive or don’t like the wrap style can choose a more traditional frame. One of our most popular products, fitovers, can be worn over existing prescription eyewear. Axon is able to accommodate prescription lenses. Don’t see what you want on our website? Just ask—we can probably get it for you!

Ongoing Research

We use our profits to support ongoing research and product development. We aren’t satisfied with the treatments currently available for light sensitivity, and you shouldn’t be either. In conjunction with eye clinics and neurological clinics, Axon is developing new products to help people with migraine and other light-sensitive conditions. Axon’s mission is to provide people with the best and widest variety of options for treating light sensitivity.

Meet Our Team

Nestled at the edge of the Rocky Mountains, our team is either conducting groundbreaking research at a nearby facility or making discoveries in our engineering department or helping people who have light sensitivity find the right solution.
