I see eye lights that look like little lightening bolts in my field of vision. I was so scared so I saw my Dr and an eye Dr and they both told me it was ocular migraines. Have you checked that out? I hear it comes in different forms of eye flashing/ annoying light problems.
what is the cause of these little electrical like bolts, that zig zag and in my situation move in a perfect elipitcal orbit? Began experiencing these after one particular stressful event, with my wife going off in a negative manner. With in a few hours of that stressful night i began experiencing this, and this morning started google searches on this
visual effect symptoms: trail of bolt-like sparkles
Do your symptoms last ca. 10-30 minutes before going away? Does the 'orbit' slowly move in your range of vision? Does it start sometimes in a small area, and then expand to look like a trail or round band?
Your description is similar to what I've experienced, and I'm looking for further information.
seeing little lightening bolts that were rainbow colored
interesting post on ocular migraines. My little lighten bolts were not circular, which is characteristic of ocular migraines, mine would cut down thru the entire field of view and were rainbow colors, looked like a movie screen being torn quickly and the rebooted.
