Flashing Light In My Eye
Possible problem: The two most common causes of new light flashes are migraines, and retinal disturbances. The former are short term, but if the flashes are persistent, especially if accompanied by many floaters or changes in the vision, then you need to see your ophthalmologist right away to rule out retinal detachment versus vitreous detachment. ...Read more
Dizziness and increase in eye floaters in bright light. Retina normal eyes close to 20/20 optometrist said. Slight ring in ears and popping sometimes?
Flashes of light: Like an egg has the "white", the eye has the vitreous gel. They are very similar. With age the vitreous undergoes liquefaction in pockets. When 2 or more pockets coalesce the vitreous collapses and its attachments to the peripheral retina "tugs" at it causing the flashes. In medicalese we call it photopsia. Should be checked as a retinal tear (rip) may occur with a retinal detachment. ...Read more

In regards to retinal detachment, symptoms are red eye, blurry vision, black spots and lights, pain at times, noticeable dimness all in one eye only
Guarded Prognosis: Pain and red eye usually aren't associated with retinal detachment unless it is chronic or unless the eye has inflammation and the detachment is caused by a fluid build-up instead of a hole. Given your history there are other things that can dim vision, such as a blocked vessel. You should be carefully evaluated by a retina specialist to optimize your chances of recovery. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Constant flickers in my peripheral vision (mostly left eye) in dark since a couple of weeks.Checked with my retina specialist-no tear.Will it subside?
Common, but check: Flashes of light are a common symptom in an ophthlmology office. Most often, it is not a sign of a serious problem. Rarely, especially if the flashes are new and accompanied by a sudden onset of dark spots called "floaters" in your vision, it can be a sign of a tear in the retina, a possible first stage of a retinal detachment, which is treatable but can lead to loss of vision. Have it checked. ...Read more
