Hey all,

Just a quick question. I have looked into the ratings and cannot find anything for Occular Mirgaines. I was diagnosed with Occular Migraine, I lose vision in the right eye 3-4 times a year but take no meds. I have no pain with the Migraine which the Neuro I saw said is possible to have one without the other. So since there is no pain am I out of luck with this condition? I decided not to take meds as I am on a buttload of meds already and didn't want to make it a 10+ med evolution every night.

Thx for your insight.

Slorcoe,

Welcome! The answer is going to depend on the circumstances of your case. I could see arguing for a rating under Migraines, but it might end up as a 0% rating. However, I suspect that the loss of vision would be the more likely basis for the rating. However, if this is only intermittent and does not significantly impact your duties, I think that you would be found fit.
