Flashes? To be honest I didn't see any flashes .. unless I begin to think with my anxiety mind and I begin to say wait .. what if I did see flashes .. maybe there was one and I have retinal deatchment I am doomed! No but I didn't see any flashes, just a dark circle the size of a pea, floated like a floater etc. Darker then the average floater, when I went to drink water I could see it through the water and I thought a bug was in my water, then I looked again and I was like wow it's that little annoying thing again. But so far today I didn't see it at all, the only time I see "flashes of light" is when I am in a very very dark room and I see those patterns, I think someone told me those are normal and everyone sees them but I forgot their name. But no I didn't see any flashes while it was in my vision and the thing you said about my focusing system, I have know I made it worse by to much computer, because when I look at my finger then I look very far away it takes a second for my vision to adjust since it's so use to looking at a close distance. So do you think it's anything seriously dangerous and should I be stressing over it? I was thinking it might be a floater, but why did it just last for a while?

I don't think there is anything to worry about at this time. But if you are a worrywart, then perhaps an examination will give you the peace of mind. Our brain is really smart, it will eliminate what we don't need to see, and floaters fall into that category. It may still be floating around but happens not to be in your line of sight while you look at bright background.

I remember one time out of the blue I had a lot more floaters flying about and I am one very used to floaters myself and have seen lots in others, but it was actually bothersome, especially if I were in a bright warehouse, I perceived them as flies flying about near the ceiling constantly. That got me worried a little, and went for a DFE and all was fine. Those episodes disappeared after sometimes, the "darn flies" are still in my eyeballs, but my brain had "erased" them :)

So relax and enjoy. Life is too short! :D

Cheers!
