2. Types of Visual Migraines

It is important to know whether your visual migraine is ocular or retinal. Although they have similar symptoms, an ocular migraine occurs in both eyes while a retinal migraine occurs in only one eye. While both involve temporary vision problems, a retinal migraine can include diminished vision or complete vision loss in the affected eye.

A retinal migraine is rare and usually appears in a person who has other migraine symptoms. Although it may last for only 10 to 20 minutes and only involve the shimmering spots or flashes common to an ocular migraine, if you have symptoms in one eye rather than two, you should seek prompt medical attention.
