Shock nova from skill Potential is blinding - can't use it

Filling out the greater good tree like most people, I took all the good skills including the 1 point skill Potential (mostly so I could use action skill in FFYL with the shock nova just gravy)

But whenever I move around (which causes the Jack clones to die and respond) or just whenever the Jack clones die from combat and respond - the shock novas are majorly disorienting and near blinding on my screen.

Basically, had to spec out of the skill no matter how much I wanted the FFYL action skill use because the constant shock novas right near me makes game play near impossible with the constant blinding light show.
