Customer Question
I've had very bad...

I've had very bad migraines for about 5 years now, maybe once a month. And every time they happen it's like lights in the perifial(so?) of my vision. They don't flash or anything it's just there and kind of floating in left and right corners of my vision. Is it just to do with migraines? Or is something wrong with my eyes as well?

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

Around 7 months ago I believe. I wear glasses and contacts.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Sometimes the migraines would make me pass out, and sometimes vomit. It might just be the migraines making my eyes do that but I'm not sure. When I have the migraines my eyes are very sensitive to light as well.
