Ocular migraine headaches are usually caused by a temporary spasm of the blood vessels in the back of the brain.  The condition can create episodic neurovisual disturbances called a visual aura.

Symptoms of Visual Aura

  • Blank spots in your vision
  • Flickering colored lights
  • Zig-zag lines in your vision
  • Blurred area of vision – "like looking through a heat wave"

Treatment Options

  • Usually benign and require no treatment
  • Medical consultation if post-aura symptoms do not resolve properly
