Does anyone else get these?

The 19th Century Doctor Who Mapped His Hallucinations

https://www.nationalgeographic.com/scien...cinations/

Quote:HUBERT AIRY FIRST became aware of his affliction in the fall of 1854, when he noticed a small blind spot interfering with his ability to read. “At first it looked just like the spot which you see after having looked at the sun or some bright object,” he later wrote. But the blind spot was growing, its edges taking on a zigzag shape that reminded Airy of the bastions of a fortified medieval town. Only, they were gorgeously colored. And they were moving.

“All the interior of the fortification, so to speak, was boiling and rolling about in a most wonderful manner as if it was some thick liquid all alive,” Airy wrote. What happened next was less wonderful: a splitting headache, what we now call a migraine.

...

I just get the visuals that last about 20 min. or so but have never got a headache afterwards.

It's weird.

I have a friend that get's them. No headache either and they last 10-20 minutes. Optical migraines is what her Opthamologist calls them.

I get them from time to time. When I asked my Dr. about it he said he gets them too.

I used to get them more when I spent 10 hours a day on the computer. I recently had an episode about two weeks ago, but before that it had been about a 6-9 months.

I've gotten them since I was a child. I originally thought it was my eyes being dry. My eye doctor thought I was crazy.

I started getting them after I was diagnosed with lupus.
I've found diet controls it.
No processed carbs.

Mine last about 15 min, and sometimes I get the actual migraine, and sometimes I dont.

I've had them where the prisms completely obliterate part of my field of vision.
Its very f*cking annoying.

Yup, I get them. Those pictures are pretty accurate of what they're like.

She said they move across the eyes. That would probably scare me to death. She just started getting them a few years ago. There's nothing she can do about them either.

No kidding, except that they shimmer and expand. Someone with good computer animation skills could do a video which would be cool.

They're annoying and you can't do much while they last, but they're not scary. They're kind of pretty really.

Yes, they get bigger and bigger until they sort of drift off your visual field.

Yeah, you just have to relax and let it pass.

That's what she said! Only once has she had to pull over on the side of the road while driving, then it moved on across her vision and she was fine. She's actually pretty cool about it.
