    Question Shimmering peripheral vision and headaches


    I've been having a shimmering or shaky effect in my peripheral vision. Kind of like heat waves coming off hot pavement. Sometimes it is mild and sometimes quite a violent shaking, but it is present all the time. I have also had very bad headaches that started a couple of months before the vision problem. I am worried because I have never had either of these problems before. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm not sure if this is something that should be checked out by an Ophthamologist or a Neurologist.

    Hard to say if that is connected or not - could just be 2 different things. I have that "shaking" (flickering) in the peripheral vision (like a ceiling fan) I use that as an example because once it was happening I thought the ceiling fan was on and it wasn't. That's all due to floaters and the retina. If I described what YOU get, then I don't think the 2 are related. (it's doing it now as I write this. I am so USED to it that I don't notice it anymore unless I think about it)
