Increasing visual changes need attention from an ophthalmologist. Severe headaches could benefit from evaluation from neurologist. If you have had prior migraine issues, you will benefit from prophylactic CGRP items. Based upon the data provided, would address both issues ASAP.

If the blurry vision is in both eyes in the same hemifield, this is a visual aura associated with the migraine. If in one eye only, this is a primary ophthalmic issue. Concerned for intraocular lens displacement when vomiting. Possible posterior capsule opacification. Both neurology (headache) and ophthalmology (vision loss) are medically indicated.
