Tips on Buying Contact Lenses for Migraine and Light Sensitivity
Before investing in non-refundable contact lenses, please consider the following:
Try the tint. Test our tint in a non-prescription pair of lenses in our frames, to be sure you like the tint before investing in a non-refundable product. All non-prescription lenses in our frames can be returned within 30 days of purchase in new condition for a full refund or exchange credit. If they work for you, you can take exchange credit towards the pair of lenses desired, including contact lenses. If the tint does not help, promptly return the glasses for a full refund.
Try contact lenses. If you haven’t worn contact lenses before, try an inexpensive pair of disposable contact lenses from your eye doctor. This will ensure that your eyes can tolerate wearing contact lenses, and will ensure you have a contact lens prescription prior to ordering. Even if you do not need prescription correction for your vision, a contact lens prescription is required to make the lenses fit the topography of your eye.
Eye Color and Sizing information
Our lenses are 14.5 mm in diameter. The human cornea is an average of 11 mm in diameter. A soft contact lens typically overlaps the cornea by about 1.5mm on each side. We offer two versions of our soft contact lens based on the color of your eyes, though the larger coverage area can be selected if needed.
If you have Brown Eyes, we offer a fully-tinted lens that covers both the iris and pupil, approximately 11.5 millimeters wide tint area. This gives you guaranteed coverage. It will make the brown color of your iris into a warmer shade of brown.
For lighter eye colors (Blue, Hazel, Green, or Grey), we offer a Light Eyes pupil-only tint that is 5 millimeters wide; it may overlap with some of the colored iris as your pupil contracts and expands. This is a great option to avoid an eye color change, as the redness of the tint may make your iris appear unnaturally violet or reddish in color.
These are high-quality soft contact lenses that are FDA-cleared. They last about one year before requiring replacement. The lenses are custom-made. As with our Send-In-Your-Frame Service, our contact lenses are non-refundable because there is no product to return.
Contact lenses can be made with or without visual correction. We require a contact-lens-specific prescription, even if you don’t usually need prescription contact lenses or eyeglasses. The prescription may not have any correction to it, but is necessary to measure the topography of the eye so that the lens will be the correct shape. Corrections to +/- 20 sphere and 2.75 cylinder can be made.
We cannot fill orders for Bi-Toric lenses, bifocals or multifocal lenses. Estimated processing time is four weeks.
We now recommend Biotrue contact solution for cleaning and storage.
Our contact lenses (as well as most other contact lenses), do NOT afford UV protection. Customers should wear sunglasses or Axon Optics Glasses with UV protection when out-of-doors. All Axon Optics glasses provide 100% UVA/UVB protection.
