Our Happy Customers Notice the Benefits



"As someone who struggles with light sensitivity in certain indoor environments and works 9+ hours a day on a computer, I highly recommend these. I noticed an immediate difference and am having fewer headaches. I sent in my prescription and these came out perfect. I highly recommend giving Axon Optics a try if you haven't already. I will certainly purchase more from them in the future." - Tarah O.


Amazing relief.

"They've truly enhanced my life. I used to get so overwhelmed by light, and I'd feel faint by the end of the day because of it. These lenses helped me more than I could ever imagine. " - Dewy D.


Wish I had found these sooner!

"The glasses make such a huge difference! I can now watch more than 30 minutes of tv without head pain. I can grocery shop or even shop without my head hurting. Most importantly, I can tolerate fluorescent lighting in my office, church, and everywhere else those terrible lights are used! If I forget to put them on when I get to work, within 30 minutes I can feel my head starting to hurt. I put on the glasses and I am good for the rest of the day. Seriously, they have helped so much. I am ordering a second pair to have as a backup! - 

Yes, Our Glasses Really Can Help With Photophobia

But don’t take our word for it. Rebecca from Australia says:

“I love wearing [Axon Optics] glasses and sunglasses, and so far my migraines haven’t been triggered by sun glare or fluorescent lights. Such a game-changer. I’m so happy I could cry. I tried so many things before this that didn’t work, including other glasses. Thank you Axon Optics...”

To assess the real impact of our glasses, we used the clinically-validated HIT-6 method to collect data from more than 1,0000 people with photophobia. We studied their light sensitivity impact before wearing our glasses, and again after using them for 4 weeks. The results speak volumes.

  • 85% saw a decrease in headache impact using our glasses 
  • 33% reduction in number of headache days
  • 40% decrease in light sensitivity 

University of Utah Study: 2x Reduction in Light Sensitivity

The research doesn’t end there. Researchers from the University of Utah have also analyzed how the color of tinted lenses affects people with blepharospasm or BEB, a specific light sensitivity condition. 

Some participants wore gray-tinted lenses, while others wore rose-tinted lenses. The study found that patients who wore the rose-tinted lenses saw a 2x reduction in their light sensitivity, as opposed to the gray tint many sunglasses use.

University of Birmingham Study: From 6 to 2 Migraine Episodes Per Month

Another study from the University of Birmingham compared blue-tinted lenses to the same rose-colored tint. In this study, patients who wore the rose-colored lenses saw a big reduction in migraines suffered per month, from more than 6 to less than 2. Migraine is a major symptom of light sensitivity.

In these studies, the rose-colored lenses blocked certain wavelengths on the spectrum, while the gray and blue lenses blocked different wavelengths, respectively. Clearly, the wavelengths blocked by different types of lenses has an impact on light sensitivity, with the rosy tint coming out on top.

So instead of hiding yourself away or wearing sunglasses indoors (which is actually a terrible idea), wear Axon Optics photophobia glasses precisely tinted to help to block the wavelengths that aggravate light sensitivity.

Axon Optics Has Superior Technology

Tinted glasses for photophobia have a long history, and there are other brands on the market. 

What sets Axon Optics apart is the significant improvements we’ve made to the standard photophobia tint, called FL-41 (which is the rose-rust colored tint mentioned in the studies above).

FL-41 was developed in the early 1990s to reduce headaches and eye strain caused by fluorescent lighting. The tint was helpful, but that was before Axon Optics came along. For over two decades, we’ve been refining our lens to surpass what FL-41 can do.

Many assume that all lenses for photophobia are the same, but that couldn't be more untrue. In fact, there was a study from the University of Utah that confirms this.

It's vitally important that the glasses you wear block the correct amount (and type) of light. Darker lenses are not necessarily better, since it causes dark adaptation

Axon Optics photophobia glasses:

  • Block more harmful light
  • Let in more good light
  • Are coated with over 18 layers for quality and better effectiveness
  • Have been proven more effective than FL-41

Don’t settle for low-grade alternatives that are either too dark or don’t block the right types of light. Feel the benefits of the quality and precision our glasses offer.
