    The answer is yes. Migraine headache is one of the most common complaints in medicine today. A migraine aura that affects your vision is common. If you have been having severe headaches or migraines for more than 2 weeks, it affects your vision. Visual symptoms are short lasting. A migraine aura involving your vision will affect both eyes. you had better take aspirin and take a nap. Vitamin C is also helpful. But you should take following the directions that your doctor gives you.

    Yes, migraines will affect your vision. And it may lead to visual migraines, which are similar to the aura people with migraine headaches experience, but there is no headache followed. Visual migraines are more common in people who had migraine headaches when they were younger or who have a family history of migraine headaches. So if you want to get rid of this situation, I suggest you should follow these tips. First, you should take a thorough eye examination to make sure the diagnosis. If the problem occurs more than once, you can look for triggers that might bring them on and then try to avoid them. It could be stress, fatigue, bright lights, hormonal changes, red wine or certain foods. Anyway, just treat it as soon as possible.

    Yes, it could cause that. Visual migraine is more common in people who had migraine headaches when they were younger or who have a family history of migraine headaches. They are caused by spasms of blood vessels in the vision part of your brain, just like migraine headaches. Headache with blurred vision is caused by poor eye sight, low or high blood pressure, severe anemia, low blood sugar.
