I would certainly see an eye doctor. I started seeing bright "flashes" of light in my eye over a period of 3 days, best way i can describe it is "flashes of lighting" but not as intense - gold colored; it turns out these flashes were retinal tears, which caused my retina to detach. It's now 7 months later and i WISH someone would have told me to go see a eye doctor sooner, as i waited until i started seeing a gray curtain interupt my field of view. Be safe - get it checked.
Hey guys! My eye doctor checked everything and said that sometimes the gel in our eyes can pull on the retina. Therefore causing the lights that I have been seeing. He didn't see any tears thank GOD! He said that it should go away, but if it progresses then I need to come back.
I have this light goldish yellowish light that I see at the bottom of my left eye sometimes and it stays for a spit second to 2 seconds, also the white part of my eyes are turning yellow and have had some serious headaches lately, anyone know what this could be
I'm still undergoing treatment floaters and flashes I had 2 tears in the retina but a retina hole went undetected till they used new tech that takes a picture of the retina ,where they found a hole .I'm still having floaters and flashes and fear the worse not a retina detachment but blindness itself due to my severe lattess in both eyes I had 2 lazer surgerys and still see flashes . and have blood in the eye I'm not sure if my young doctor is doing the correct job so I'm gonna seek a second opinion
First the treatment of retinal tears or holes with laser or cryo (freezing) does not treat the floaters just the hole/tear. Hopefully the floaters "settle down". Getting a second opinion is a good idea if you have doubts about your treatment or Eye MD. Most patients with lattice do not end up blind nor have retinal detachments. I have lattice in both eyes. Good luck JCH MD
