What can cause purple spots that flash in eyes? numerous times every day
I have seen opthomoligts, retina doctors and now a neuorlogist, I had every test is normal. They can't explain reasoning for seeing this EVERYDAY, purple spotss, that flash and appear in one eye or the other, tyhen fade in a few seconds or minutes, I had test for seizures, everything, I read here it can be entoptic phenomenon? Is this possible, what is CAUSE AND SIGNIFICANCE OF PURPLE SPOTS IN EYES???
There would appear to be no significance. That is, you have been repeatedly evaluated and nothing "wrong" has been detected. The most common cause of transient colored spots or swirls is migraine. You can never "prove" a patient is having a migraine, it is often simply the diagnosis that is left when everything else has been eliminated.
It sounds to me like at this point you should be working on 1) ignoring the spots, 2) changing your lifestyle to decrease stress and reduce other factors that can trigger migraines (lots of web info about this) and 3) getting on with your life.
