    Woman, 21 years old. She is tired when she does close work tasks . With eye pain and blurred vision in near and distance vision. She works at a workshop of optics mounting glasses, she gets tired when she needs to mount rimless glasses and make welds with very small objects. She does not use a lot of light and does a very close distance work. She complains of photophobia. She has been diagnosed with migraines, she does not have them frequently and they are not very painful but she sees black spots that prevent her from seeing (the last episode occurred 2-3 years ago) and half of her visual field disappears, but she does not know from which eye. When she was little, one of her eyes was covered but she does not know which one. Her sister deviated one eye.
