lights in vision

i guess when you've had something for so long that it almost seems normal so you never really think about it but does anyone else get lights in their vision when they blink or look around? everytime i move my eyes i see lights that then disappear. and everytime i blink i see lights that also disappear. they are random in shape and its all the time

is this a sign of migrane?/

Re: lights in vision

I don't think that's normal.

Time to go see an eye doctor for an exam.

on a day when you're feeling particularly well (with little or no dizziness), i bet you find it stops occurring or occurs to a much lesser extent.

i get them as well but they are almost entirely gone now that i have things under control. i get them occasionally if i have been doing what i shouldn't be (not getting enough sleep, eating trigger foods).

Re: lights in vision

Adam...when you take the meds do symptoms come off gradually? Like peeling away symptoms...?
