Customer Question
Since about 10 pm...

Since about 10 pm last night I have been having flashes of light on the right side of my right eye. It is now after 2 pm the next day and they have not stopped. I do have a migraines all the time but these are very different from the auras I usually get.

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

In October it will be 2 years. My prescription still seems fine at distance. I am 58 years old. I seem to have o take off glasses to read.

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

I have cluster headache. Hemiplegic Migraine.

Well it could possibly be related to your migraine but the risk of posterior vitreous detachment and retinal tear has to be ruled out. Yo need an urgent visit to ER for a look into your eyes for any possible changes as i mentioned.
