Blurred vision from squiggly floating lines

I get these spells where all of a sudden my eye/eyes get  blurred, floating, squiggly lines in them. It affects my ability to function. On some occassions after the vision problem subsides my face and arm goes numb then followed by a headache. It only hapeens once every month or so but is very scary. Do you know what this may be or what's causing it?


This discussion is related to floating things in vision.

Use the search feture, archives and health topics to look up "eye migraines" and "ophthalmic migraine"    that is a likely cause but you need to see an Eye MD ophthalmologist. Find one at www.aao.org and get in to see one soon.
