: : I am just wondering if anyone has ever heard of optic migraine, I kind of lost my peripheral vision, then saw a sparkle show, then it went away. I am now absolutely petrified. A friend of mine had similar symptoms and her opthamologist told her she had, optic migraines. I have been searching for some info. about it. Please help if you can. I am scared to death and a nervous wreck. Please help. Thanks
: 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??
