Some opthalmological aspects of headache

  • J. MacW Macgregor


The causes of headache are briefly summarized. The ophthalmologist is often consulted about headaches being due to 'the eyes', but although interference with clear vision may occasionally cause headaches, by far the commonest cause of pain in and around rhe eyes is some type of neuralgia affecting rhe first division of the fifth cranial nerve, or one of the variants of migraine. The diagnosis of these conditions is discussed.
