Why do I see bright light with blind spots?

It's serious. While there can be other causes of your symptoms, you should see an ophthalmologist right away because it could be caused by a retinal detachment. If this is not treated promptly, permanent blindness may result.
Depends. If of short duration, occipital migraine is the most likely. If persistent, then it might be a retinal or optic nerve problem. You need an evaluation by your ophthalmologist for this type of symptom.
