i have a pain behind my eyes and a few black dots in my vision that have been there for three hours I have eaten well and have had plenty of rest but I just cant seem to shake it should I call my maternity unit I am 28 weeks pregnant with second baby

Yes, I would call. I'm sure it's fine but its better to check. The people at the maternity unit won't mind - it's part of their job to answer queries like yours.

Yes, it is probably nothing but could be a sign of pre-eclampsia.

Yes, give them a call and see what they say. Hope you feel better.

Do ring but sounds very much like a migraine to me..

Definitely call. It may well just be a migraine but it could also be a warning of pre-eclampsia so be prepared for them to ask you to come up and have your BP checked and your wee dipped.
Hope all is ok but better to be safe.

Call and get checked. I had this last week and turned out to be exhaustion and iron deficiency. So nothing too serious! Fingers crossed for you X

Hope everything was ok.

Have you called. Agree with those saying just check in case of PE.

Are you Diabetic? Hope you're ok.
