Our Las Vegas Eye Doctor Staff Can Help You Find Relief from Your Migraines
Migraines can be extremely disabling, whether they occur once in a blue moon, several times a month, or even daily. Even today’s modern medicine isn't always effective at relieving the symptoms, which include severe throbbing head pain, nausea, vomiting, and light sensitivity.
If you have frequent migraine headaches, you may be interested to learn about a new FDA-approved way to prevent migraine headaches and/or reduce their frequency and severity—BOTOX injections Our Las Vegas eye doctor team is proud to offer this service to our patients who are northwest and southwest of town.
The Link between Botox and Migraines
In 2005, our Las Vegas ophthalmologist Dr. Brimhall noticed many of his patients with migraines who received had BOTOX for cosmetic purposes incidentally experienced a dramatic improvement in their headaches and related symptoms; their migraines either improved or completely disappeared for up to 3-4 months. He consulted with the makers of BOTOX and discovered there were other physicians who noticed the same effects. A formal clinical study was begun shortly thereafter.
The study demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of BOTOX in preventing migraine headaches in patients who regularly had them. This eventually led to the recent FDA-approval of the treatment in the preventing of chronic migraine headaches.
In his own ophthalmology practice, Dr. Brimhall has noted an 85-90% success rate. The outcome is considered to be successful if headaches are reduced to 2 or less per month. If the migraine headaches do occur, his patients have noticed they are much less painful. Many of Dr. Brimhall's patients are people who have been unresponsive to other medication and preventative migraine treatments.
