Precision-Tinted Glasses May Help Prevent Migraines In Certain People

HealthDay Share to FacebookShare to Twitter (5/26, Gardner) reported, “Precision-tinted glasses seem to help prevent migraines in people whose pain is triggered by certain visual patterns,” according to a study published May 26 in the journal Cephalalgia. To reach that conclusion, researchers “assessed 11 people with migraines and 11 without the headaches using a functional MRI machine” while participants looked at high-contrast striped patterns through each of three separate pairs of eyeglasses. Interestingly, the study authors “noted a normalization of brain activity in migraineurs wearing the tinted glasses while they were looking at the different patterns.”
