I'm 20, nearsighted and have "snow vision".I'm having constant vision flickering at very bottom of the peripheral (on both eyes). What could it be?
I always had perfect vision. Sudden vision loss in one eye. Pressure on eye. Glaucoma or optic neuritis?
Many causes: Get to your specialist eye md right away. Acute glaucoma is painful with steamy vision before the blindness, so unlikely in your case.

Floaters: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
