Eye Flashes
An_226156 posted:
So I have these weird flashes in my left eye. Bright spots suddenly appear for seemingly no reason and disappear just as suddenly. They don't seem to interfere with my vision at all, I tend to notice them most often at night will trying to sleep. Sometime I notice them during the day but not very often. Sometimes I will see them a lot for a couple of days and then sometimes I won't seem them for a month or two.

I have had two or three standard eye exams since I first noticed them and the Doctor didn't say anything was out of the ordinary.

I am just kind of curious as to what these could be and if I should be super worried.
