These glasses have helped me slowly feel like a normal person again after a head injury that has caused serious migraines and sensitivity to screens and light. I had been wearing blue light glasses for a while and finding that they didn’t help. I can’t live without these now. While they work like a charm, I wouldn’t say I actually like the style on me and I wish there were more styles to choose from. They are super fragile and the things that rest on your nose bother me. Didn’t exchange them bc I didn’t feel like I could go a week or two without the glasses waiting for another pair. I’ll also say that on zoom these glasses look much redder than they do in real life. If you’re recovering from a head I jury and struggling, I highly recommend the investment.
I’ve had serious light sensitivity since after cataract surgery. What a godsend to find a product that actually works to relieve pain and headaches that bright light caused!
I’m very happy with your proud & want to especially point out Andrea’s excellent customer support & speedy response to my email inquiries. You can be proud of her pleasant & professional skills!
I was very hesitant to order these glasses because of the cost. I live in Canada and had to pay an additional $75 in duty charges so they ended up being close to $600. I’m in my early 30’s and have had chronic migraine for over a decade. Within the last few years they have become more frequent (3-4 times a week). I have seen many specialists and have tried many medications and supplements to find relief. I tried blue light glasses and found they did nothing. My avulux glasses allow me to stare at a screen for work all day and sit in front of a bright window without triggering a migraine. The days that I do feel any type of head pain I find that with my glasses on I can continue to carry on with daily tasks and work in front of a screen without the pain getting significantly worse. I still have to take medication but the severity of my migraines has diminished, which I’ll take any day!
Even though these glasses are quite expensive, I would recommend these to anyone suffering with migraine.
These glasses have seriously changed my life. I haven't been able to go outside during the day without getting a headache or migraine for quite some time. I've been trying to treat the migraines with meds but that solution still falls short sometimes. Adding these glasses to my treatment has given me my life back. Now I can go outside and open the blinds without the debilitating pain. So happy I found these!
I have issues with photo phobia and migraines. The photo phobia and migraines can extremely debilitating and, as a professional who makes an income via billable hours, its a big deal. I was worried that I would get photo phobia during the bar exam so I brought my avulux glasses to the exam. Without failure the second day of the exam I started to feel the photo phobia and migraine coming on. I immediately put my avulux glasses on, my eyes instantly felt extremely relaxed and I was able to complete the next five hours of testing. Oh yea and I PASSED!! I know I wouldn't have passed if I didn't have these glasses with me, they are truly a life saver and I bring them to the office everyday.
I developed photophobia following cataract surgery, I am very sensitive to light. I have tried glasses from two other companies for my condition. I would have to say that these glasses from Avulux are the best for indoor us. As for outdoor use, being in the bright sun, I feel that I need darker lens. I don't believe Avulux offers a transitional lens or sunglasses.
Love these glasses. My wife works 8-10hrs per day starring at a screen and it has made a huge help with her eye fatigue. Have recommended these to many friends. Great product, love the look and ease.
After several months of light sensitivity triggered migraines, I was desperate for some help while waiting for the right medication to work. I chose Avulux because the science led me here—no other glasses were offering the same level of protection while blocking out harmful blue, amber and red light. Additionally, I really wanted a pair that looked as natural as possible indoors, whilst appearing as sunglasses outdoors. I went with the Lilu clear frames, which were totally the right choice for me. I have to wear them every day as my migraine is chronic, but they have helped cut down my attacks significantly, so I would absolutely recommend anyone in a similar position to try them. I will definitely be keeping mine.
Good relief for my eyes when they are extra sensitive. Overall really like the glasses. Only reason for not giving it a 5 is limited frame selections/color options.
I get daily migraine attacks and my Avulux glasses really help me manage the photophobia. I tried FL-41 lenses but they made me nauseous. I wear my Avulux glasses daily!
First at all, English is not my first language, so forgive me if there is any grammar mistake.
Background: I have been with chronic migraine since Oct 2019, and Intractable since May 2021. Light sensitivity was a huge symptom and for months my house was always with the blind down in total dark, for dinner we use the light from the rangehoood and every other light off , I wear sunglasses at home and was very difficult to get out of the house. Even light from shopping centre hurt.
I got the Avulux glasses on Jan 2022. I used them for two weeks in a row 24/7. The change is incredible, I can see clearly and enjoy the sun, my tolerance to the computer increase from 20 min to 2 hours (April 2022). Now I use them when I am in the computer, to go out, or when the attack is more than 4/10. I wear prescriptions glasses at home and I can see the improvement into my light sensitivity.
The glasses itself are super lightweight and comfortable. I love the colour of the frame (I order Lilu with Clip-on RED) I download the app OCHO and have a look at the frames before making the purchase, this app is amazing and the look is incredible accurate. Back in January they only have two models with the option to clip-on for prescription.
I hope this helps. I love the Avulux glasses and they helped me a lot with my light sensitivity.
