I recently bought a Lumie Clear Acne Light and used it for the first time for 15 minute sessions over 3 evenings last week. I used the goggles provided and had my eyes shut. I spent most of the 15 minutes with the lamp against my skin but for some of the time I held it a few centimetres away from my face and moved it in circular patterns. Since then (6 days now) I have had a bad headache, flashing lights in front of my eyes, difficulty focussing, dizziness and nausea. I don't get migraines.

Could these symptoms be caused by the bright light?

I'm worried that there is permanent damage to my eyes as these unpleasant effects still haven't gone after nearly a week.

Sorry to hear you're having problems.

The goggles provided with Clear are to block out the blue light; Clear has also been tested for ocular safety and does not represent a hazard to the eyes.

The known side effects with Clear relate to the skin, like possible dryness... nothing about migraines or nausea. We'll send your feedback to our dermatologist for his thoughts and will get back to him as soon as possible, should be in a day or so.

Could you consult an ophthalmologist too? This is possibly an eye problem rather than a skin problem.

Thanks.

We've sent you a PM.

We don't have access to an opthalmologist I'm afraid.

I don't have anything in my inbox. Please could you email me.

As a company that makes bright lights that shine in people's eyes, it might be a good idea for you to form a relationship with an opthalmologist who could help with product development.
