Migraine glasses / Lenses


#12

Hi skim,

The main advantages for me are that my eyes are much less strained at the end of the day. My brain feels less sensitive with them as opposed to without. Unfortunately my main purpose for them was to help my use computer screens which they don’t seem to have worked for, I think this is because its more the motion things which trigger it for me.

I’ve not heard of theraspecs so can’t really compare I’m afraid.

It has only been another week for me at this point, but they are still working well for me. They really seem to help when I am shopping, and plan on using them in all fluorescent lighted stores for the time being, save a few trials without to see if symptoms get worse without the glasses.

This has been so helpful.
I wear glasses already which have a transitional lense, and want to get a pair of migraine specific sunglasses that will fit over them.
I’m kind of leaning toward the MIgralens mainly because of the cost compared to Axonoptics

**UPDATE: **
I just ordered the indoor/outdoor over the glasses Theraspecs

I hope these are as helpful as people have written. I will definitely post a follow up.

Can you use these glasses with your own glasses, or is it for people who don’t wear glasses only ?

When I was looking into them, they had clip ons, etc. if you wanted to just modify your existing glasses. They can also put your prescription into their lenses when you order.

I wear glasses and ordered the ones that go over them. I haven’t received them yet.
They do have several other types that are for folks who don’t wear glasses.

I have just started using a pair from Axon Optics. Very quick delivery to Australia and I appreciate the money-back guarantee they offer.
After just a few days’ use at work where I am constantly at the computer under fluorescent lights, I notice an amazing difference. I have so much more energy and a clearer head at the end of the day.
I have missed so many days of work because of dizziness and headache… what a relief! Hopefully they continue to help.
I also wore them in a shopping centre which is usually a big trigger for me - no problems at all. :mrgreen:
The pair I ordered don’t suit my face so well, so I will choose my own frame and have the lenses put into those.
Worth a try if you’re considering it!

I have the Migralens glasses and they have helped me at work! I have fleuro lights and am on the computer most of the day. I have found it takes longer until dizziness kicks in…


#20

I have the Axon lenses and have found them to reduce my sensitivity to computer screens and the bright lights in places like grocery stores.

I also have a pair of their outdoor lenses that I use as sunglasses when driving. They are more comfortable on my eyes than other sunglasses I’ve worn, but the effect is not as dramatic as with the indoor pair on the computer.

You can get them with prescriptions lenses. It’s a special tint called FL-41

I had to spend a week making phone calls before my optometrist found a lab that would use it. I can’t wait for mine to come in!

Hi

I can’t get that link to work.

What colour are the lenses tinted? Do you look like an idiot wearing them?

Sorry, just google FL 41 Tint. The color will depend on how dark the lab makes them. It’s like dying your clothes., you can adjust the darkness. The recommended darkness is 55% I think. The color should be a rosy orange. I will look stupid wearing them as I look horrid in pink, but I’m hoping it will be worth it. I have a friend who got the tint a year ago and she looks adorable. Just depends on you and your glasses. Perhaps you only wear them in under lights or while on a computer and just resign yourself to a unique look.


#24

Googled it. God, I gotta be honest, I really don’t want to be wearing those in the office, people will think I’m mental.

But if it works, I guess it’s worth it.


#25

I wear mine all over the place, and honestly, no one really gives it a second look. They kind of end up looking like transitions lenses that are mid-transition, so I don’t think people find it all that odd. And if they do, uhhh they can suck it up and look away! :smiley:


#26

hi
if these are going to help me stay in the office and do my job, then they will def be worth it.

I am keen - i already wear glasses and i am having an eye test next week - i am going to try and get 2 pairs - 1 normal and 1 for migralens - anyone ordered them for prescription glasses?


#27

if they let u keep working then its prob worth it. that is a good point if anyone asks you can say they are transition lenses or something like that- you can say you have a weird prescription and these help you the most or something like that.


#28

My eye doctor just called and mine are in! Woo!
I’ll try and post a picture of them this weekend.


#29

My new glasses. They are pretty dark. I think if they work I will have the next pair made just a little lighter. Oh and on different lenses. I don’t like the shape of these.


#30

tracy u look very dizzy chic!


#31

My first pair was just a stock pair, and then I ordered my second pair with a prescription in it and in my own frames. I rarely wear the non-prescription ones anymore, mainly just to work in, since it is so nice to have the Rx in it.
