Ocular Migrane
I started getting headache-less Migranes... well the 'normal' zig-zag light flashes, with the black-hole, and watery edges... I have been told that it is called "Ocular Migrane",,, but what causes it, and how can I treat it as I feel b/c there is no jead ache, I need not see the GP..

Ann, my advice would be to see an ophthalmologist first because it sounds an awful lot like retinal detachment or even glaucoma from this side of the screen. Good luck.
