Seeing red thunderstorm-like lines when looking at black stripes
Hey,
I am worried that something may be wrong with my eyes. When i look at black stripes i see red thunderstorm-like lines that occur perpendicularly to the black stripes. This occurs on any form of black stripes, and this occurs regardless the distance(except less than 20cm). The red lines are not static but they are dynamic. This has been occuring for some time now but i was not quite sure if it was something very serious until lately when i began worrying about it.

Any help on what this could be, is appreciated( I am 19 years old and i have been recently diagnosed with 0.5 degree of astigmatism, not sure if degree is the right word, but the red lines thing has been occurring long before)

That is an extraordinarily rare symptom and brings nothing specific to mind. I suggest you see an Eye MD ophthalmologist for an eye exam.
