Visual clutter
Bravo6ep posted:
For the past 10 years I occasionally experience an episode when outdoors searching the ground (usually cleaning up after my dog) where the image seems to lag, or the details pile up on each other. The image doesn't blur, it remains sharp but it just gets cluttered. I close my eyes for a second and when I open them without moving my focus from a spot on the ground everything is clear. If I move my focus, even a little the sensation returns.

I generally go for months without a recurrence and usually its a single event lasting 15 to 20 minutes. While there is no pain or head ache during an episode there is a sensation in the eyes (?) that is hard to describe though it is similar to the feeling when I clench my fist. Not straining muscles but perhaps impact on blood flow.

I went to an Opthalmologist when it first ocured and was told it was an ocular migrain but the symptoms are not a match.
Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
This is not a typical symptom of any disorder that I know. However, the ten year duration of its occurrence eliminates a lot of bad possibilities.

I agree with your ophthalmologist that it is most likely in the family of migraine. This conclusion is reached despite the atypical visual aberration but on the basis of a 15 minute duration and complete resolution of the symptom between episodes.

If the episodes change or become more frequent, then consultation with a neuro-ophthalmologist may be warranted.
