: : Yes, I have been experiencing such optic migraines for over two years. My opthamologist has assured me that everything is o.k. with my eyes, but I've still been quite concerned.

: : On three separate occasions I lost complete vision in my left eye for about 3-4 minutes. After the first time my doctor referred me to a neurologist who ran tests and concluded that nothing was wrong and it would probably never happen again. So, when it did, I called my doctor and this time was referred to an opthamologist. He says I am experiencing optic migraines. I am still not convinced. Does this sound like anything you or your friend has experienced??

: I WAS TOLD THAT I HAVE OPTIC MIGRAINE, WEIRD THINGS HAPPEN BUT NOT TOO OFTEN.I AM HAVING A ULTRASOUND OF MY CAROTED ARTERY AND SEING A NEUROLOGIST NEXT WEEK. WILL LET YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS JIM

I had a optic migraine in 1958 (a calidescope effect in my left eye which lasted less than an hour) while on holidays in a remote area. It scared the hell out of me. By the time I got to where I could see a doc a week had passed. Nothing more happened and I did not see a doctor.
Last week (Nov 2000)I had a another one. I am now going to have my caroted artery checked. Forty years between occurances is too Frequent, HA HA. Wally
