What could cause temporary white out of bottom half of vision

I have migraine headaches with and without auras, and more frequently have auras without headaches.  Usually what I see is a circle of yellowish light moving up the outside corner of my vision.  In addition to that type of aura, sometimes lately the bottom half of my vision flashes completely white beneath a jagged line a little below the center of my vision.  Can you tell me if that sounds like a type of migraine aura?

Yes.  That being said, you should have a full exam by an ophthalmologist to make sure everything else is OK and then see a neurologist to get treatment for migraines.  Really severe migraines could have consequences and should be under the care of a neurologist.
