Amber contact lenses

A recent small study suggests that wearing red colored contact lenses can relieve pain of a migraine attack. A recent small study suggests that wearing red colored contact lenses can relieve pain of a migraine attack. At the NYHC we have tried this approach and in a several patients it made a dramatic difference. One woman has found that she no longer has to be confined to a dark room and is able to go outside wearing these lenses without developing a migraine from bright daylight. Some patients wear these lenses all the time, while others only when they have a headache. Sunglasses do not offer the same level of light filtering,uinless they are of wraparound type and fit tightly around the eyes.

    I have been wearing amber contacts from Nike Maxsight, you have to get them at the eye doctor. Yes, they make a dramatic difference. I am actually to the point of disabled by refractory migraine and I wear these contacts from morning till night. They are the only thing that allows me to leave the house. I tell people the relief they provide is like putting water on a a burn. The contacts are more helpful than all of the meds. You must try them.

    Since the nike contacts have been discontinued, where can my eye doctor and I find similar lenses?
