Viewer Discretion for Epileptics

I've started becoming aware of the amount of content available in movies, television, and online that has a lot of bright, flashing lights. I've seen it in music videos, commercials, films, and TV episodes, and it doesn't seem to be easily avoided. It usually happens when you're not expecting it. Having a son with epilepsy, this becomes a rather scary thought. What if I can't turn it off, change the channel, scroll down, or cover his eyes fast enough? His seizures can be triggered by strobe, and this makes watching things rather difficult when, out of nowhere, sudden bright, flashing lights appear onscreen. I don't want to prohibit these videos from being made, as that would be censorship. What I do want, is a small, 10-15 second discretionary warning at the beginning of such things to warn those with epilepsy or those with family members who have epilepsy that this may occur during viewing. Please help to get some kind of law or regulation passed that would require this. Thank you for your support, and God bless.
