Ghosting, Light Streaks, Starbursts, Halos, Glares.

I am 17 y/o and I first started to notice ghost images in October 2018 and later on I started observing light streaks, starbursts and some halos and glares too. (My ghosting changes with the movement of eyelid. And the light streaks appear only when I move my eyelid/eyelashes a little lower or squint and never appear when my eyes are open normally or wide open. I have this in both eyes.
I haven't been to any eye doctor yet. I am a not-so-old myope too. (Got my specs in mid 2018).
Is this due to stress? (Which I have all the time). Or lack of sleep?
I am very worried. What could this be? Pls help!
