I am a 60 yo female in general good health. Last month I had a physical and an eye exam. For several months I have been seeing colored spots occasionally. First they were yellow, then blue, next red, and today the spots were green. Got any ideas?

Purple colored circle in field of vision - See through
I am amazed by how many threads there are on this and yet it seems as though nobody really knows what it is. Seems discouraging that people go to all of these different specialists and no clear answers.

Just the other night I was driving at night and started noticing a neonish purple color on objects that are in my peripheral vision. The next day I started noticing that it is just in my right eye and if i stare at an object I can see a purple colored circle. (just right eye)Purple colored circle is transparent so I still have full view. (Annoying to see everything with a purple tint) Also when I blink the right eye, I see a bit of a flash. (Round like shape in ceter of flash is very bright and shape of a pupil)

Does anyone have any information on this?
