A first attempt to try to visualise the effect many people experience when having a visual migraine. These are not usually accompanied by pain, but sometimes are, and you may feel nauseous through the visual stimulation. They seem to be very common. Nothing can be done to avoid them it seems, but they don't appear to do any harm either. I have learned to sit back and enjoy the show! They start in the centre of vision, move outward to the perifery, then fade and disappear.

PLEASE NOTE: Video contains black and white flashing images. If you are susceptible to such effects triggering unpleasant consequences such as a migraine or epilepsy, please DO NOT WATCH IT. See below:

One person, out of the thousands who have seen this video, has said that the combination of black and white flashing images actually triggered a migraine in him. He suggested that I didn't use the black and white flashing effect. I completely understand his point of view and apologise to him for triggering a migraine, but this video does show the vision disturbance as I see it, and I do see flashing black and white in my auras.
