In brief: It depends

I'll assume you have migraine.
You should consult with your doctor. About 30% of migraineurs have a visual aura which usually occurs before the headache lasting 5 to 60 minutes. Migraine medication will not relieve the aura. Many migraineurs have blurred vision during the headache which is not an aura which may be relieved along with the headache pain by migraine acute medication.
