Migraines are debilitating, chronic headaches often accompanied by nausea and extreme sensitivity to sound, light or even odor.
An ocular migraine is a type of migraine that causes vision problems, such as blurry vision, tunnel vision, flashing lights, intense sensitivity to light or temporary loss of vision in one eye. Ocular migraines rarely, if ever, are accompanied by pain, but their symptoms can be very disturbing.
Migraines often are accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea or vomiting, and they also tend to be more severe and to last longer – sometimes more than a day. Unlike other types of headaches that can be annoying, migraines can interfere with day-to-day living and take a big toll on quality of life.
Migraines are typically treated with pain killers designed to battle the intense pain associated with these debilitating headaches. Anti-nausea medications can also be used for patients who are prone to vomiting as a result of migraines. And there are a few medications that may help some people prevent a migraine from occurring. Many patients find resting in a quiet, darkened room for a few hours can help migraines subside. Dr. Broukhim will discuss possible treatment options during your visit.
Triggers refers to events that cause migraines to occur in some people. For instance, in some people, bright lights, noisy crowds or specific odors can cause a migraine to occur. Others may develop them in response to stress, around the time they menstruate or following certain illnesses. Understanding trigger events can help patients prepare for migraines or prevent them by avoiding some types of triggers – for instance, always carrying sunglasses if bright lights have been identified as a trigger.
