On March 13th at 3 pm EST Dagbjört Andrésdóttir will discuss her personal experience with CVI and migraines, how she manages this chronic condition, and the everyday strategies she uses to empower her through the day.

Many adults with CVI and families of children with CVI report migraines as a common occurrence. These migraines can be caused by any type of overload to the brain—for example, visual fatigue, hunger, overexertion, overheating or too cold, and overstimulation. This is a big chronic health issue for some with CVI. Register, submit your questions, and join this important conversation.
