"Strobe" vision

Hi, this is not really a problem, it is not painful or something, but I am interesting what it has to do with and if anyone experienced the same thing. Basically, it is like I see (not feel) a subtle oscillating... like traditional televisions, you know, strobing 25 images per second. I see it usually at evening, in dark. And it is literally blinking, just imagine the strobing screen, it is the very same feeling in my whole vision field. It is also fast, like 15-30 times a second. Just like image is refreshing each 0.05 second or that. Do anyone know what it is or have anyone experienced the same phenomenon?

Thanks

I experienced this "Strobe" vision just this morning, and happen to be looking for answers to this occurrence now but i can't seem to find any thing that comes close as the description you gave.
I let a friend stay the night. Next morning i woke to the sound of my friend in a hurry to leave, i suppose from over sleeping and needing to get to work.
When i sat up and looked at him it appeared as though he was moving to fast for my eyes to keep up, or a strobe light effect. Any thing stationary seemed normal, any moving object look like it was moving through some kind of strobe.
Never felt so disturbed about something in my life.

I too had this happen this morning and have been looking for answers. It started after I vomited for the second time today. ( i usually do vomit most mornings from what I assume is acid reflux. I cant afford a dr bill so Im kinda screwed) After the second trip, I noticed that there was the strange line of obscureness in my vision in my right eye. It only got bigger and went from a strobing effect to what it would look like if you were under water. Eventually, it worked its way to the top of my eyeball no longer obscuring my vision yet I could still see it. Now, it is gone. I was so scarred I was going blind! Guess I need to suck it up and take that bill huh..?

My eye doctor told me the stroking is an "ocular seizure " He said not to worry about it. It happens to me mist when coming from a brightly lit area to one not as bright. Misty from outside to in.

Dear Jay,

I have had bad acid refluxAND YOU MUST KNOW that throwing up every morning is VERY UN-NATURAL AND WRONG!!!  Esophageal CANCER RISK IS Greater THAN MOST KNOW!!*!!

If, possible, eat an APPLE later at night!!   IT has MADE CURED some people's Acid Reflux and has helped me on occassions - when I needed it and remembered to eat one.

I used to bleed internally and had to have MAJOR surgery in Seattle - Dr Oelsclagger at UWMC (University of Washingto Medical center).  He is one of the best in the world and therefore the risk is MUCH lessened.  They found my stomach in my chest because my hiatyl hernia was so large (a hole in diaghram).  I am now bleeding again and must start the Omneprazole again.  You can get it over the counter, BUT I JUST LEARNED that different proton inhibitors (acid reducers) are used for DIFFERENT Causes - SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, be aware that that may not be the wisest action!!!  Try eating apples, but for sure maybe about 2 hours or so before your bedtime - I wouldn't eat anything after that.

REALLY Hope this helps!!

TAKE CARE!!!
