Hey,
I was reading some of the members questions that were posted recently and then I saw yours.
Occasionally I have the same problems. I actually saw an eye doctor for one of those symptoms. He told me I was having a verity of migranes all at ones. Usually a person only feels pain on one side of the head when they are having a migrane.They could even see lights flashing in the shape of a straight line or like waves. Some people sometimes have migranes and not feel any pain but still show symptoms of one.
You could be having Ocular Migranes too. (Migranes that linger around your eyes and that could temporally disrupt your vision). I have those acouple times.
But if I were you I would make an appointment to see an Opthemologist to have a routine eye exam to make sure nothing too serious is going on. Anyway,
I hope this helped alittle. Goodluck!!!

You do need to see an Eye MD. It could be vitreous traction, retinal hole, retinal detachment. Migraine flashes last 5-30 minutes.
