In brief: Several possible ans
This comment could be describing reduced corneal sensitivity following certain infections, often viral.
Alternatively, it could be describing the lack of pain sensation from problems in the retina, which lacks pain sensation nerve fibers and can usually generate sensation as light flashes, not pain. You should clear it up with the doctor who made the comment.
