    Migrainous Visual Accompaniments Are Not Rare in Late Life: The Framingham Study. 

    Stroke 29:1539-1543, 1998.

         


    The authors evaluated the sudden visual symptoms of more than 2000 participants in the Framingham study, and explored whether these visual symptoms are related to a greater risk of stroke.

        

    Transient visual symptoms beginning late in life are not uncommon, occurring in 1.33% of women and 1.08% of men. They often occur in the absence of headache or a history of headache; they can last up to an hour.

       

    Migranous visual symptoms do not seem to be associated with an increased risk of stroke, and thus invasive diagnostic procedures or therapies to rule out stroke are usually not necessary.
