moving dots of light in my left eye
Every once in a while, I see tiny, wandering dots of light in my left eye. Typically, a single dot will meander slowly from edge to edge in my peripheral field, but occasionally, two or three will "fire" upwards and splay out like rockets in a fireworks display. It has been happening more and more recently, often accompanied by temporaty partial blindness in that eye.

I know it's not floaters, I know it's not migraine. If I shut my eye, they disappear, and when I open it back up, the dot is continuing to follow the path it was on before I shut the eye.

I have macular dystrophy with foveal sparing (related to MD, but progresses more slowly). Anyone know what's going on?
