Im 20 and have had this happen every once in a while as far as i can remember
So every once in a while my vision loses brightness a alittle bit. and when this happens, i see short squiggly lines that look like they rapidly change from black and white. This takes up alot of my outer vision and last probably up to 20 seconds at the most.
I have asked my optometrist but they said it wasnt anything to worry about. But i dont think they under stood my description. Also they have told me i have larger than normal optic nerves, but is not glaucoma.
