Eye issues after aortic surgery

Since my mitral valve replacement in 2020 I have occasionally had what looks like a shimmering gummy worm move from the left side of my vision to the right, and then it disappears. I have a slight headache during the episode, and then the headache goes away. I don’t know if it is the result of the OHS or a coincidence. No issues with uncontrollable eye movements.

Thank you for responding I get the shiny worm looking things on the sides at times. I also have
A very slight headache also. Have read a lot on Ocular migraines and that is one of the symptoms. Doesn’t last long maybe 20 min at the longest.
It’s the strange uncontrollable eye movements that concern me. Maybe it’s from being in the heart/ lung pump so long and my brain can’t
Reprogram. I am going to
My PCP office today.
Hopefully they will do a CT or MRI to rule out TIA’s. I think I could tolerate them and not panic.
