One month ago suddeny I started to see bright flashes of light in the far corner of my right eye's visual field, the next day I was diagnosed with vitreous body detachment, The day after the exam I started to have tightness and pin in the corner of that eye and even in my temple., Ever since I have some aches and pains there, sometimes a strong feeling that there is something in my eye, then the feeling goes away, had thos several times. I still see flashes of light, but only when the Sun goes down, never during the day. I was told that the flashes could go on for a long time, but the pain is not typical. I wonder why I have this little annoying pain then? And what is that false feeling of forign body in the eye? My father's sister has glaucom, catarct and macular degeneration, so I am concerned. THAK YOU in advance for helping me clarifying things.
