Migraine headaches can be completely debilitating and in many cases it’s difficult to actually determine what is causing them. People suffering from chronic migraines try to find out what triggers them to help reduce their pain and suffering. For some, caffeine can be a major trigger while for others consuming milk products can cause a headache. For many, flickering lights can immediately turn on a full-blown migraine and the flickering can be so mild that the person doesn’t even notice it. Fortunately, people suffering from flickering light sensitivity may find a solution with LEDs.

Put an End to Flickering Lights

Flickering lights can trigger not only migraines but seizures as well. For many people, flickering lights can make them feel unwell even if a migraine or seizure doesn’t appear. Staying in a room with a light that’s flickering can make you feel dizzy and generally unwell.  You’ve probably experienced this sensation a few times in your life when stuck in a room with a light that refuses to stop flickering.

You can put an end to flickering lights in both the workplace and at home by switching over to LEDs. There are no filaments in LED lights so there is no flickering at all. LEDs use a semiconductor to create illumination instead of filaments. This is new technology that makes a lot of sense in so many different ways.

Homeowners may find a reduction in their migraine headaches by using LED lights and getting rid of all of their fluorescent fixtures. Businesses may see less people leaving work for the day due to the onset of a migraine headache. Every day, thousands of people need to leave their work spaces due to migraines. With LED technology, both homeowners and business owners can light their rooms, conserve energy and proactively fight against these debilitating headaches.

If you or a member of your family suffers from migraines, LEDs may be the solution you are looking for, or maybe at least part of it. Flickering lights aren’t good for anybody and you can eliminate them completely by using LED lamps instead.
