Glasses for Vestibular Migraine

You get dizzy? Like, really dizzy, where you can’t do much if you can get up at all.

It's not a “too much spinning on the playground equipment” dizziness. No, it comes out of the blue and can last several minutes or drag on for days and you have this feeling of spinning or moving.

On top of all that, you may have a headache, see flashing or shimmering lights, and experience a sensitivity to sound or light, or both.

Axon Optics therapeutic eyewear can be an effective (and natural) way to relieve symptoms from vestibular disorders. Research studies have shown that glasses for migraine can relieve painful light sensitivity and reduce migraine attacks.

Axon Optics migraine glasses were created by Dr. Bradley Katz, MD, Ph.D., who is a neuro-ophthalmologist. Dr. Katz’s research expertise includes light sensitivity (“photophobia”) and neurologic conditions associated with light sensitivity, such as migraine.

Why Axon Optics Vestibular Glasses?

  • Created by a neuro-ophthalmologist and researcher named Dr. Bradley J. Katz, who has been treating patients for over 20 years.
  • Designed out of a lab at the University of Utah’s Moran Eye Center.
  • Lens options: indoor, outdoor, and transition lenses.
  • Glasses include an advanced anti-glare coating to prevent light from reflecting off of the backside of the lens into your eye - reduces smudges, fingerprints, and scratches.
  • Founded by a neuro-ophthalmologist, photonics researcher, and ophthalmic entrepreneur.
  • Our proprietary rose-tinted lenses have tested to be significantly better than generic FL-41 offered by most optical shops.

Migraine Studies

This is what can happen when you start wearing Axon Optics glasses for migraine and light sensitivity.


In a recent study, a team of academic researchers analyzed how this type of lens affects patients with a light-sensitive condition called BEB. By wearing the lens, the patients saw a 2x improvement in their severity of light sensitivity compared to wearing regular grey lenses.


A study performed by researchers at the University of Birmingham tested a group of migraine patients by having them wear migraine glasses with FL-41 lenses. Participants experienced a reduction in the number of migraines, from over 6 episodes per month to under 2 episodes per month.

Do Tinted Glasses for Vestibular Disorders Work?

Since everybody is different and unique, we can't say for certain that our indoor eyewear for migraines will provide light sensitivity relief or a reduction in the number of migraine episodes you have per month.

However, based on the amount of 5-star reviews we've received AND the overwhelmingly positive results from our clinically validated HIT-6 survey given to over 1,000 users, we can say that the odds of finding some relief are in your favor!

If you're one of the few that don't find relief, we offer a very generous 60-day return policy.
