The Axon Advantage

Lab tested precision for maximum results

Most of our competitors use the generic FL-41 tint made 30 years ago and call it day. It's simply not enough.

For example, other lenses mistakenly filter green light, which has been show to reduce light sensitivity and migraine severity. Or, they'll focus too much on blocking blue light, even though amber light is just as harmful.

In fact, we measured the effectiveness of our competitors' light sensitivity lenses in a lab. Here's what we found.

The better alternative to sunglasses

Sunglasses may provide immediate photophobia relief, but studies show they make your light sensitivity worse over time.

At Axon, we focus on precision. Our photophobia glasses are engineered to block the wavelengths causing you harm but let in other types of light to avoid dark adaption.

Check out our Axon vs Sunglasses comparison for more info.

Reduce harmful glare

Most knock-off light sensitivity glasses produce tons of glare. This causes the light to reflect off the lens and back into your eyes without being filtered. This negates all the positive photophobia reducing benefits!

Our glasses have advanced anti-glare coatings, which results in less light glare than our competitors.

Durable and long-lasting

Our proprietary 18-layer coating protects your lenses from smudges, scratches, and glare.

Axon lenses look newer for longer, and are durable enough to withstand life's unpredictability.

Amazing results for photophobia

"My photophobia was getting so extreme it was affecting my ability to properly care for patients because the fluorescent lights would be so painful or even natural lighting. I wear these glasses almost all the time now... I'm so happy I invested in these, especially since I'm spending most of my time in artificial, super bright lighting and staring at a computer screen...

My migraine days have decreased pretty drastically, but specifically, my photophobia-induced migraines have reduced to literally 0." - Tiffany S.

Immediate improvement

"I previously used standard glasses with blue light protection, but these did little to improve eye strain or headaches. I found Axon Optics ("Flex Curve") glasses by researching online after I had my first migraine. My most common symptoms were eye strain after hours working on a computer for my work and light sensitivity (e.g., exposed light bulbs, car lights, cell phone, etc.).

After a month of using these glasses daily while working on the computer, I have noticed that my eye strain is less and my head feels much lighter and clearer at the end of the day with the electronic use almost unnoticeable. I have not had any more migraines either." - Parker C.

Huge difference

"The glasses make such a huge difference! I can now watch more than 30 minutes of tv without head pain... 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 light sensitivity 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!

These frames are worn over your glasses to provide you with all the light-filtering benefits without needing to change your current setup.

Option 2: Add your prescription to our frames

Axon lenses are available in the following prescription types:

  • Single-vision
  • Progressives (Everyday Progressives or Computer Progressives)
  • Readers

You can add these before you purchase.

Our Send-In-Your-Frame service allows us to replace the lenses in your current personal frames, or new ones your find elsewhere, with Axon lenses. You can choose the lens type (Indoor, Outdoor, or Transition) and with or without prescription.

We have three types of lenses.

Indoor
Our most popular lenses calm the eyes even under harsh artificial lighting. Can be worn inside and at a computer.

Outdoor
When regular sunglasses aren’t enough, try our dark outdoor lenses to block more of the troublesome light.

Light Adaptive
Changes from indoor tint to outdoor tint in direct sunlight. Not recommended for driving because they will not darken behind a car’s windshield.
