Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
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.
