When to see a doctor
You should let your doctor know if you get any type of migraine for the first time. It is important then to have a medical exam to rule out other conditions such as blood clot, stroke, pituitary tumor, or detached retina.
If you think you’re having ocular migraines or are concerned about your migraine symptoms, go to your doctor for advice. They will assess whether you would benefit from treatment or will give advice on how to manage your symptoms.
It is important that you don’t drive while you’re suffering from ocular migraine as it can impact your ability to drive.
