Retinal traction?: This could be a sign that the retina has sustained some damage or has some traction on it from the vitreous gel. A dilated eye exam would be a really good idea as soon as possible to rule out a retinal tear.

Eye trauma: You may just have a bruise of your retina (commotio retinae) or you may have a tear in the retina. You need to see an ophthalmologist for a dilated eye exam ( fundus examination) to make sure the retina is not torn.
