Persistent flickering like static in vision (colorful)

Now I really thought that my symptoms of seeing colorful lines in my vision was migraine related but now I noticed something strange it's like a flickering effect like static except its colorful like colors of red blue or green and it does not take up my entire visual field but I can notice it in parts of my vision. This is always there but more noticeable on certain backgrounds

Could this be a kind of visual snow or just another form of migraine?

JamesFan you need to see an Eye MD ophthalmolgoist to make a specific diagnosis something we don't try to do on these forums.  Find an Eye MD near you at www.geteyesmart.org   Having said all of that your description seems more likely a migraine variant which is very common vs visual snow which is very rare.

Alright now the next day I started to vomit and have really bad nausea and the eye symptoms are getting better slightly so I'm going to neuro again in 2 weeks along with my headache chart
