Kaleidoscope Vision

Has anyone else on here ever had it?

Only in one eye, and only for five minutes, but it was vivid and a bit freaky tbh. Foolishly, I went straight to google and, predictably enough, one of the first results implied that I may be about to have a stroke. This also freaked me out as my cousin who's the same age recently had a life-changing one himself. For now I'm going to plop with google's more restrained explanation which suggested it was probably the onset of a migraine. I don't think I've ever had one of those but kind of hoping I do.

I have it, usually when very tired. It indicates the onset of a headache.

I've had these before and believe that they're ocular migraines. Mine start with flashing lights on the periphery of my vision and these close in towards the centre of the eye. Nothing helps and these last 30-40 minutes. I haven't seen a doctor about them as I found some websites which had examples of my symptoms, e.g. the second photo in the site below:

These were never accompanied by a migraine but a dull headache and feeling a bit sick.

Obviously go and see a doctor if you have any worries. I had a major stroke, fully recovered, so I understand your concern.

Yes , once two years ago.

Very odd, suddenly couldn't read , everything was just as you describe and there was a pain in one side of my head.

Doctor actually wanted to see me straight even though it was mid covid. He was happy it was an ocular migraine. I went and slept in a dark room until the following day with an awful headache and then was fine

Haven't had one since..

Used to be called classical migraine with aura. Can happen without headache and can be frightening if you haven’t had them before . Usually start with visual disturbances and a ever expanding shimmering light . Usually upto an hour then gone.

Thanks fellas, that's put my mind at rest a bit. I've now got a bit of a pressure head (?) which may be some form of migraine, also slightly lightheaded now as well, very similar to Polak's.

It was like a third of the right-hand side of a circle band formed by lots of separate neon evolving shapes just in my periphery that slowly increased in size. As FiaB did, I think I'll go to bed.

P.S. Mega stressed atm as moving in two weeks, got my aunts funeral just after the semi and too much work to keep up with. Probably the cause,

Thanks again, everybody.

Had then since I was very very young. In are occurrences they can cause a stroke ( it did with me when I was 17) and I have permanently lost 25% of my vision. So, in essence, you should still get a doctors opinion.

high blood pressure can affect the eyes; the blood vessels are extremely small and they can swell distorting the layers at the back of the eye. The receptors react to distortion by producing impulses to the brain that may be seen as colour flashes. I don't know if there is any correlation between migraine and fluctuating blood pressure but (my wife tells me) the cure for migraine is vomiting followed by a lie down watching old movies, wrapped an a duvet with copious cups of tea and toast.

Having an ocular migraine on the day of the beer festival. Thanks for that. Coming to the end of it now, thankfully.
