Experience The Freedom Of Contact Lenses

For those experiencing migraine and light sensitivity, seeking suitable options for management can be challenging.

Optometrist Parramatta now offers Avulux Migraine & Light Sensitivity Lenses, which are designed to precisely filter light, and may assist in reducing the impact of light on migraines. 

Light and Migraine: The Connection

Up to 60% of migraine attacks are triggered by light exposure, particularly blue and amber wavelengths. These wavelengths affect eye cells that secrete melanopsin, contributing to migraine and increased pain sensitivity. Conversely, green light may be soothing and less likely to exacerbate migraines.

Avulux Lenses: Unique Technology

Avulux lenses feature patented technology that filters up to 97% of harmful blue, amber, and red light, while allowing over 70% of soothing green light. This balance may help manage migraine and light sensitivity. These lenses are also designed to be colour neutral, providing relief without affecting visual perception.
