Migraine has different triggers in different people. For some, visual sensitivity can be a trigger. So, for example, they find flicker from artificial lighting or glare from strong visual patterns (eg ironing a stripy shirt) trigger a migraine. In these patients a Visual Stress and colorimetery assessment could lead to a dramatic reduction in migraines.
How do coloured lenses for migraine sufferers work?
Research using fMRI brain scanners showed excessive brain activity in migraine sufferers looking at intense visual patterns. When the same patterns were viewed through prescribed precision tinted lenses, this brain activity was reduced. This explains the reduction in symptoms for patients who suffer from visually sensitive migraine.
