Need to see doctor: It’s helpful to see your doctor during an attack, so she can ask the appropriate questions to diagnose you. There are a number of things that can cause similar visual disturbances, such as brain damage, tumours, ischemic optic neuropathy (damage to the optic nerve) and other optic disorders. Even if the symptoms are coming and going, it’s very important to rule out other causes.
