What’s something new you’re trying out to manage your migraine symptoms?
I have a visual disability called oscillopsia, which in its simplest form manifests as bouncing vision. How I visually interact with the world directly correlates to my chronic migraine, so my eye doctor is a key member of my medical team.
🤓 Something new I’m trying out: Acuvue Oasys Max Daily Contact Lenses
💡 These lenses were specifically developed for “people with a digital lifestyle.” They are supposed to filter out blue-violet light from screens, fluorescent/LED lights, and the sun. Ideally, they can help migraine patients like me who regularly experience photosensitivity.
⚠️ So far, I’m cautiously optimistic. The lenses themselves are a little less wet than I was hoping for (which is important since I’m currently being tested for autoimmune conditions that can cause chronic dry eye), but they really do dim the world ever so slightly and looking at my computer hasn’t been as taxing lately. Ideally they’ll have a positive impact on my pain levels, but the jury is still out.
What about you?
