This morning I had this bizarre visual distortion in both my eyes, it was so scary. I struggled to describe it to my doctor, who I called at whenever it happened, 6:30 or 7 this morning. It was this weird, geometric, zig-zag, prismy effect, very art deco looking. I told him it was like the Chrysler Building, in a semi-circle, blocking out anything in my field of vision behind it.
Nothing I googled sounded like it, but had I googled “zig-zag” I might have come up with what he thinks it is: an ophthalmic migraine.
Everything I’ve read makes me think he’s right. It totally sounds like this. I’m waiting for him to call again when he gets to the office, and he’s going to have me see someone just to make sure. But I feel less panicked now.
I had planned to post this picture that I took when we were walking down the stairs off the subway yesterday. Interesting coincidence because the angles are reminiscent of what I saw this morning.
