Sensitive Eyes

Abnormal eye sensitivity and intolerance to light, especially sunlight.

The Most Effective Sunglass Lenses For Those With Sensitive Eyes

Millions of people in the US and in the world have medical conditions that cause them to be very sensitive to light—especially the brightness of the sun and glare. 

Those who suffer from migraine headaches are probably the largest single group of "photophobic" people worldwide. Those with sensitive eyes have been challenged when looking for sunglasses that are dark enough, or that work well enough, to properly protect their eyes and provide visual relief and enjoyment under the sun.

Sunglass companies have overlooked and neglected those with severe eye sensitivity, a condition that greatly impacts millions of lives on a daily basis.
