When I Blink I See A Black Spot
Doctor can evaluate: If a new vision symptom pops up, one should see his primary care doctor and/or an ophthalmologist (eye doctor). Vision is so important, so it is good to have a doctor get the whole story and examine the eyes. It may or may not be something to worry about, but one cannot tell without an evaluation. ...Read more
After images: After we close our eyes, especially in brightly lit environments, we will see images of what we were looking at for a short period of time. This is due to the fact that our retinal pigments have been stimulated by the lights and take some time to recover from those lights. You are noticing the residual images from this. ...Read more
Floater: If the black spot moves with blinks, then it's likely in the vitreous. If not new and only one without flashes or decreased vision, may not be anything serious. If it's a fixed black spot, then should be checked out for a potential retinal or brain problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a moving black spot in my right eye. It's small but annoying when i move my eye around. Will it go away or do I need to see a doc? I am 22.
Need to see MD: It sounds like you have a new-onset floater. This is part of a natural occurrence called posterior vitreous detachment, where the gel inside the eye separates off from the retina, sometimes forming visible clumps in the process. Because this process can sometimes cause tears in the peripheral retina which can lead to retinal detachment (a vision-threatening thing), you should be seen asap. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am seeing a tiny black spot from my left eye when focusing in bright light. Should I be worried?
Probably floater : Your description sounds like a vitreous floater. As long as your visual acuity is not altered, I would recommend scheduling a routine eye examination. However, if your vision has been affected or if you have associated flashes, obscuration of vision, distortion, pain, double vision, then seek immediate eye examination appointment. Generally floaters are a normal development with aging. ...Read more

Corneal ulcer: This is most likely (in a contact lens wearer) to be a bacterial ulcer focus on the cornea which appears to be on the iris due to juxtaposition. Remove your contact and seek help from the ophthalmologist to prevent this from spreading or deepening. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bleed: This is a sub-conjunctival hemorrhage. As long as the vision is unchanged and there is no pain, everything should be fine. If it is a little irritated, then you can use an artificial tear up to 4 times a day to lubricate. This is due to a blood vessel leaking blood and is usually without cause. Sometimes straining or blood thinner can cause this. If it continues to happen, follow up with eye md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If you have a doctor relationship they may choose to treat you without needing an appointment. Bleeding can occur with many bladder infections. It is also possible you may have a vaginal infection as well. Get checked and be well! ...Read more
