Is It Possible To Get Rid Of Your Blind Spot In Migraine Fast

In a way, the scotoma is useful, because it warns us that the severe headache is coming. ...Read more
Blind spot: No. The physiologic blind spot is an ignored area in your peripheral vision that represents where the optic nerve inserts into the eye. The connection itself has no photoreceptors and therefore casts a small circular "blind spot" in the outer peripheral visual area or field. It is not a treatable condition. ...Read more
No and why: A blind spot is present in each eye which is the site of exit of the optic nerve from the eye into the brain. The visual system compensates for this so you are not aware of it and it can only be detected by testing. If you truly got rid of it you would damage your sight in that eye. ...Read more
Aura: Many people with classical migraines have stereotyped symptoms that precede the headache, referred to as an aura.

Yes: Most people do adapt to floaters that are blocking the vision, often with the brain "filtering out" the floater so that it is only bothersome in certain situations.
