When i'm stressed everything will start to look half and then my vision starts flashing zig zags but soon as i breath and calm down it subsides?

Ocular Migraine?: This could be an ocular migraine which occurs in the visual processing centers of the brain and results in classic zig zag lines or prismatic colors. It usually lasts minutes to hours and can be seen with the eyes open or closed. Most will go away by themselves and not be accompanied by a headache. Risk factors are similar to normal migraines.
