Ocular Migraine : These are called scintillating schotomas- part of the ocular migraine or ophthalmic (also called ocular) migraine. Patients have spasms of the arteries at supply the eye and get these symptoms. Temporary loss of blood flow causes temporary sight loss. If it persists or interferes with daily activities then go to your primary care doctor for an exam and treatment.
