headaches and lens coatings on glasses
I had to stop wearing sunglasses 2 years ago because they caused migraine headaches. My latest pair of
bifocals now create the same symptoms as sunglasses.  I simply cannot wear them - they truly make me sick.
I've never had this problem before with glasses, only sunglasses.  I've been wearing glasses and contacts for
40 years, bifocals for 10.  So, I am wondering if something different is being used to coat lenses, and are you
aware of allergies to the new materials.
