I had an ocular migraine once, in the evening following an IVIG treatment. (Coincidence or cause?) I spoke to my primary care physician the next day, who referred me for an ASAP appointment with an ophthalmologist who specialized in retinal conditions. Apparently, seeing flashing lights is a common symptom of potentially serious retina problems.
