Blepharospasm Cure

  • By Melissamin

    My fiance has been suffering from chronic migraines due to blepharospasm for a few years now. We’ve tried pharmaceuticals, herbs, acupuncture, massage, etc to try to alleviate them….and although some help, it is only temporarily. His friend recommended a pair of tinted glasses called Axon Optics because supposedely they are the best “natural fix” for blepharospasm (according to this https://www.axonoptics.com/blepharospasm-treatment/) ….before going out and buying them right away though, I was hoping to get some more feedback/suggestions/advice. Anyone ever tried those ones out or other brands?
    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Hi Melissamin,

    Thank you for your question. Yes, I know several people who love Axon glasses as well as those who love TheraSpecs. I’ve have a pair of TheraSpecs I show to my local migraine support group, and always get positive responses. Your boyfriend may also want to check them out here; http://www.theraspecs.com/why-theraspecs/.

    Good luck and let us know which one he chooses, please.
    Nancy

    Thanks for the response Nancy and the recommendation, we went ahead and ordered the Axon Optics last week and he tried them out for the first time Friday at work. He said for the first time he has been at this job, he has made it through the entire work day with no head pain or eye strain. First time in 6 years! He still has sensitivity to perfume he says (makes sense since I don’t think a pair of glasses could fix that haha) but his light sensitivity has obviously pretty much diminished. He will of course put them to the test tomorrow for the full work week but based on his first day…he loves them so far. (I do to since he comes home in a much better mood now). Thank you again for the article.

    Hi Melissa,
    I am so glad to hear that! I have a similar experience with my TheraSpecs (which is the same tint). I hope they continue to help him!
    Be well,
    Lisa
