Can anyone point me into the direction of some information/research regarding the use of tinted contact lenses for patients with photo induced epilepsy. Thanks

Hello Alan,

I belong to several Epilepsy Groups. This is the first I have heard of tinted contacts used for Photosensitive Epilepsy. Although I do know Prescription Strength Polarized Sunglasses & tv/comp screens Are recommended.

Best of Luck in finding Info. If you Do find that Info, please Share w/ us. Hugs

Love Candi
