Suggest remedy for scintillating scotoma in my vision

I am a healthy 39 year old male, free of any health conditions. For about the last year now I have been getting scintillating scotoms in my vision every 2 or 3 weeks. Lasts about an hour, C shape..etc. I usually take some aspirin but rarely have any pain associated with it. I usually get them from computer monitors or sometimes bright flashes of light. Is there any good preventive for these?

I have a scotoma, oval area of gray, which affects my distance vision (blocks somewhat) my vision. When I have an eye exam I have to turn my head as the gray area is in front of my vision. I had a scleral buckle and gas bubble for a retinal detachment in 2013. What is a scotoma? Is there any hope for treatment to remove the scotoma?

Good afternoon I was told back in Aug 2013 that I have Factor 5 Leiden thrombophilia. The doctor put me on Xarelto for 6 months now and has taken me off and to start using aspirin again. The doctor states that they do not like to keep on medication no longer then 6 months. But I m still on Hydrochlothiazide 25 mg every other day and my ankles are still swollen. I asked the doctor how will I know if I get the blood clots again and his response was I will know. Should I find a hematology & oncology? This scares me!
