What is ocular migraine?

Dr Louisa Draper

"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. "

Dr Louisa Draper

An ocular migraine is a migraine attack that causes temporary blindness (loss of vision) or distorted vision in one eye. Ocular migraines are also known as retinal migraines, eye migraines, or ophthalmic migraines.

The symptoms of an ocular migraine usually last less than an hour. Vision disturbances are sometimes followed by a headache, but you can also get the headache during the attack.
