Prisms

I have these weird distubances where I see what I can only descibe as a prism or kalidiscope. Very colorful and squiggly shapes. I was told years ago that this could be visual migranes (migraines)? I can actually tell when I will have an episode because my eyes feel funny, like crossed and I feel off balance. the episodes last from 1 minute to sometimes 5. I have also begun to have pain with them but not a severe headache just a dull ache. I should explain that I also have PV and I take hydrea to control my red cells. I have been tested for everything related to my eyes. To see if i had a blockage or a artery problem. Could this be migranes (migraines) starting or maybe just because my blood is so thick at times?

Hello.

The most probable cause for your symptoms of visual disturbances is the PV itself. The visual disturbance and headache are accompaniments of the conditions.
