They are usually harmless, however sometimes can result in a tear in the... (1 replies)
... I have flashes in both of my eyes (more prominent in my right) only when I run or jump. I just has an exam with a retina specialist and he took a picture of my retina as well (OCT). He said all looked good and healthy but clearly something is wrong. I also see black spots for a second ad flashes when I cough. Sometimes the flashes are accompanied by streaks that look like...

... UPDATE 2: Went for a more thorough and intensive slit exam on Friday October 27th. With dilation, they found nothing again other than some kind of inflammation which shouldn't cause this, but was responsible for some light sensitivity I've been having lately. They then did an OCT eye exam, which is pretty much the best equipment they have, and again they found nothing. The... (5 replies)

... I had cataract surgery on my right eye back in December. I had 3 months of good vision and then things started to go a little blurry. I went to my optometrist and she didn't see any problem, so I went for 6 months in total frustration as I could tell my eye was not seeing clearly.

... Some people don't need to do the facedown thing...I didn't. I don't think most people do. But the recovery wasn't pleasant....And I developed the usual cataract from that surgery, but the cataract surgery was a breeze. Hardly any recovery needed.

... Oh my you had a vitrectomy? That is a way more invasive procedure than I had. I had laser surgery to seal the tear. I feel for you.

I am not much of a stomach sleeper anyway. I also saw where with a mucular... (3 replies)
