Seizure triggers

Two weeks ago I was in the beauty shop getting my hair done.  The woman sittitg next to me had an infra-red light shinning on her hair.  While I tried to keep my eyes closed, it's not possible if you're drinking coffee.  And they were busy, so I couldn't sit anywhere else.  The next day, I had a bad seizure.  Could the infra-red light have triggered it?
