About 3 or 4 times in the past couple years,
when I woke up, I would look at an object
and the color would be wrong: Example,
a white coat would look purple, or a red
bag would look green. I've noticed that only one or
two colors would be different while all the others
would be correct (example: brown, blue and white
objects would look their normal color, but a red
object would look bright green)! This clears up
within a few minutes of being awake, but this
is very bizarre and I hope it is not a sign of any
serious nerological condition. This has never
happened before until a year or two ago :|

(I'm 39 FYI)

Have you been to an opthalmologist? There are probably several possibilities many of which are treatable if you get to them in time.

YES! Get to an Eye Dr ASAP! Go to one that knows more than Checking for Glasses.

Thanks, but do you think it could be something an eye doctor can diagnose? This only happens right after waking up, and I am not experiencing blurred vision or blind spots, and only a certain color is affected (that is the bizarre part) but yes, I think I may have this looked into.

Make sure to see an opthalmologist.

OP that is a common eye distraction. Your eyes have different color pigment which give you color vision. When light hits the retina, the pigment absorbs the light which produces the sensation of color, but the pigment is used up. (Goethe was among the first to discover this phenomenon)

If you wake to sunlight or bright light to your eyes when they are shut, your eyes will see red light through your eyelids. The green and blue pigments are not used up.

When you open your eyes, you will see a greenish-blue hue to everything for a time, until your retinal cells recycle the red pigment - that takes a few seconds.

A visit to an ophthalmologist is advisable, As others have mentioned. They are trained in eye symptoms, diseases of the eye and other eye related problems. You should go just for self assurances so you won't be worrying about it.

Did you ever get the "Weird tint/colors when waking up" checked out? I just experienced the same thing and was googling it when it popped up your post.
I'm a little concerned. Thank you.
