Dr. Jamin Quilla first took an interest in the role that light can play in headaches and migraines while he was in optometry school. He was first exposed to the power of lens treatment options during his training. Dr. Jamin saw the benefit special testing for those with chronic migraines while observing a professor who helped a fellow student that had debilitating migraines, often brought on by indoor lighting. Her testing revealed that a dark blue tint relieved the light sensitivity that brought on the debilitating migraines. Custom tinted contact lenses were created to address her problem. After wearing the contact lens, her migraines nearly vanished.
After finishing his residency in ocular disease and low vision rehabilitation at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Johnson City, TN, Dr. Jamin and his wife, Dr. Carrie, took over Carolina Vision from a retiring doctor near Asheville, NC.
Soon after starting in private practice, Dr. Jamin began to experiment more with tinted lenses. Through working with many patients, he began to discover just how much of a role light can play for so many suffering with chronic headaches and migraines. Dr. Jamin began investing in specialized equipment for his headache and light sensitivity patients. He soon developed a vision to have a clinic dedicated helping these patients.
in order to push the limits by having the best technology available to help his patients in a dedicated clinic space.
In 2019 his practice became the first practice in the country to have a Colorimeter and Neurolens Measurement Device. The colorimeter is used to test and create custom tinted lenses best suited for each individual. (See below for more on these devices).
In 2020, Dr. Jamin started Ease Eyewear and founded Soma Vision Center for Migraines and headaches in order to bring the best technology under one roof in a space designed for people with chronic headaches, migraines, and light sensitivity.
