If you suffer from migraines, you know just how debilitating they can be. Up to 60% of migraine attacks are triggered by light. On top of that, the light sensitivity experienced during a migraine attack can be bad enough to make you want to shut yourself away in a dark room for hours. Unfortunately, medications can be expensive and have unwanted side effects.
Here’s the good news:
Avulux, a new lens technology, has been shown to relieve migraines in 90% of wearers. You may have tried tinted lenses in the past with limited success. Avulux is more than just a tint. It effectively filters out blue, amber, and red wavelengths of light. These wavelengths have been shown to stimulate the melanopsin-secreting cells in your eyes which leads to migraine attacks and light-triggered pain. Avulux also allows the passage of soothing green wavelengths which can help alleviate symptoms. The lenses are color neutral meaning that there is no color distortion while wearing them.
A lot of research went into designing this technology. Avulux is the only migraine and light sensitivity lens to ever be proven effective at the highest standard of clinical testing: an independent, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial. That’s a lot of words… Translation: it works!
You can wear Avulux as soon as you feel a migraine coming on or when you are light sensitive. You can also wear it to prevent migraines from ever starting, particularly when you are exposed to light-based triggers such as extended screen time or when you are exposed to harsh lights such as overhead fluorescents. Avulux works best for people who have light sensitivity and/or light-triggered migraines.
Take control of your migraines and light sensitivity with no side effects and no recurring costs.
