over 50 bright small spots in my periferal vision for 5 seconds

This-morning I was doing my usual routine, had just finished my first coffee and was getting a reful in the kitchen.

Suddenly my vision was invaded by over 50 specks of light, the common kind that we all see now and then. This time there was over 50 of them, and they were in a circle around my vision. None were in the center.

This lasted for about 5 seconds, then disappeared.

This has never happened before at this level. I am concerned that my retina is damaged.

I am only 28, and read that this is supposed to happen at 50 or 60.
