Many people with migraine or chronic headaches are aware of an association with light sensitivity, whether as a trigger, or simply a symptom associated with the problem.
Many sufferers can be quite specific about their particular sensitivity, such as sunlight or from certain artificial lighting or car headlights, when working at a computer, or watching TV.
Following research by Dr Andy Dowson (Kings Headache Service, London) and Alain Maine (European Institute of Health and Medical Sciences), which confirmed that migraineurs were particularly sensitive to light at the red and blue ends of the spectrum, MediView developed a filter to address this particular need.
