Since i last spoke with you and have stop eating for a month food that may triger silent migraine, things asn't change, i wrote down what i was doing prior to the episode of my blurred foggy central vision and notice that when ever i do things at a close up is when the symptoms occures, it is happenning more often, i am schedule to see an ophtamologist and get also a scan of my head, i will know more after these app. my family doc. thinks it might be glaucoma or macular deg. or something not functioning right in the brain. i am anxious to find out because it is not getting better and the symptoms can last for a few hours, no headach. if you think you might know i would appreciate an answer. thank you

Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Doctor DanB : I imagine it must be frustrating to try and rule out the common triggers of migraines only to come up empty in the end.
Doctor DanB : Knowing that doing tasks that require up close vision makes these episodes happen, it's entirely possible that you may not have the correct glasses or refractive correction that is needed to properly see the targets of your near work. That can definitely be a trigger in some people; this is an issue that I would definitely bring up with the ophthalmologist that you are soon to see.

Customer:

As i can understand you still seem to think that it's silent migraine, i do wear reading glasses and i will mention it to the ophtamologist, in other words you think i should be wearing them all the time, the opt. that i had seen mention that i did need them but that i didn't need strong ones this is the prescription that she gave me (DD + 0.50 - X 0.75 X 0.90) (OS + 0.25 - 0.50 X101) add + 2.50 or she said i can just go to a pharmacy to get myself reading glasses. Let me know what you think of it.

Doctor DanB : Yes, you can just use OTC reading glasses, but those won't correct the astigmatism you have. Which, in and of itself, can cause blur that could induce migraines. However, my point was that it's possible that there's something wrong with your glasses and that for some reason, they are not appropriately powered or centered for your reading vision and therefore may be contributing to these episodes.
Customer:
