Does anyone experience blurred vision on the side of the attack. I get it everytime without fail that warns me my headache is about to get a whole lot worse. It is like there is a film of something over my eye that i cant see through properly , its hard to explain its not over the entire eye more like a splodge.
That probably makes no sense, but does anyone experience any type of blurred vision i one eye.

Hi Irene,
I dont get it before a CH attack only before a migraine. But during a CH and after I often have blurry vision in my left eye ( same side always as the CH ) and can last up to a week depending on how severe the CH was. The neuro thinks I do slight damage to my eye duing an attack as I press on the eye really hard as thats the only bit of relief I can get and to stay sane. So if a bad one my left eye is all red in the white area and my vision is completely blurry out that side so often cover with an eye patch for up to a week ( again depends on how bad the CH was ) and then when I take the patch off the eye can take another day or two before vision is clear again. In a mild CH my eye will just be watery and abit blurry and if I cover the good eye.
Hopefully this helps or if new to the site read alot of the posts as they all have useful information of what people have tried and what works for them.
Goodluck,
Patch ( hence my nickname as when going thru a bad patch my eye is often covered.. I feel like a pirate )

Yes, vision artifacts are usually associated with a migraine in my own personal experience... thats how I can tell Im getting one... it starts off as a bit of a blind spot an makes reading text on the screen really difficult. One time, the spot got bigger and bigger with each passing minute, then turned into a ring an kept growing until it vanished outside of my viewing area. It was quite fascinating. Then came the migraine.

For me just a very red and runny eye, fortunately no other problems. But I am lucky the pain very varely actually hits my eye, it is more around my eye.

my right eye goes red and watery and feels like someone is trying to dig it out with a stick , but no blurred vision at the start of an attack . During an attack i usually have my right eye /head covered with whatever i can find to keep the light out so i would have no idea what was going except for the blinding , stabbing pain .

Hi Patch again here,
I said before I normally only get blurred vision before a migraine or during/after a cluster headache not before the cluster starts.

Funny thing was just got back from 2 weeks holidays where I had gone approx 4 months without a cluster headache before we left. Driving in the car there the sun was in my eyes and after that I noticed immediately my left eye had like a film over it, by that night the whole eye where should be white was red and my family said it looked like I had been out having a heaving drinking session ( but I dont drink !!! ) .
Also whilst away for 2 weeks had 4 cluster headaches so not sure what was with that. Luckily they were only mild and 2 my eyes were red and watery really bad for the next 24 hours and the other 2 I woke up in pain for appeox 2-3 hours and my eye was abit sore the next day but no blurred vision/wateryness.
So goes to show even with the same person the symptoms can vary slightly.
But 95% of the time I have terrible eyes that even friends/strangers can see the next day after I have had one just from looking at my left eye.
Hope you are all going well and not suffering terribly.
Patch

Irene, I always blur on the left side. My left eye weeps and the white of my eye goes fairly bloodshot. And you're right - this is worst in the big ones ... the ones I call 'crackerjack'.
