Which pair is right for me?
Choosing the right pair of sunglasses to best
The everyday basic dark tinted sunglasses dont
always block the UV rays. UV rays are powerful
ray from the sun that can cause sunburns to
the eyes. Sunburn to the eyes can trigger a
migraine attack to occur. Some people taking
medications can cause to eyes to be sensitive
to UV rays and sunglasses that dont protect
you from UV rays can be more harmful. When buying
sunglasses be sure the tag says protection against
both UVA and UVB rays.
Even sunglasses that have both UVA and UVB
ray protection dont eliminate all triggering
light forms. If scattered or glared light is
a trigger for your migraines then you should
also get sunglasses that have Polaroid lenses.
With all sunglasses you should check for any
distortion, sometimes they may have not been
properly molded or grounded. Check for the proper
optical grade that suites you, if you wear glasses
then you dont want to grab any pair, this
may effect your sight causing pain in your eye
socket therefore triggering a migraine.
Another thing to look for is the framework.
They make sunglasses in all shapes and forms,
mainly to conform to the latest trends, just
say you get a pair that is oval or heart shaped,
these may work if the lenses properly cover
the eyes and protects them from the UV rays
that may trigger your migraine. Not saying not
to use them, just saying that if you start to
get a migraine you may want to get a pair that
covers more of your eyes. Also in the frame
work you need to make sure they fit freely,
you dont want a pair that is uncomfortable
or to tight against the temples.
Just say you have a pair that is a little tight,
this tightness can cause stress in the temple
area and therefore causing stress triggers or
maybe even a tension headache that triggers
your migraine. If after you search for the best
pair and your migraines persists due to light
sensitivity you may want to consult a physician
and get a prescribe pair that may be more suitable
for your needs.
