Do ocular or retinal migraines cause vision problems?

ANSWER

Often, temporary vision loss or distortion in one eye occurs with retinal migraines, which are rare. Retinal migraines are usually harmless. They last a few minutes, then normal vision returns. However, other serious conditions can cause sudden loss of vision in one eye, so see a doctor immediately if you have vision changes.
