Ocular Migraines

We typically think of migraines as the painful, throbbing headaches on one side of the head. Often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound that last for hours to days.
An ocular migraine is a rare condition characterized by temporary vision loss. Ocular migraines are caused by reduced blood flow or spasms of blood vessels in the retina or behind the eyes.
An ocular migraine can occur with or without the pain of a migraine headache.
