white light after blinking
Over the past several months I have experienced on occasion bright white light for an instant after blinking.  It immediately follows the blink and last for a fraction of a second (both eyes).  It is similar to lightening when a flash lights up the entire sky.  When it happens, I catch myself sometimes checking the overhead light to see if it flickered (which of course it did not) because that what it seems like.  I experience this maybe 4-5 times a week for a few blinks (usually about 5-6 blinks in a row), but it seems to be occuring more frequently lately.  Is this something to worry about, or the beginning of some condition that can be corrected?

You must see an Eye MD ophthalmologist for an exam. Find one at www.aao.org

It is necessary to rule out retinal hole, tear or vitreous traction
