You can mask the symptoms, but there is no cure for photophobia. Treating the underlying cause is usually the best course of action, determined by your medical team. The Photophobic Society of America
is working toward a brighter future for photophobics. By providing access to resources and information, people suffering with this disability can improve their lives.
One technology that does show great results for light sensitivity is called “Extreme Glare” technology “XG”. It is a vast improvement over typical, fashion/style-focused sunglasses. These sunglasses (regular or prescription) block glare and sunlight like no other product on the market. Research XG technology here. This foundation plans to work with various organizations with the hope that proper sun protection is standard care for those with light sensitivity. Government agencies, insurance companies, and/or disability programs can assist with this, and we intend to work closely with any and all avenues available.
***Both entities operate autonomously, and there is no giving, sharing, receiving, or taking of funds between the two independent, and different entities whatsoever. “Extreme Glare” Sunglasses is a commercial enterprise and solely supplies the technology, and products needed to help photophobic people venture outdoors, and to function as normally as possible.
