Seeing flashes of Color
I noticed previous postings for flashes of color.  My mother, who recently suffered at TIA but fully recovered, has just mentioned that she sometimes sees brief flashes of color (red, yellow).  There is no loss of vision, and no pain associated with these incidents.  Years ago she did experience migraine headaches and has had migraine syndrome before ( a few years ago).  I see many references to retinal detachment and am concerned.  She will be seeing a neurologist in the next ten days but wonder if this could be an emergent situation.

Many thanks.

Retinal detachment that cause light flashes are typically not colored but very short duration and very bright in intensity. I would recommend that she see an Eye MD ophthalmologist. Find one at www.aao.org
