The authors analysed both eyes of 27 patients with Migraine, referred from the Headache Clinic of the HCRP-USP, which were submitted to a reduced tensional curve, after visual acuity, fundus, and if necessary visual fields examination. Results did not demonstrate any significam tensional level diference between normal and migrainous patients. The aim of this study was to analyse the basal conditions of the ocular pressure of migrainous patients, considering the facts: the frequency of ocular disturbances in these patients, the sparse data regarding this subject found in the literature, and mainly the role could this information have in the elucidation of the physiopathology of Migraine.
