Last month, I experienced flashing lights in the left corner of my left eye which was annoying. I used to experience migraine headaches and read that some sufferers experienced flashing in their eyes as a precursor of a migraine attack. Two days later, I did not suffer a migraine headache but still had the flashing lights in my eye.
I have lived with “floaters” in both of my eyes which are considered normal but still they are annoying. I now have a large dark floater in my left eye that appeared at the same time as the flashing. I Googled “Flashing in the Eye” and read all the horror stories of potential retina detachment and warnings not to drive under these conditions.
I called for an appointment and had to wait one week before there was an opening. Now, enter the Twilight Zone….another Cactus Thorns Blogger was experiencing the same symptoms in the same site in the same eye around the same time in late January. Unbelievable!
I was able to find an example of eye floaters and thought it would be of interest to you.
The good news is these eye floaters will one day clump together and the weight will make them sink to the bottom of the eye socket out of your sight of vision.
My eye examination indicated I have no Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration or tearing of the retina. I have better than 20/20 vision and he was okay that I use 99cent readers. It is all part of the aging process. Bette Davis said, “Growing old isn’t for sissies.”
Well, we’re back to blogging! My fellow blogger also received a clean bill of health for his eyes!
