Migraine and Light Sensitivity

Migraine Related Light Sensitivity

Nearly 5 million people in Australia are affected by migraine*.  It impacts on lifestyle, work and overall well being.  There is no cure, only ways to manage symptoms and triggers.

Migraine is a genetic neurological disease and the common migraine attack symptoms include:

  • Light sensitivity is the #1 most bothersome symptom^.
  • Debilitating headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sound and smell sensitivity
  • Brain fog and dizziness

Harvard research shows that specific blue, red, and amber light are pain triggering wavelengths, while specific green wavelengths can be soothing ~#. 

We understand how debilitating light sensitivity and migraine can be.  Days off work, avoiding places that you know are triggering or having to hide away in a dark room.  We have a long history in helping patients with precision tinted lenses for glare sensitivities and we are excited to have the opportunity of helping people migraine and light sensitivity.
