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.

It means I've read the postings to that point and don't need to comment further. It's how I keep track of what postings I've looked at.

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.

your condition is called a posterior vitreous detachment PVD and you can read more using the archives or search feature.

Dr. John,

You think that I have PVD? My doctor didn't say anything about that. He said he didn't see any tears or detachment. I will call him today and ask to see if that is what he thinks too. Thanks!
