Axon Optics migraine glasses with Jura frame

This month I am giving away over $950 worth of my favorite migraine-friendly products to promote the launch of my book The Migraine Relief Plan. Click here to learn how to enter the giveaway, which requires purchase of the book.

I’ll be highlighting some of the products each day as a way to thank each company for supporting my work.

Meet: Axon Optics

Why it’s migraine-friendly:

  • Created specifically to reduce migraine attacks caused by light sensitivity
  • Wearers report 60% fewer attacks and lower severity of attacks
  • Blocks a specific portion of the spectrum clinically associated with pain and migraine attacks

What they say about their product:
Co-founded by a neuro-ophthalmologist and light-sensitivity researcher at the University of Utah, Axon Optics is at the forefront of using newly-discovered optics technology in the treatment of light sensitivity. With so many people in the world suffering from migraines and other issues caused by light sensitivity, the founders wanted to share this technology with the world. For this reason, proceeds from the sale of Axon Optics products go to furthering research into additional technologies and techniques to help light-sensitive conditions.

The good news is that only a small portion of the light spectrum is responsible for migraine headaches and light sensitivity. Axon Optics lenses block just this spectrum, FL-41.”

Why I recommend it:
I learned about Axon Optics during the Migraine World Summit in 2016. I ordered a pair, since light sensitivity is a huge issue for me. I wear these on super-bright days and always in airports and conference rooms with buzzy fluorescent lighting. They have helped me enormously.

What you need to know:
You can order these in a variety of frame styles, lens types (indoor/outdoor/progressive) and even with prescription lenses. These are not sunglasses, they block just the portion of the light spectrum that causes pain and light sensitivity. If you don’t have light sensitivity as part of your migraine pattern, it’s unlikely that these will help you with your attacks.

Where to buy:
Online at Axon Optics.
