The role of colored filters to improve vision in migraine sufferers


  • People who suffer from migraine with aura (MWA) perform better at visual tasks when using a strongly colored visual filter.

Why this matters

  • Photophobia is a common symptom of MWA and migraine without aura (MWoA).

  • People who experience migraine may be more comfortable using a strongly saturated colored filter, however, there is little research on the effect of such filters on visual performance.
