If you start to suffer from migraines, why does everyone recommend getting an eye test?

Can anything be diagnosed from them?

Thank you

Making sure your vision is correct is the first step when treating migraines/headaches because strained vision can cause them.

Thank you.

Does having normal optic nerve etc mean it won't be anything sinister?

Boble1 that as well. I've always found eye tests reassuring as they could easily spot anything wrong by looking at the optic nerve, in which case you would be promptly referred.
