Navigating Migraine Shields - Which Lens Is Best For You?

Anyone who suffers from migraine has most likely experienced a form of light sensitivity during an attack. For some, going to a big box store is torture when you don’t have anything to protect you from the fluorescent lights. And if you work on a computer for 8+ hours a day, it can be an impossible task when you’re undergoing a migraine attack.

That’s where Migraine Shields comes into play. Our lenses are the perfect tool for a migraineur to have in their kit to help prevent and alleviate debilitating light sensitivity when an attack strikes. While we offer two different types of lenses to help during this incapacitating time, which one is best?

Let’s break it down below. 

Everyday Lens

Just like it states above, this lens is the perfect solution for your day-to-day tasks. If you have your migraine under control with preventative medications or only suffer from attacks a few times a month, this is the lens for you. You will instantly feel relief while wearing these and they’ll help keep your attacks at bay. 

Our Everyday Lens gives you full protection. It blocks 45% of blue light from your digital devices that emit at 455nm, which is 17x more than other blue light solutions. It also blocks over 93% of high energy visible light. This lens is built for optimal protection while wearing at work, out running errands, and is our most popular among eye care doctors.

Episodic Lens

We suggest our Episodic Lens for those who have been diagnosed with chronic migraine or have more than 5+ attacks per month. The lens is slightly darker than our Everyday lens and will provide more relief when your symptoms are unbearable. 

Our Episodic Lens blocks 59% of blue light from your digital devices that emit at 455nm, which is nearly 20x more than other blue light solutions. This lens has a bit more color and is our most popular home lens for those with migraine episodes or wearing while watching TV in the evening.


Regardless of which lens you choose; you will be protecting your eyes from migraine-inducing light. We can’t wait for you to not only see the difference in our lenses but feel the soothing relief during your next migraine attack.
