What causes a refracted color in the peripheral vision?

over the last couple of days, I have had 2 or 3 bouts of an arc of moving, refracted colour in my peripheral vision. It seems to be at the same time as when my neck is hurting, which is common, the result of a car accident years ago. It helped that my husband rubbed my neck and it went away.
Should I be concerned?

See , what you are experiencing are coloured halos.
These are quite common in conditions like conjunctivitis , cataract and glaucoma.
You need to see an ophthalmologist as all the above conditions needs to be taken care of .
Hope this was of help
