For some people whose migraines are triggered by certain visual patterns, precision-tinted glasses seem to help. According to Jie Huang, associate professor of radiology at Michigan State University, people who have migraine, accompanied by “aura” such as flashes of light may benefit from the glasses.  In a study Huang led, patients looked at various “stressful” patterns wearing three different pairs of glasses. Patients with a history of migraine felt less discomfort when looking at the patterns through the precision-tinted glasses.

A company called Axon Optics applies a rose-colored tint called FL-41 to eyeglasses.  The tint works to block the wavelengths of light that can trigger migraines and can be added to most eyeglasses.  The company’s website is….. Cephalagia
