Eight days ago I started having white flashes and floaters appear in my right eye which my Dr. said are from a (painless) migraine of the eye. My vision is blurry like I'm looking through murky water and the floaters are long squiggly lines. I understand that floaters take a long time to settle down. I don't mind the floaters as much as the blurred vision. Has anyone had this type of migraine and do you know what triggered it? My Dr. said I probably won't have this problem in my left eye but how does he know that? I would be legally blind if it happens to my other eye.
