See an optometrist or ophthalmologist to discuss your symptoms and have thorough eye exam w/dilated retinal exam. Need to be sure is not an indicator of retinal detachment.

I would highly urge you to seek consultation with an ophthalmologist, as your symptoms of shadows and flashing lights could be suggestive of a problem with the retina, the back part of the eye - some conditions can be very serious.
