Swirling lights interupt normal vision

There are times when I see swirling lights (like a brightly lit ceiling fan) mostly in my peripheral vision. When my eyes are in this condition it is very difficult to read because I must slow my rate of comprehension while my brain makes out words behind the flashings. Please offer some other names for this condition so I can help Google find more infromation about what causes this condition. I think it resides in the first neurons to make sense out of inputs from the eyes.

The differential diagnosis includes eye/ophthalmic migraine (often not have headache with it) or disease of the heart, brain, or blood vessels.
