    Every now and then I get what appears to be a fractal pattern appear in my eyesight,have been told it's a form of migraine.
    Its bloody annoying,but quite pretty,no pain with it,but I can't figure what triggers it?
    Anyone else have the same problem?
    When its at its worse I can only see stuff in my peripheral vision everything straight in front becomes obscured by the pattern.

    I used to get that a lot when I was in school. Figured it may have been the stupidly bright neon striplights they had everywhere. When it came on really bad, I had to hold onto my pals bag or hand to lead me to where I was going.

    Do get it still sometimes, but I try to live in the dark these days.
    Plus I don't smoke as much weed.

    I used to be a flier, now I ramble.
    Hey you kids, never suck all the juice out of a tractor.

    Yeah I get migraines and sometimes with strange visual effects.

    If it's new for you then go see a doctor.

    it's called a scintillating scotoma. I got those a few times when I was pregnant and it freaked me out. My eye dr. assured me all was fine. It's definitely a weird visual and takes about 1/2 hour to go away. It's caused by a spasm in a blood vessel in your eye.

    Its also caused by high colesterol - little pieces of which are passing through the blood vessels of your eye --- maybe worth getting your levels checked.
