strobe-light flashes in eyes upon waking
I have had three incidents in the past month or so of waking up in the middle of the night and having a bizarre, strobe-light effect in my entire field of vision. It's almost as if I am blinking very quickly, except that I'm not. It only lasts for several seconds.

Not sure if these details matter but:

I occasionally wear my contact lenses to sleep (they are acuvue oasis, so wearing them to sleep is apparently ok in moderation), and this has happened only while wearing my contacts. My eyes always feel especially dry when I wake up.

I occasionally have nocturnal panic attacks, which are sometimes caused by hyperventilation in sleep.

This is not related to the contact lenses, but may be related to hyperventilation.
