Photophobia Glasses with FL-41 filter

Are you sensitive to light?

Do you suffer with:

  • Migraine headaches
  • Blepharospasm
  • Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)
  • Sensitivity to fluorescent lighting
  • Motion sickness
  • Nighttime driving discomfort

People who suffer from Photophobia (sensitivity to light) can get relief wearing the right frame and lens combination. Simply blocking more light by using darker and darker lenses isn’t the answer. It can actually make your vision worst as light levels get less so does the quality of your vision.

Research back in the 1990s by Birmingham University found that by using certain filters in glasses they could dramatically reduce the risk of triggering patients migraine headaches, blepharospasm, light-triggered seizures and CVS (Computer Vision Syndrome). After extensive testing, the filter used was given the code FL-41. The filter works by blocking certain colours in the colour spectrum. We use to same the same filter as used in the research.

The frame also plays an important role, we prefer to use wrap-around design frames that follow the contour of your head. The frames we use have thick side arms to ensure no light can pass through the side of the frame. The lenses have both UVA & UVB filters, colour FL-41

When treating any medical condition we would always recommend you seek the advice of your eye doctor (ophthalmologist) or GP before you make a purchase.
