“Ocular Migraine” is a term that is used to refer to several migraine subtypes that are characterized by a variety of visual disturbances, including visual loss, blind spots, zig-zag lines, or seeing stars.
Unlike other forms of migraines, they may occur without any accompanying headache. It’s not uncommon for a single patient to experience a wide range of visual symptoms.
Like other types of migraines, harsh lights and electronic screens can be triggering. Straining your eyes by staring at a screen for long periods, spending time in fluorescent or another harsh lighting, driving long distances, and other taxing visual activities can increase your risk for attacks.
Talk to your eye doctor in Calgary about how to avoid attacks.
