Light sensitivity is also a common trigger and symptom of migraines which can accompany nausea, eye ache and severe headache. Many migraine sufferers find that they need to recover in a dark room during an attack because of their photophobia, or that bright lights can trigger an attack.

Photophobia: Not the fear of someone taking a photo of you but the discomfort or pain when exposed to light. Many people who suffer from migraines and photophobia tend to feel better when they sleep or rest in a dark room.

The BlocOut™ Roller Blind is the perfect solution for migraine sufferers. It is an innovative blackout roller blind with side rails offering unrivalled levels of darkness in your bedroom.

The BlocOut™ Blind also reduces the external noise to help with migraine sufferer’s recovery.

To find out more about Migraines, visit the NHS website for details on causes, treatment, diagnoses and Prevention.
