VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron LENSES FOR LIGHT-SENSITIVE EYES If your eyes are sensitive to light as a result of migraines, post- concussion syndrome, or any of the many other light-sensitive conditions, you should ask about "FL-41" lenses. These precision-tinted, rose-colored, therapeutic lenses were first developed to help alleviate migraine symptoms in young children, particularly against the harm caused by fluorescent (FL) lighting. They work by blocking about 90 percent of blue-green light (within the spectrum of 480-520 nanometers), which clinical research has found to be responsible for triggering or aggravating "photophobia" (or light sensitivity that causes light to be perceived as being be too bright, too painful, or both) in conditions like migraines. In fact, there are over 50 conditions that have photophobia as a symptom. Staying out of sunlight and keeping the lights dimmed inside can help make photophobia less uncomfortable. Keeping your eyes closed or covering them with dark, tinted glasses can also provide relief. Consult your doctor immediately if you're experiencing severe light sensitivity. SKOWRON EYE CARE has been providing personal, cutting-edge eye care for patients in the Western suburbs since 1983. At Skowron Eye Care, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S. Photophobia is a neurological issue that involves communication between receptors in the eye and the brain. SKOWRON EYE CARE 370 N.
