Just yesterday, I got a diagnosis for a problem I’ve been having with my vision. I’ve been going through bouts of blurry vision, leading to headaches and tiredness. I finally went to an opthamalogist, and the symptoms were clear: it was a case of ocular migraines.
The good news is that it isn’t dangerous and doesn’t lead to any permanent damage. It’s evidently not a rare condition, though I don’t think there’s much about it outside of an opthamalogist’s office. It took some searching to find a link that described it.
They are going to do some tests to make sure, but my symptoms are exactly like those in the link above, so I don’t expect trouble.
Of course, the bad news is, like migraine headaches, the cause of these are unclear and there is no simple cure. I’m going to have to relax more and maybe spend less time staring at the computer screen and try to figure out what sort of things trigger the attacks. The actual episodes are painless; I sometimes get headaches afterwards, but those are minor and an aspirin does the trick.
But the big relief is that my vision isn’t going. :eek:
Anyone else have this sort of problem?
