Pulsating Vision Through Floaters In Bright Lights
Is this optical migraine? Flashing zig-zag @periphery of vision. Printed words distorted/stretched at periphery, like they're moving & fading in/out.

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.

Vitreous detachment: 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
See an eye doc ASAP: Any new onset floaters with decreased vision requires a dilated examination with an eye doctor immediately.
