CR Surfacing introduces innovative, light-blocking Avulux lenses through New Zealand’s eye care professionals
CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand – August 24, 2022 – CR Surfacing Laboratories, New Zealand’s premier prescription lens manufacturer, is partnering with Avulux to make innovative, effective migraine lenses available through the country’s eye care professionals.
This means New Zealand’s estimated 642,000 migraine sufferers now have access to the world’s first clinically proven lens for migraine and light sensitivity management. According to Migraine Foundation Aotearoa New Zealand, migraine disease is more common than many other conditions that cause pain or affect the brain, and is more prevalent than diabetes, epilepsy and asthma combined.
“Avulux lenses deliver relief,” said Sasha Sergejew, Commercial Development Director, CR Surfacing. “That’s why we are so pleased to partner with this innovative company to make this innovation available to New Zealanders who live with migraine. Avulux can be life-changing.”
Avulux is a scientifically proven, non-pharmaceutical option for managing light to help people living with migraine. It works by filtering light across the blue, amber and red spectrums, which is a key trigger in as many as 60 per cent of migraine episodes. Often people with migraine are forced to retreat to a dark, isolated room until their symptoms pass. However, independent clinical studies have shown that Avulux wearers report no light sensitivity at hour two of their migraine attack 72% of the time.
Patients can ask for Avulux lenses when they visit their eye care professional, whether or not they require a vision prescription.
“Avulux is a safe, effective way to manage light to help people with migraine get through their days,” said Dr. Charles Posternack, physician and founder of Avulux. “People around the world have experienced migraine relief after choosing our lenses, and we are thrilled to be working with CR Surfacing to bring this option to New Zealand.”
