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.
