Wouldn't hurt: If you have blind spots in both eyes, wavy lines in both eyes that goes away after 15-20 minutes, most likely you had a migraine variant or ophthalmic migraine. If the spots are in just one eye, you should make sure an ophthalmologist examines your eye to ensure there is no retinal tear or other pathology. If these symptoms become constant or more frequent, definitely see a doctor.

Yes: In addition inflammatory disease of the brain/central nervous system and/or metabolic diseases can cause these signs and symptoms. You may need to see more than just one physician. You should start now.

Not to worry: This is normal! The less you pay attention to this the quicker they will disappear ! Consult Opthamologist if above advice doesn't "work"
