Bright Light Streaks Randomly in Left Eye

Off and on, for the last week, I have had a bright light streak to appear in my left eye.  Today it has been more continuous.  There is no pain, but very dull sensation over my left eye and temple.  What would be causing this and should I see an eye specialist?

Use the search feature and read about "posterior vitreous detachments" or PVDs. Yes you need to see an Eye MD ophthalmologst to be sure you do not have a retinal tear or detachment. Find one at www.aao.org and see them TOMORROW.
