Astigmatism and Migraine

Can Astigmatism cause Aura Migraines?  Are they linked with each other?

Thanks for answering my question. I thought they can be linked to each other, because of the way light enters my eyes (because of the Astigmatism).  Sometimes I get aura migraines when I'm outside in the sun or in bright lights.

The doctor told me that my blood is too thick, and it is caused by sugar and fat in my diet. That is why I get aura migraines.

Do you have more information about this? Can this really be the cause of migraines?

And why does sugar and fat make blood thick?

Thanks
