    Flashing light shows can bring on epileptic seizures, or cause migraine headaches, or cause eye stress and strain.

    I can no longer watch light shows on TV [or watching same online].  I start to get a headache within a few seconds and my eyes feel weird.

    This is particularly noticeable on music videos that use lots of lights & laser lights.  I have to close my eyes and just listen to the music.

    I just can't bear the light shows.

      warned me about the scene where she is dancing and the strobes start.  It happened so fast and unexpectedly, I didn't have time to duck and cover.  

      So I had a seizure.  Embarrassing.  I hate light shows.  One of the things I like about the BBC news, they always warn if there is flash photography.  Nice.
