About 7 years ago, when I was 45, I had a vitreal detachment. It was repaired with laser surgery. Prior to that surgery I was "seeing" white lightning bolt-like images when I coughed in the dark at night.
Recently, I have begun to see round images upon awakening and more lights. I have an appt. scheduled with an ophthalmologist.
About a month ago I began doing pushups with the "Perfect Pushup" handles. I'm up to about 30 pushups or so.
Could doing pushups cause another vitreal detachment -- due to pressure or whatever? I really enjoy feeling strong again in my chest and stomach but could it be a factor?
