We are happy to announce that we are now providers of Avulux lenses for migraines and light sensitivity!

Migraines are more than just severe headaches; they are complex neurological events that can profoundly impact various bodily functions, particularly vision. About 60% of migraines are triggered by light and symptoms of migraines can include light sensitivity or inability to look at screens. Being able to limit the frequency and severity of migraines can be extremely helpful for those who suffer.

Avulux lenses are specially designed to help migraine sufferers by filtering out specific wavelengths of light that can trigger or worsen migraines. These lenses selectively filter out blue and amber light, which are often implicated in causing discomfort for migraine sufferers. By reducing exposure to these wavelengths, Avulux lenses can help alleviate light sensitivity and potentially reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks.

These lenses can be integrated into regular eyeglasses and worn throughout the day or during specific activities that might trigger migraines, such as using a computer or being exposed to bright lights. Many patients find significant relief from their symptoms when using Avulux lenses as part of their migraine management strategy.
