Lightbulb Bright independent spots of light in vision

Okay, so quick backround facts:
Im a 25 year old female, Slightly overweight, but otherwise in good medical condition. I dont take any regular medications, and this is what I've been experiencing...

For the last 7 or 8 years, in no particular cycles or consistency (they can occur anywhere between 2-3 months to 6-8 months apart), I have these "episodes" where for 15-20 seconds I will see in my close line of vision small dots, reminisent of "Floaters" that have traces of light around and behind them. It almost seems as if they are all (15-20 of them) appearing out of thin air and dissapearring into thin air simultaneously. What confuses me, is that they aren't like floaters in the sense that they move independently of each other, whereas "Floaters" move in connection to where you are puttung your line of vision.

I've had migraines, and I've experienced blackouts before, so Im aware of what flashes of light or other similar effects these can cause, and these are distinctly different. I feel perfectly normal before, during, and after, and I have no loss of vision during these moments.

Im not sure what this could be, if anything, and I'm open to the possiility that it could be just nothing, and I could be simply going out of my mind. lol...

Would love to hear any feedback, if possible!

Re: Bright independent spots of light in vision

It might help to know why you've blacked out.
Ii's just my guess these spots have soemthing to do with blood flow to the retinas.

Re: Bright independent spots of light in vision

I've only blacked out once, many many years ago. and I used to have many migraines as a younger teen, but the light glares, and effects from that were completely different...
Hopefully it is just some sort of eye/vision symptom, I've looked up every possible symptom associated with eye/vision conditions, and none of them came close to what I've been seeing...:/

Re: Bright independent spots of light in vision

It's a difficult one, and probably not serious. Are you normally doing the same thing when you get these episodes (eg., sitting, standing, moving, not eating for awhile)?

Re: Bright independent spots of light in vision

My granddaughter, who is 6, told me last night that she is seeing balls of colored lights. Do you think this is the same? I am concerned and would like to read any information you might receive about this problem.
