: : : 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??
I have been having opthomolic migraines since I was 17 yrs. old I am now 43. I have had both kinds that have been described here. For a number of years I had the flashy colored auras. I have also lost all eye sight for just a few minutes. Now I just lose some of my eye sight for a few seconds, and I can sort of see through the black spot. So don't worry I have had these for years. The opthomologist assures me that they are nothing to worry about. And they obviously are harmless.
