I found your question forum and I want to ask, what would cause light to be flickering on one side of one eye. I had been searching on the computer for something and going from letter to letter and then I noticed that this light flickering started and the computer screen seemed to be more blurry or too bright. What would cause the change.
Up to that point my eyes were fine, except for the allergy symtoms I have had lately, which can make my eyes bother somewhat.
Light flickering could be retina traction due to posterior vitreous detachment, retinal tear, retinal detachment, or there could be inflammation of the retina. See an eye MD for an evaluation find one at www.aao.org
