Well, one of the things the neurologist will evaluate is for the potential for symptoms of migraine headaches. These types of headaches can have these visual changes in the eye, and some people can describe things like zig zags, halos, starburts, etc...occurring before the headache of a migraine.http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/migraine-aura/MM00659Of course, another potential issue could be with the eye itself, since you have only the symptoms in the single eye. Issues within the eye can cause disturbances of vision, and one of the most important, retinal detachment, can have issues that affect the one eye:http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/retinal-detachment/DS00254or can be issues with the pressure inside the eye itself, or the lens, etc...So seeing an eye doctor, ophthalmologist, could be helpful in helping to rule out an eye condition for your symptoms.
I notice it more when 1 eye is covered. I see the halos of light with both eyes
OK.Well, perhaps this is more related to a neurologic issue then, rather than with your eyes. But still I would want to get the eyes examined, just to make sure.
