Default Migraine Attacks

Hi!

Short question. My doctor said I should wear sun glasses in school against light sensivity. Well, I have a lot of migraine symptoms also like falsehs, migraine headaches etc. Would it be clever to think about proffesional migraine glasses like this?

Any tipps will help!
Thanks!

Default Sunglasses

Lui,
I wear prescription sunglasses all the time now instead of contact lens. It has helped a lot with migraine headaches and visual problems. I went to Lens Crafters (don't know where your located but should be one at your local mall if your in the U.S) anyway, Lens Crafters has all the different tints. You pick out your frames and then the lens and the color that you want them. I went just a little darker than the migraine lens. You can custom make your glasses this way. I love that place and would highly recommend it. Plus you can get all the cool brand name frames and put any kind and color lens you want in them. They have a couple different tints for migraine headaches. This really helps. Do it.

Lui,

I would try off the shelf polarized sun glasses first. If you still struggle, you might try something more specialized. Start simple first.

I have worn sunglasses since my sophomore year in high school. I wear automatic tinting glasses.

My best to you.

I was in class with a guy who always wore sunglasses, the teachers got upset until he explained that it was for health reasons, no one else really cared.
Live Long and Prosper!

Since the first concussion I have continually knocked my head into different things purely by accident or from being stupid. These many concussions over a short period of time have caused
constant migraines, nausea, and dizziness/lack of balance.
Migraine triggers are:
light sensitivity (especially to florescent or bright lights)
sound sensitivity (especially to high pitched or loud sounds)
temperature sensitivity (especially to cold or extreme heat)
activity (especially if breathing increases or head is jostled)
pressure on head (sinuses, hats, headbands, sunglasses, pony-tails)
lacks or quality (food, sleep, water)
tension (stress, tight muscles, tired eyes, sickness)
