Flashing lights and twinkling stars
Hi there i have been having flashing/strobing lights in my eyes every now and again but ONLY when i have either just awakened or had my eyes closed for a while (not necessarily sleeping) also when i look at a bright background e.g white clouds i can constantly see twinkling stars all over my field of vision any ideas to what could be causing this?

Since its new you need to start with a complete medical eye evaluation with an ophthalmologist. Since I'm told it takes a long time to see an ophthalmologist get on the waiting list today.

i went to see an ophthamologist and he is unsure as to what the problem is as my eyes are healthy according to the tests he did but he has referred me for a CT scan to check the nerves at the back??

i have had visual migraine before but this is not the same so i know it isn't that.

thanks for your response

That's a good start HOWEVER it may well be eye migraine as they often morph into different shapes/sizes/light patterns.
