Default Black/red spots in oncoming vehicle's headlights - Is it my Vision?

Today evening during driving i saw black(i feel its red) spots in center of each/every vehicle oncoming headlights.Initially i thought center are painted black but as vehicles approached spots disappear. I'm using computers lot .Any problems with my eyes or something weird.

Any one else also experienced these special effects.

NB: I don't drink at all.

How long you have awake for? and how long have you been driving?

Even I user computer literally for 12 hours a day and sometime the opposite light hurts the eye. But, I have not seen spot.

But I have misjudged the distance of the oncoming vehicle when I have been driving for long hours and I am tired. Its only couple of times, because I have never stretched myself to driving limits.

Believe in safe driving with adequate rest.

Regards

These are called floaters or spots and are usually harmless, do you also get migraine pain by any chance ??

Yes i get migraine pain also but not since a month or more..Will these floaters/spots will go by time or stay for some period.. Can tension also be the cause..

N.B- Just to add Mr. DADU is one of the person whom anyone can safely rely/believe upon for right information just like discovery channel..

Normal floaters are not a problem and usually don't show up as spots. So either floaters are hindering your vision or could also be a case of minute retinal hole. I would strongly suggest that you visit a retinal specialist, especially if you get occasional flashes. (Many eye doctors don't specifically check for minute holes in the retina unless you tell them you see flashes but a retinal specialist would check for them.)

There is a eye disease called CSR Which gives same symptom. I Have this. This CSR come due to less sleep, tension and anxiety etc. There is no particular treatment for this and this will automatically goes and even some time it comes back too. Go to doctor and re confirm this.
