Aura: Migraine varies from person to person, and your form is likely termed "classical migraine", where the initial symptoms affect your eyes and later the headache develops. This is a result of an electrochemical change in the back of the brain (occipital lobe). Talk to your doctor about both preventative and abortive therapies.

Is it bad that i get temporary altered vision sometimes followed by migraine?

Possibly: Migraines can cause almost anything, even stroke-like symptoms. Typically this is benign; however, as a safegaurd, i'd consider an MRI of the brain at a minimum to ensure that nothing more than just migraines is the case.

Migraine with aura: It sounds as though you have "migraines with aura". Aura refers to specific symptoms that occur before the onset of the headache. These symptoms are temporary and act as a harbinger of the headache to come. The aura not infrequently involves changes in vision such as blind spots, loss of vision, etc. that are temporary.
