Has anyone else experienced temporary vision loss during an episode?

Shortly after having my child, I noticed that my migraines have gone from the top of my head to my eyes, now it seems more centered behind my eyes especially my right eye. I also noticed that during severe migraine from time to time I lose temp vision in my right eye: either partial or full vision. It doesn't happen often but is it something I should worry about?

  1. Hi Eve92, thank you for reaching out! This is certainly something you should discuss with your doctor if you haven't already so s/he can make a full evaluation! Only your doctor can rule out a more serious underlying issue. That being said, partial or full temporary blindness in one or both eyes can be a manifestation of migraine aura. I thought these articles might be of interest to you:
