I see a halo of sparkling lights
From time to time, almost once a month for the past year, I see a circle or halo of sparkling lights for about five minutes. It starts with a blind spot right at the center of my vision and it starts growing around it as in a circle or spiral of flickering lights (similar to a kaleidoscope). As it grows, the blind spot disappears and becomes a line of sparkling lights that moves and expands usually towards the left.
I see it in both eyes and it comes and goes with no headache or pain.
Thanks,
CC

I would suggest seeing your optomitrist immediatley and asking him to dilate your eyes and check for palpidema.  Pressure on your optic nerve can cause this but you need to find the reason ASAP if you do indeed have palpidema.  Your local eye DR can set in motion treatment very fast...much faster then a family DR
