Bright colorful circles right in the center of vision

Someone please tell me I'm not the only one that experiences this. they're small circles.. in a honeycomb pattern. They're small and appear usually when I'm tired or fatigued. I used to hardly ever notice it (it's been happening for a long time) but lately it's been happening all day.

It's so hard to explain but they're bright and colorful and look like this almost:

I know that's silly but they're close knit like that. They're small and only directly in the line of my vision.

Any ideas? Should I go see an eye doc?

Re: Bright colorful circles right in the center of vision

Yes, you should preferably see a neuro-ophthalmologist as soon as possible. This type of specialist is usually found in hospitals with an eye department. The condition is not normal but it is not necessarily a serious problem. It indicates some form of disturbance of the photoreceptors that distinguish colours. However, you do need to find out what is causing it before it develops any further.
