flashing lights on left eye

I GOT STRESSED.  SHORTLY AFTER I STARTED GETTING FLASHING LIGHTS IN MY LEFT EYE...EVERY 5 TO 10 SECONDS AND HASN'T STOPPED.  I NOTICE IT IN A DARK ROOM WHEN I AM MOVING.  BESIDES SEEING A DOCTOR, ANYHING I CAN DO?  WILL IT EVENTUALLY GO AWAY BY ITSELF?  IT DOESN'T HURT.  SEEMS I MAY HAVE A SLIGHT HEADACHE -BUT NOT REALLY AT TIMES.  BUT NOTHING THAT IS REAL BOTHERSOME.

THANK YOU

Yes you need to see an ophthalmologist. If could be a vitreous detachment or it could be eye migraines. Call for an appointment on Monday. Find an eye MD near you at www.aao.org
