Seeing bright purple outline around black or dark objects.

When in lighting I see a purple outline around black objects.. I have had my eyes checked twice by 2 eye doctors and one being an ophthalmologist and neither have answers. Worried that this is something neurological  :(

Unless you have other neurological symptoms a central nervous system cause it unlikely. It is a common complaint and often requires special eye testing by an ophthalmologist to diagnose. Specifically your exam with EYE MD OPHTHALMOLOGIST should include macular and nerve fiber layer OCT to rule out macular disease and cornea topography to rule out cornea disease especially irregular astigmatism/K-conus.

So this is something that is a common complaint? I haven’t been able to find any info on this
Yes not necessarily purple but seeing outlines in different colors is mentioned here on this forum many times. Some times one color, sometimes another, sometimes kaleidoscope
Oh okay I understand. Purple is the color I always see for some reason. I see purple from lights a lot as well.. but this doesn’t seem like a neurological issue? I have 20/20 vision but just lights seems to give off a weird after glow
Said it once which is enough
Oh wow.. thanks.
