Blurre vision

I am struggling to type this without looking at the screen.


with clusters i get no probs with vision, with migraine I get 30-40 mins of blurred zizaggy vision prior to the head pain.

my problem since yesterday had blurred vision most of the day, got extreem poor tolernce to glare with sunglasses on. can only look at the floor distance vision is blurry and irritating cannot bear it. what was odd could see the lines between paving stones ok but litter and stains on the paving stones blurred.


within mins of getting up this morning its back again, cannot bear to look at screen, glare or disrtance. got a sort of mild migraine with it too.

anyone had similar not sure if to goto to dr or ride it out if its just a migaine related thing.its very unsetteling

Hi David,

I get some weird and wonderful things with my migraines too! I think probably it is a form of Aura, but I am not a Doc so make sure you talk to your Neuro about it.

take care

My husband has CCH, no migraine. He does get visual disturbances when not having an actual attack. Not exactly blurred, he says seeing in quadruple. He gets a lot of light sensitivity. 

Agree with Liz about getting medical advice. Bizarre visual disturbance seems fairly common in the world of CH and migraine, but checking things out is good.

came on again today with the severe pain in my left eye I have ever had. often get eye pain with clusters, but no head pain this time could not focus on print or look at anything remotly bright. popped into my opticians to check my eyes [had cupping early signs of glacoma for a few years now] eyes were ok including the pressure conclusion headache/migraine related.

this evening it has settled down.

feel like a recluse curtains closed on bright sunny day.
