Bright light is definitely a trigger and even when light wasn't the particular trigger when a migraine starts I often wear sunglasses indoors. I even had to put them on during church Sunday because the sunlight was glaring off of the snow on a hill across the street from our church. The window it was coming in was on the other side of the sanctuary and just barely in my peripheral vision,… read more
I continue to be glad I got these, sometimes I realize a migraine is sneaking up on me when I notice I'm squinting because the lights are starting to bother me. It's amazing how quickly I start to feel better when I put my glasses on.
I have Thera Specs. I wear them with dark RX glasses.I have to wear both sets of dark glasses and sometimes 2 hats at church. 24 light bulbs in Sanctuary. I forget where my inside ones are most of the time but they do help indoors. Yes, they are expensive. I look at it as part of my medical deductions. The $20. Solar Shields work well also not the grey but the amber, I call them my "Rose colored glasses like the song. (:
Axon optics great! They can do prescriptions too!
I also have TheraSpecs and have been wearing them for about 35 days now. No one better try to take them from me! My migraines have been fewer, and the ones I've had have been less severe. I have been able to spend more time on the computer again and walk around the house without wincing with the indoor glasses over my own prescription glasses. When I go outside, I wear my own prescription sunglasses and the TheraSpecs sunglasses over them--with a hat. It is heaven. I'm still anxious to get to my destination, but it is much more soothing to make the trip.
My headache specialist/neurologist suggested I try axonoptics glasses (same concept, different brand). They offer a 30 day full refund if you're not happy so I figured I'd give it a try. I ordered a pair. The stress relief on my eyes was immediate. While they do not cure my headaches, when I wear them my headaches stay stable, most of the time I don't have to take meds and I haven't missed a single day of work since getting them. (florescent lights at work). I recommend them to everyone I know who had similar problems. And with axonoptics you can't lose. If they don't work you get your money back! They even have coupons on their site for your first purchase.
