For the last year I see flicker in peripheral vision. It happens once or twice/evryday for 5-15 secs ata time. Eye doc said eyes are ok. What is this?
Flashing lights: Some flashing lights are caused by a retinal tear or hole. You should consider seeing a local ophthalmologist if the flashing continues, since not all flashes are benign. Retinal tears can lead to retinal detachments, which can cause blindness. ...Read more

What causes brief loss of peripheral vision without pain? It has happened to me three times in the last month.
Ocular migraine: Ocular migraines can as well as poor blood flow to the occipital lobes of the brain. Both of theses would the vision of both eyes at the same time. If only one eye is affected it could be a retinal migraine or transient central retinal artery occlusion, with cilio-retinal artery sparing of the central vision. See an ophthalmologist. ...Read more
Have IIH. When reading or writing on my phone, I see white & grey kind of flurries in my peripherals. It makes things look like their fading. Why?
Visual obscurations: If you have the diagnosis of IIH then, funny things in your peripheral & even in central vision are part and parcel of the problem. Visual obscurations are when your vision suddenly goes out which is felt to be from the increased intracranial pressure and its effect on the optic nerve.

Lattice reviewed 2 days ago- no vitreoretinal etiology found. Last night I noticed flashes in peripheral vision during (not after) hard cough. Normal?
Depends: Lattice can be a site of weakness with retinal jiggling causing the light flashes. If it only happens when you cough, and not in between and you see no new floaters and the vision remains good, then you can wait it out. If the flashing is continuous or the other factors appear, then have your ophthalmologist (you are not of course seeing an optometrist for this-right?), check it out again. ...Read more
Does a longerlength of time it takes for labs to return results indicate they found something abnormal? (ie. Peripheral smear)? It's been over 2 weeks
Best thing: To do is call your doctor about the results. It may have been a special test that has to be sent out to another state and some lab results may take weeks before they are in, even when they are done locally. Not to worry too much, pick up the phone and make that call to relieve your anxiety. One call, that's all it takes! ...Read more
Labs done 2 weeks ago all have been back for a wk except the peripheral smear. All labs go to the same place. Does a smear normally take take this long?
Yes and No: Most blood tests are done by machines now. The peripheral smear used to be done solely by humans, but is now probably done by a machine together with a human. Because a human is needed, the test can take a few days longer, but 2 weeks sounds too long. One can check with the lab to see if the peripheral smear was accidentally left off the lab order, or was ordered but got forgotten or lost somehow. ...Read more
It seems whenever I look into dark and don't move eyes, my peripheral goes totally black. Why is that?
What's the best medecin for hta that doesn't cause orthostatique hypotension and peripheral neuropathie at the same time good for raynaud syndrome?
Are reactive lymphocytes found in a peripheral smear normal? I have 9.6 % and an absolute count of 1, 000. I don't have any viruses currently.
Migraine or PVD: Depending on the nature of the floaters or glitter, it could be either. A "scintillating scotoma" is used to describe features of retinal migraine. A "flash" of light usually in one eye or "photopsia" can indicate vitreous traction on retina. The later may be associated with retinal tear and detachment. I would get it checked out. The floaters are also more a feature of vitreous detachment. ...Read more
No: Neither should fade in normal aging. Near vision does "fade" in a condition called presbyopia. Loss of peripheral vision is sometimes due to serious conditions such as a retinal detachment or glaucoma or retinitis pigmentosa. Depth perception problems can be due to lose of vision in one or both eyes. ...Read more
I can see my peripheral vision pulsate with my heartbeat when im in brightly lit rooms. What is this?
Lid effect: You are seeing the effect of narrowed lid opening off to the side responding to each arterial pulse. This is not an effect inside the eye./ This is a function of the excellent degree of your perceptions and not due to anything that is abnormal or pathologic. ...Read more
Is it common for people to start losing their peripheral vision and depth perception at the same time?
My peripheral blood smear stated "no abnormal blasts seen." Does that mean there were no blasts seen or only normal blasts were seen?
No blasts.: Blasts in the peripheral blood are not normal by definition. So if no abnormal blasts were seen, that means there were no blasts in the peripheral blood. ...Read more
