Description:
It’s often said that knowledge is power.  At Axon Optics, we’ve used our knowledge to help those who, to an extent, are powerless.  Over 10% of the population suffers from migraine attacks.  It is the 8th most disabling illness in the world.  As the leading provider of eyeglasses and contact lenses that block the wavelengths of light shown to reduce light sensitivity and migraines, we assist hundreds of individuals who suffer with this incurable illness.
As part of Axon’s pursuit of knowledge, we are excited to announce the launch of our scholarship contest.  The winner will receive $1,000 to assist them in their pursuit to further their education.  We are committed to supporting students in their educational path.
