seeing neon colored geometrical shapes and patterns running through my ey
I am seeing neon colored geometrical shapes and patterns running through my eyes. Sometimes it's just black & not neon.Does anyone know what might cause this? I don't do drugs or drink.I do have occasional migraines.
There are multiple possibilities for your visual issue. If the shapes and patterns occur in episodes and last for a few minutes, they could be migraine related. This could be a retinal migraine or if followed by a headache, the visual aura preceding a migraine headache.
Of course, no diagnosis can be made without an examination and gathering more history specific to your situation. So, an ophthalmologist visit is a good idea.
