migraines and severe headaches

We at Specs2U take the optical health of our customers very seriously.  That’s why we insist on 30 minute eye tests, to have time to identify and address problems which affect them.

Over recent years we’ve been struck by how many of our customers inform us (before or during their eye examination) of problems relating to migraines and severe headaches – often amongst office workers or those that have to work under artificial lights or in front of computers.

The exact cause of migraines is unknown but thought to be the result of abnormal brain activity affecting nerve signals in the brain.

Often people have a specific ‘trigger’ which can be hormonal, physical or environmental. 


Our Solution

We have a couple of lenses that have helped considerably with migraine sufferers and we have seen significant success with the Blueshield lens. 

In addition, the specialist lens we use for dyslexia has also proved very effective in reducing the incidence of migraines (often eliminating them completely).

In fact, we’re so confident in our lenses we offer a free non-tolerance money-back guarantee.

If you’d like to know more, e-mail us at info@specs2u.co.uk or call in at your local branch to discuss how we can help you.

case study

A female customer was experiencing a migraine attack every day while at work and was on the verge of leaving her job as a result.  She had tried medication, diet changes and other remedies with no effect.  As a last resort she came for an eye examination and was prescribed a small prescription and Blueshield lenses.  She informed us two months after picking up the glasses that she had had one migraine attack in those two months – and that attack was the day she forgot to take her glasses to work.  She has subsequently gone over a year with virtually no migraine attacks.

case study 

A male customer works in design and is front of a computer for more than 8 hours every day and found that he was experiencing headaches at the end of most working days. Despite having near perfect eyesight he found that the Blueshield lens was more relaxing on his eyes and after using the lens informed us that the incidence of headaches was significantly reduced. 


case study

A female customer suffering from migraines on a fairly regular basis (2-3 times a week) and also with a complex prescription found after her eye test with Specs2U that her existing glasses (from another optician) were apparently contributing to her optical issues.  We gave her the specialist lens with an anti-glare coating and she has informed us that not only has she not had a migraine attack since but she now sees more clearly in work as well.
