Ocular Migraine

One-sided headache is known as migraine. In ocular migraines, the aura is the triggering factor. There is usually temporary loss of vision in one eye due to reduced blood flow in the retina lasting less than one hour. Blind spots in the vision, flashing lines, zig-zag lines, psychedelic lights, etc., are all aura that occurs before an ocular migraine. Painkillers are useful in reducing the migraine.
