I had my first "ocular" migraine at the age of 54. Was sitting reading when zig-zag lines started to appear at the bottom corner of my right eye. They then progressed over a 10-15 minute period of time through both eyes and disappeared. I was left with a very mild headache. In the ensuing 15 years, I have had these migraines sporadically with no rhyme or reason or trigger that I can identify. However, over the past year, they have been recurring about every 2 months, but when I get one I know I will get another the next day! Then I seem to be good to go for another couple of months. The pattern never varies. Very weird. Although one becomes used to them, it is still a scary experience. I do have a genetic history of migraines and am very grateful not to suffer the debilitating ones that many others have to deal with!
