Out of the Blue

I went to the eye doctor yesterday, as the lenses in my glasses are so scratched they are becoming a problem. I also had a worrisome medical question about my vision that I thought I'd put to him as a precursor to asking my M.D. about it, and he was able to provide an answer. I've had a couple of incidents where I suffered brief periods of impaired vision, sort of like you'd get from looking at a bright light and then looking away. This was worrisome, to say the least, but his diagnosis was about as benign as I could have hoped, as he explained I've been suffering what are known as Ocular Migraines. These are apparently actual migraines, but the good news, and the reason I consider this somewhat benign, is because these are not accompanied by any pain, and they have been brief in duration as well as infrequent, so this is not really a problem that needs much solving. This is in contrast to the kind of scenarios that ran through my mind when encountering this, as I suffered some Woody Allen-style concerns about things like blindness and brain tumors, so this is obviously a relief.

Holy crap Blue, I had the exact same thing happen to me a couple weeks ago. Good to know I'm not going blind either.
