  • 90 cases of chronic migraine being treated with botulinum
  • not clear whether readings are pre or post headache photophobia readings but likely phtophobia with migraine

Results: photophobia dropped from 7.91 to 5.27/10 and dry eye from 5.4 to 4.68/10

they felt results would warrant checking out results in cases without migraine.

Comment – photophobia results are impressive but dry eye not so much,
