"The Thief of Sight"

Migraine is a strong headache usually experienced on one side of the head only, or ‘inside’ the head. The migraine attack usually lasts between 4 and 72 hours, and can be of different severity for each person. There are many different symptoms accompanying the migraine attack.

Symptoms can be:

  • Nausea
  • Stiff neck muscles
  • Strong dislike of sharp or loud sounds
  • Dislike of bright light

There is no medical treatment that can effectively cure migraine, usually painkillers and nausea medication is prescribed. Acupuncture or exercise can help to prevent, or reduce the frequency and severity of the migraine attacks.”

Migraine and Colorimetry Treatment

At City Eyes the new progressive treatment called Colorimetry is used for symptoms associated with visual stress, headaches or migraines. Some of the migraine forms are connected with visual dysfunctions, therefore it is worth trying the Colorimetry treatment if you suffer from headaches, migraines or related symptoms.

Colorimetry is a new technique that uses coloured overlays or tinted lenses to improve vision when reading, writing, or elsewhere. The simple test can determine whether the different colour of background can improve your reading, and our intuitive colorimeter can choose the exact bespoke colour and brightness of your lenses, should you need them. The tinted lenses have been found to be very effective to reduce symptoms of visual stress and other visual dysfunctions such as dyslexia. Moreover, as our vision has an effect on the functions of the whole body, it has also been effective in easing headaches, muscle tensions or migraines.
