Migraines can start in the visual cortex

Updated: Feb 27

It is well known that migraines can cause visual symptoms such as hallucinations, visual aura, blurred vision vand light sensitivity. New studies show that abnormalities in the visual cortex could be causing migraines.

“Our study provides evidence there are likely specific anomalies present in the way the visual cortex of migraine sufferers processes information from the outside world,” according to senior author Dr. Ali Mazaheri.

Ocular migraines and visual stimuli should be checked by your optometrist. Incorrect eyeglass prescriptions, unbalanced eye muscles and blue light can contribute to migraines. Seeing your eye doctor can help diagnose causes of headaches and treat them accordingly.
