When i go from a well-lit room to a dark/dim room sometimes i see a small, bright, black speck in my vision. Sometimes twice in a row, but not always?

In brief: This depends

If this is a new phenomenon for you, it could represent vitreoretinal traction (i.
e. An impending posterior vitreous detachement) and you should have a dilated retinal examination by an eye care professional asap. It may also be mooren's light flashes, a benign phenomenon probably induced by the dilating iris tugging on the retina generate when going from light to dark..

In brief: Generally Normal

During these transitions, both your pupils and retinas are "resetting" to the new ambient light intensity or lack thereof.
The lingering effect(s) from the prior environment are generally normal. If light flashes or increases in spot floaters occur, see your ophthalmologist to be sure.
