In January 2013, I was looking for an answer as to why I was seeing flashing lights in my vision. I found someone who answered here (June 2007) and I saved his question and the doctor's response, 'scintillating scotoma' on my computer.
Now, in May 2015, during a routine vision test, the doctor discovered I have a hole in my retina which he says has been there for a while. He said I would have seen flashing lights.
So now I go to a retina specialist for further examination, which might lead to using a laser to close the hole permanently. If I don't, he said I could have a detached retina, meaning blindness.
I'm really surprised that 2 years has passed since I had these symptoms. What could have caused the hole in my retina without further damage? Only by the grace of God do I still have 20 vision in that eye!
