Book Appointment

Do you ever suffer from headaches, especially after a concussion or when exposed to certain light conditions? You’re not alone. Many people face this challenge. But there’s good news: optometrists can provide a solution called FL-41 tinted spectacle glasses that may help reduce those bothersome symptoms. In this blog, we’ll explore how FL-41 tinted glasses, offered by eye doctors, can be a game-changer for those dealing with headaches and concussions.

FL-41 tint is a special pinkish or rose-colored lens coating developed to filter specific wavelengths of light. It was originally designed to help people with light sensitivity issues, but it has also shown promise in alleviating symptoms related to concussions and migraines.

How FL-41 Tint Works

Light Sensitivity Reduction:

FL-41 tint is particularly effective in blocking out certain wavelengths of light that are known to trigger light sensitivity and discomfort in many individuals. This means it can help reduce eye strain and discomfort caused by light.

Improved Visual Comfort:

For people recovering from a concussion, bright or flickering lights can be a trigger for headaches and discomfort. FL-41 tint can create a more comfortable visual environment by reducing the intensity of these troublesome lights.

Decreased Light-Induced Symptoms:

Some people experience symptoms like nausea, dizziness, or fatigue when exposed to specific lighting conditions. FL-41 tint can help decrease these symptoms, making it easier to go about your daily activities.
