19 Sep Reader’s Mail: FL-41 Glasses for Migraine
Q. Do FL-41 glasses work for migraine?
A. FL-41 tinted lenses are rose-colored and may help address the symptom of light sensitivity (photophobia) commonly associated with migraine. Although research is limited, there may some benefit clinically and migraine potentially may be reduced in frequency and severity, particularly in patients with strong symptoms of photophobia both indoors and outdoors (bright lights, fluorescent lights, sunlight, etc.). Larger randomized, controlled clinical trials are needed to see if there is a true benefit versus placebo.
