When moving eye from right to left notice a streak of light in right eye in right side of periphery. Only when moving fast.
Most flashes: And floaters (moving spots in your field of vision) are caused by changes in the gel-like fluid that fills the inside of your eye. Flashes may occur when the gel tugs or pulls on your retina. While this may be benign, it is considered a potential sign of retinal detachment. when the retina pulls away from the tissues underneath it. I would go to ER or see your Ophthalmologist ASAP. Good wishes:) ...Read more
Flickers at eye corners n strange lights - more so after moving from light to dark or physical exertion. Checked retina, lattice ok. Tests n diagnosis?
Photopsias: Lattice degeneration shouldn't account for your symptoms by itself. You are at risk for future retinal tears and detachment, though. You already told me that there is no evidence of retinal detachment. If after a thorough exam, your ophthalmologist has found no etiology, then idiopathic vitreous floaters should be diagnosed. The floaters may become less noticeable or resolve over time. ...Read more

Myokymia: Eyelid myokymia is very common (i assume the lid is moving not the entire eye). Often it has no identifiable cause though allergy, dry eye and lack of sleep may contribute. If the eye itself is moving that would definitely require additional evaluation by an ophthalmologist as nystagmus (rythmic movement of the eyes)can be suggestive of underlying neurologic disease. ...Read more

Just came to that my girl, age 4, has weak eye sight and her eyes are moving inwards. What does that mean?
Turning off vision: The human brain utilized the input of both eyes to aid in depth perception/distance etc. As a child grows, their eyes may have different strength, or weakness in an eye muscle may allow one to line up wrong. The fuzzy or double vision confuses the brain. Over time the brain may begin turning off the input of one eye & keep the best. That process is called amblyopia. If caught early it can be fixed. ...Read more

Particle in vitreous:
Almost all people have some floaters. These may be remnants of blood vessels from the time of development of the eye. If you get new floaters it would be imperative to see an ophthalmologist.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
