Hi Michelle,
unfortunately we don't fully understand why this occurs. There are reflexes, some people feel abnormal reflexes, where the eye will experience bright flashes with loud noises, too. You should do 2 things: get a good checkup with an eye doctor and try to avoid loud noises or wear hearing protection.
Best wishes,
