See ophthalmologist : this could be beginnings of a detached retina...or simply nothing serious. Need eye doc to fully exam your eyes to determine exact dx. I personally had similar problem this past year. Fortunately, it was not a retinal tare. However, a friend of mine had the real deal and needed laser repair of his retina...he's doing fine.
