Unbelievably 12-15% of the population suffer from migraine of a frequency between daily and annually. There are many triggers including food. Cheese, chocolate and food colourings are obvious non culprits. Hormonal headaches are common, stress including visual stress we have all suffered with and modern occupations often involve long periods of computer work which cause headaches.
Many of the symptoms can be reduced or relieved with the sympathetic prescription of glasses. We also see some great improvements by using specifically tinted lenses for migraine. One of our patients went from suffering headaches twice weekly to one every six months after wearing the glasses we prescribed.
If you suffer from regular headaches the Doctor is probably the best place to start to check blood pressure and other common causes, but if all is well then come and see us and find out if we can help.
