Approximately one-third of those with migraine experience aura, a sensory experience that occurs before or during an attack. Visual symptoms include light sensitivity, blurred vision, sparkles and flickering. It’s important to correctly identify aura because those who have migraine with aura can potentially turn chronic, have a higher risk of stroke, and should have a different treatment plan. Our experts share how to identify and manage aura.
