Brief Answer:
Visual migraine

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I understand your concern concern. What you refer is descriptive of a visual migraine.

However, if the age in your medical history is correct, and, furthermore, if you suffer from hoper tension or diabetes, it might also be due to something more serious relating to the retina, which is the layer at the back of the eyeball that is responsible for transmitting images to the nerves and then the brain.

In any case, I strongly recommend you get an eye exam for better evaluation.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions.

Wishing you good health and all the best