Excellent product. I was wearing dark wrap around sun glasses for a long time which made my eyes more light sensitive. Since getting the Avulux my eyes have greatly improved. I no longer get dry eye every day from working at a computer all day. Irritation days are so low their almost non-existent. Day one I noticed a difference from putting them on. I could feel the difference in activity in my brain. After a couple weeks my eyes are not as light sensitive as before and no more random headaches from the lights. My day in general has become less stressful from use of these glasses. Now I just wear them everywhere, outside, inside, work at a computer, looking at my phone, I sometimes even use them to watch TV in the evening.
Only been using them for two weeks but so far so good!
I've been wearing my Avulux glasses for just under a month. I suffer from severe photosensitivity (plus pattern glare, after image, and all sorts of other fun stuff). Since my glasses arrived, I have had NO full-blown ocular migraines, whereas before I was getting them almost nightly and having occasional migraine with aura during the day. The glasses have made a huge difference as far as computer use as well. I had previously tried a blue light blocking lens and this is not the same! Highly recommend for anyone who suffers from migraines with a strong photosensitivity component.
I have not been able to take these off since receiving them!! They've made such a huge difference in my life. So glad I went ahead with it.
ok they definitely do improve my quality of life- i was just kind of dealing with light sensitivity and chronic migraines for YEARS until i picked these up in january. since then, i have experienced less headaches and my eyes dont feel sore at the end of the day. the best way i can describe the feeling of wearing them is that they reduce light intensity without actually making it darker. i have reducted one star for some fairly minor complaints- they are not truly color neutral and slightly tint your vision. the tint is not noticable after 10 minutes or so, but occasionally i find it difficult to differentiate between minute color changes. (this is ultimately not a big deal and usually means i just take the glasses off at night) i also would prefer a slightly studier build on the frames, the Bli frames loosen at the **** easily. HOWEVER i have just noticed that avulux is now allowing you to ship your own frames to them! so i am already picking out some frames i like to do just that. :)
overall, excellent stuff. 9/10
if you are on the fence about getting them please try them out
I have been light sensitive since I had a stroke. I have been wearing the glasses almost 14 hrs a day, every day and I finally have some relief.
Love these glasses, they have been so helpful with my light sensitivity isssues and has reduced the number of migraines I experienced since regularly wearing my glasses.
I was skeptical about these glasses after trying so many things to help with migraine and having nothing work. And I was really worried that I would pay a lot of money for them with no benefit. But, I decided I had to try because migraine can be so debilitating. These glasses really do help and I'm really happy that I purchased them. For me personally, they don't stop me from getting migraine (I have chronic migraine and I don't believe they are triggered by light), however my pain intensity and light sensitivity lowers when I use these glasses and makes it so I have gotten a bit of my life back. I especially find the glasses to be helpful at work and I have had to take lass days off work as a result. Overall, very happy with my purchase!

"With Avulux I can now spend time with my family and not have to be stuck in my bedroom (my dark room) all day anymore. My pain is less frequent and less intense. Works better than any medicine I've tried."
"I suffer from vestibular migraines and am still trying to understand my triggers. Previously, when a migraine started I'd anticipate being out from work for a week because staring at screens would make me sick. Since getting these, I've been able to look at my computer screens for hours without exacerbating the issue. I've also been wearing these while in situations with heavy overhead lighting (indoor volleyball, grocery stores, etc.) They work well while playing sports indoors, and that has been a huge game-changer. My one-star detractor is based on the embarrassment I have wearing these on Zoom calls. Now that people are familiar with me wearing them, there are no real comments but I had to muster a fair amount of courage to wear them in the first place."
"This will be my second review, my first being back in November when i was blown away by the immediate differences.
I'm writing this one because at the weekend i tested my avulux glasses (and myself) to the max and I am truly blown away once again.
My light sensitivity due to migraine is present with or without an attack, so much so that I have a severe attack from strobing lighting that mimics a seizure in aspects and i lose days to a week from the side effects.
So a gig? Out of the question.
Until winter blues and depression reared their ugly head and I was so DONE with this illness controlling my life. As fate would have it one of my favourite artists announced a UK tour.
With how well my avulux glasses had got me through triggering environments, I risked it and ordered the tickets, despite knowing previous attempts at night life ended up in a&e.
The day of the gig of course I woke up with a migraine attack, i very almost didn't go, but I took painkillers and away i went.
The venue gave me some accomodations to make my night easier and less anxiety ridden, I had my ear plugs in, dosed up on pain killers to take the edge off the head pain and my glasses on ready to enjoy what i could of the gig.
Well thanks to my avulux glasses I didn't have to leave, or spend the majority of it with my head down and shielding my eyes, I not only managed to watch and dance along in my chair, but I enjoyed myself! I didn't end up with a severe attack or a trip to a&e! (I did have a classic attack for 3 days but to me, I'd take that over the severe attacks I would otherwise experience!)
These glasses consistently prove their worth ten fold, time and time again, and each day that I tackle a triggering environment is one more step back to feeling like my old self and not so suffocated by migraine.
So if you're debating taking the plunge to try a pair out, do it! It will be one of the best decisions you make.
"I pondered this purchase for 2 years and then finally went for it and I’m so glad I did and wish I hadn’t waited. I love them so much I bought the clip on lenses to go over my readers and they work perfectly!"
