Has anyone else experienced ocular visual migraine images?

I don't think it has anything to do with VR so much as I had no issues what so ever my first year using the Rift. I had other things going on and did not use VR for some months as I took a long break from things. I went to the doctor and was prescribed glasses for the first time in my life, yay. They scanned my eyes with several machines and whatnot and told me the medicine I am taking appears to be helping as the ocular migraines where less frequent. Anyway I was just curious about eye health so the question may be slightly off topic but still relevant enough.

Current VR technology doesn't allow dynamic changes in focal distance. So using VR for prolonged periods could cause eye strain, just like sitting in front of a monitor.

Oculus is working on a new technology that allows dynamic changes in focal distance based on virtual distance. This should reduce eye strain.

It's still a while away but there are videos from OC6 that talk about this technology on YouTube.
