Background: It has been postulated that migraine and glaucoma may have common vascular causative factors. Significant sex-based differences in the incidence of many important ocular conditions raise the possibility that estrogens may have direct effects on the eye. We performed a study to determine the effect of the menstrual cycle on standard achromatic automated perimetry (SAP) and short-wavelength automated perimetry (SWAP) (blue-on-yellow perimetry) of women with migraine.
