Seek help: headache and neck stiffness are very common after lumbar puncture but double vision is not. Your mom should contact the treating doctor immediately about this.

Flashes of light: Flashes from a retinal tear or detachment are generally more visible in darker environments. This is an eye emergency especially if associated with floaters. Migraines can also cause fairly distinct eye flashes that last from a minute or two to 30 min and are evident in both well lit and dark environments.

Macular degeneration: Nearly everyone who has wet amd initially had the dry form. There is definitely a progression from the dry type to the wet type. This is why high dose antioxidant vitamins and zinc is recommended for people with high risk dry amd - your eye md will be able to tell with a dilated retinal exam. As we learn more about the genetics of amd it is clear that there may be subtypes with different causes.
