seeing colorful shapes in peripheral vision
2 days ago i started seeing shapes in my left peripheral vision, very colorful, vivid shapes.  When i try to look at them, they shift further out of sight, always staying in my peripheral vision.  I'm 48 and have never experienced this before.  Any reason to by concerned?

You should absolutely be concerned and seek immediate medical care. Start with an Eye MD ophthalmologist. Call early tomorrow and ask for an emergency evaluation. Find one at www.aao.org

Your problem could be due to disease of eye, brain, heart, blood vessels of head/neck.
