    I used to have blue flashes of light and the doctor said it was pre-migraine. I never got the headaches.

    Yes it scared me at first. I would get them on and off too. Never could find a cause. The doctor was unconcerned but if it keeps bothering you see your eye doctor.

    You may have eye floaters which cause dark spots that appear to float in front of your eye but are actually debris floating at the back of your eye,they are just reflections at the back of the retina,flashing light can be associated with them.You really need to go to see your doctor who would refer you to the correct person to check them out properly for you to find out the reason why you are seeing them or even if other poster correct some form of migraine.Dont leave it your eyes are too precious to take any chances.
