Glasses

I just got new glasses and asked if they could have them coated with FL-41. They said no but asked what type of light bothered me. I said flourescent lights. They said they coule coat for that. They had a list of things they could use for different lights and she rattled off a few. She said different labs use different codes. I got the glasses and they are OK. I got the lightest shade and you can't tell they are pink unless you are looking for it. I will get them a little darker next time. Ann Doyle

I am only person who has posted that the FL41 (which can only be done in Utah) didn't work for me. I sent them twice and they made me dizzy and I couldn't read at all with them or see well. I did what you did and had a tinting done locally. I took the FL41 pair with me and asked if they could tint my new glasses that color. It took some trial and error but we finally got them the tint that worked for me. They kept coating them more until they were right. Take them back and they can dip them again in the tint.

Most lens manufacturers can tint glasses one or more shades of rose. I don't believe it has been established scientifically that the FL41 tint is significantly superior to other rose tints for reducing blepharospasm or light sensitivity. As I recall, someone was going to conduct a proper research study to compare different tints.

That was being done in Utah last fall (I believe it was). I checked into possibly being one of the research "patients" but learned about it right at the end of the recruiting period and couldn't make arrangements to get to Salt Lake City on such short notice.

I don't recall when the results are supposed to be out, but I'm sure we will hear about them when available.
