We have previously demonstrated that perimetric performance measured with flickering stimuli is not normal in some individuals who experience migraine with aura in the period between their attacks. In this study, flicker perimetric performance is measured in a broad group of migraineurs to determine whether the existence of such visual field deficits is dependent on the presence of visual aura, is correlated with the duration of migraine history, or frequency of attacks. Twenty-eight migraine with aura, 25 migraine without aura, and 24 non-headache control subjects participated. The performance of the migraine groups was not significantly different from each other. The migraine groups showed..
