I got a pair of glasses coated with a special tint at the Moran Eye Center at the University of Utah in SLC, Utah. I live nearby, so it was a 2 hour process for me, but many people send in their own glasses to get coated with the tint. The tint is rose colored, and somehow blocks the flicker and spectrum of blue wavelength light. [Uuhcs.utah.edu/MoranEyeCenter/patientcare/FL-41] there are links to the research concerning the tint and info on how to the tint on your own glasses. To be honest, I still have eye motion disequilibrium. The glasses have allowed me to return to grocery stores, Costco, and other places where the intense lighting used to trigger extreme disequilibrium, rocking, and, at bad times, panic.
While the glasses didn’t get rid of all of my symptoms, they have allowed me to return to some of my regular routines, which is HUGE! Like jaybird said, I would paint my face green to relieve symptoms, but am glad my doctor recommended the glasses instead. maybe I will paint my face green and wear the glasses…

I too ordered a couple of pairs of glasses rom the University of Utah. I live in Chicago so I sent them the untreated glasses plus forty bucks and they sent me the final glasses with tint. This was before I went on anti-depressants (Celexa).
The glasses made a huge difference and allowed me to function at work under bright lights. I basically wore them from the minute I got up to the minute I went to sleep, except sometimes at night in the dark I would wear my regular glasses. Everyone at work accused me of trying to look like Bono (LOL)
However, once I went on the Celexa and my balance started to really improve, I stopped wearing the glasses, and I only use them now as sunglasses.
So if someone is in the early stages of finding simple little things that can make life better if you have MAV, then it is worth a try.
