In treatment of ocular conditions, are topical steroids contraindicated in little children?

Depends

Anabolic_steroids
on the ocular condition. If an ophthalmologist prescribes a steroid drop then it would be fine. In general, I do not as a pediatrician, prescribe steroid eye drops without the input of the eye specialist.

What is an ocular migraine?

Ocular migraines!

Ocular_migraine
Ocular migraines are a form of migraines that take place in the occipital cortex (part of the brain that interprets/controls vision). They lack the severe headache as common migraines. The symptoms are usually all or mostly visual and are typically described as flashing of light or ziz-zag lights in the vision. They usually last less than 30 minutes and affect the vision out of both eyes.

Can you tell me about ocular migraine?

Brain disturbance

Ocular_migraine
Ocular migraine is a disturbance of the circulation to the occipital lobe of the brain which is the site of visual information processing. This condition causes attacks lasting from 5 min to up to 2 hours, of greying out of 1/2 of the field of view (or a portion) with shimmering lights and variable patterning. It usually comes without warning and leaves with no trace.

Ocular migraines!

Ocular migraines usually affect the vision out of both eyes and the origin is the occipital cortex. Retinal migraines affect the vision out of one eye and the origin is the retina, and will only happen in one eye at a time.
