Why do I see a black/white circle when I blink/look to the side
Hi I am a bit worried about this weird symptom I am having. So usually when I wake up and I blink quickly I will see a white circle in the dead center of my vision on a bright contrast or black circle if looking at a dark wall. Also when i look side to side (for example if i look all the way to the right with only my right eye i can see the dark circle. I am 20 yrs old and have many floaters in both eyes. I have been to the ophthalmologist/optometrist 5 times already for my floaters in the past and gone through the eye exam where there look at your eye with a light and microscope/lens of some sort and everytime they said my eyes were fine and healthy. Could someone please explain to me if this is serious or any other tests I should do? Thankyou
I suffer from the exact same problem! I have seen these spots go on and off like twice a week, and today after I woke up I can see a small black circle that appears after I blink. I can also make it appear if I rub the affected eye. I am beyond scared....
My wife is complaining of this happening, first thing in the morning big black area spot sunflower on waking, then it goes, checked this and it is both eyes, I have asked about this before and reply given this is normal, any chance of a reason etc.
We have been to the hospital, they seem baffled, checking for stroke etc, to be given mri brain scan and eyes have been checked- nothing found.
She has low BP, hospital seemed not concerned, being nagged by me to drink liquid more, she avoids - due to a weak bladder.
hi there, about two years ago I had this white circle in my left eye when I blinked, I cannot see very clear in that circle,I had it for about 2 weeks then it disappeared and now its back...I went to the eye exam doctor and he said in world war 2 some men were getting this, and they could not figure out what it was besides stress.I don't think I'm stressed.. .is this true?
I think someone in my family member has the same thing as you. They said it was "due to stress" as well and something about a burst vessel. If you get any other information, please let me know. she gets eye pain when stressed, too.
