ABSTRACT
Email Sarah at s.stacey@you.co.uk Sarah reads all your emails but regrets that she cannot answer them all personally Many migraine sufferers report that bright light of any kind (from fluorescent to sunlight) makes headaches worse or triggers an attack. An office-bound friend who suffers from light-sensitive migraines recommends MigraLens glasses, which can help to minimise flicker and glare. Recommended by the charity Migraine Action Association (migraine.org.uk) after a successful trial by members, the glasses have a special lens filter designed to absorb light at the migraine-causing red and blue end of the spectrum. They also absorb 100 per cent of UVA and UVB light. 'The moment the office lights bother me, making my eyes and temples ache, I put on my MigraLens, and often the pain will subside immediately,' she says. 'If a migraine develops, the glasses help reduce the pain and duration. Certainly it's a relief to wear them until I can lie down in a dark room.' Non-prescription MigraLens glasses start from £45; clip-ons from £49, and prescription glasses from £113, from MediView, tel: 020 8933 7914, migralens.com
