I can't view your animation so I don't know where the spot is located. Based on your symptoms I speculate that either 1) you have discovered your blind spot and are intermittently seeing it, causing the blinking effect, or 2) you have a small patch of retina that is a little bit irritable for an unknown reason, and is firing off somewhat randomly but more frequently lately, or 3) you are having a very unusual form of ocular migraine. At this point you have been told that your eyes are healthy. I am guessing that the "spot" did not show up on the visual field test. So it is very important NOT to pay attention to your blinking spot and not to play games with it like trying to make it appear or disappear by changing your focus or the lighting.
I have experienced the same thing as well; a spot. I went to the surgeon but his fellow was there; he told me it was a floater but i can definitely say it is not a floater. I have had CSR in the other eye and they looked similar to this. I have another check scheduled tomorrow and will let you know. I suspected a tear but it was ruled out;
Most opthamologists dont take time to look carefully. I have found that i am able to guide them to the exact spot where this is occuring and then they are able to say - ah...
Dont rely on them checking; my surgeon has always told me that i am the first patient he has had who can guide him to exactly where it is.
Well i did go to the hospital. They checked again and saw changes in the retina after putting on a contact which may be a small csr or a puck; no break was seen. I am scheduled for 7th may check with the retina surgeon.
Before the spot was smaller but it has slowly progressed to a bit larger or so it seems.
There used to be a black spot there which i would seen occassionally with the gel pulling; same spot now i see this permanent distortion. When this change occurred, i did see a lot of new floaters in that area. Hence the suggestion some change has occurred.
