Scary eye situation. Had trouble seeing in center of eye then zigzag prism in arc-like line. What was that?
Migraine aura?: It's not clear from your description and it would be helpful to know how long these symptoms lasted, but the "zig-zag prism in arc-like line" comment makes me think of a migraine aura. These often make the vision temporarily hazy, then form a building arc of lights in a zig-zag just off center, which lasts 5-20 minutes, then resolves. Some have a headache after, but many just get the aura. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Migraine: You have described a typical pattern for occipital migraine, a condition affecting the circulation to the occipital lobe - the visual information processing part of the brain. These are benign, annoying but come from nothing and lead to nothing. Most are over in 5 minutes to 1 hour. If you get another, cover one eye, then the other and you will notice the sparkles in the same 1/2 of each eye. ...Read more

Large dark floater in right eye & today developed floater in left eye. Retinas ok but floaters are distorting vision. Would cognitive therapy help?
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
??: Need a little more info about your question. I assume you're saying you have a blind spot centrally and your seeing scintillating light peripherally--typically lasting about 15 minutes, not usually associated with any other symptoms. Sounds like an acephalic migraine or ocular migrains, without headache, sometimes described as auras. Central blindspot is concerning though. See your eyemd. ...Read more
Likely Floaters: It's possible you are seeing floaters in your visual field, particularly if they're seen in daylight while looking at a bland backdrop, like a sky or white wall. The floaters should not block or affect visual acuity.Or if your linear squiggly lines have a building, perhaps curvilinear pattern that shimmers or has a sawtooth or klaidescopic appearance disturbing vision with/without pain: ?Migraine. ...Read more

Zigzag black and white lines in eyes. Partial blindness after light glare or in light. Headache at vase of skull and left facial pain into nose.
Migraine aura?: You could be describing the aura of a migraine attack. It is also possible based upon your description of headaches over just the left side of face that you could be describing symptoms of a cluster though visual aura in those sorts of headaches is rare. You could also be talking about someone who has extreme photophobia for other reasons such as cataract removal which then, can precipitate HA's. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Normal to have very small ring-like lights in vision in complete dark with eye movements.Are these flashes?Got retina examined a week back, no issues?
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 more
