Hello, Thanks for your query, There's been little research to determine the best course of medications to treat or prevent ocular migraines. However, your doctor may recommend one or more of the following drugs:

Aspirin
Drugs used to treat epilepsy, such as Depakote (divalproex sodium) or Topamax (topiramate).
Tricyclic antidepressants, such as Elavil (amitriptyline) or Pamelor (nortriptyline).
Beta-blockers
