Today is #migrainesolidarityday. I am wearing a pair of shades to show I care to support those who suffer from this disease. Many individuals who have migraines suffer from photophobia-an intense sensitivity to light and wear sunglasses to protect their eyes even indoors. Some migraineurs have visual auras, and I have placed several filters on this photo to mimic what this might look like in their field of vision. #shadesformigraines

As a result of my migraines I have extreme sensitivity to light, called photophobia. I wear shades a lot of the time, even in doors. Photophobia is a symptom of abnormal intolerance to visual perception of light. As a medical symptom, photophobia is not a morbid fear or phobia, but an experience of discomfort or pain to the eyes due to light exposure or by presence of actual physical sensitivity of the eyes. Common causes of photophobia include migraine headaches, TMJ, cataracts, Sjogren's Syndrome, Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI), or severe ophthalmologic diseases such as uveitis or corneal abrasion. Tomorrow is the longest day of the year. #shadesformigraine #worldmigrainesolidarityday #photophobia #migraineawarenessmonth #wiki
