Flashing zig zag lines in both eyes after fall on ice

Patient : I fell on the ice today and hit my elbow. My head snapped back but I was able to keep it from hitting the concrete. About an hour after falling, I experienced what seemed to be an ocular migraine (flashing zig zag lines in both eyes) that lasted about 15 minutes. Is this anything to be concerned about?
Symptoms:  Flashing zig zag lines in vision
