Yes. This is the main reason I end up working from home. I get double and just weird vision and won't drive with that going on.

I used to get auras that would give me a blind spot where I couldln't see anything (totally black). Other than that, no, but am very photo sensitive. Need sun glasses. Vision problems are very common during migraines.

Eyes are not a major problem during migraine for me.
I may get some blurred vision only during the prodrome phases then it's mainly hypersensitivity to light but no real disturbances.

I often get blurry vision with my migraines. It normally lasts for the duration of the migraine. Doesn't happen every time, but more often than not. I can see well enough to function, but reading smallish print poses a problem. If I feel up to reading during a migraine, I need to use my hubby's Kindle so I can adjust the print size to very large.

blurry for sure

I start out having sparks and blind spots in my vision during the aura. Once the migraine kicks in my vision is blurry and I have trouble focusing my eyes. This lasts for the duration of the migraine and sometimes persists for quite a while after the migraine ends - actually, I think I'm still migraining but it has receded enough to where I'm not noticing it. It can be very blurry at times but then improves to where things are still blurry but I can do most things.

The vision thing bugs me because sometimes I'm not feeling that bad and would like to read or watch TV but I can't, it is too much of a strain. Also, if the migraine comes on when I'm driving I can't see well enough to drive, so I have to pull over and wait. Once I had to wait nearly all day in a parking lot before I felt it was safe to drive.

Isn't blurry vision really common with migraines?

I don't know if it's common or not but something visual seems to be common.

I know if I wake up with blurry vision, I just don't leave the house. I have a 30 minute drive to work and absolutely hate driving with it going in and out of focus. I feel I'm more of a danger to others and don't want to cause an accident. Which is depressing because mine last 72 hours and it means I am at home a lot. No
