I don't normally sign up to forums like this but It seemed active, Recently I've been geting black flickering around the entire outside on my vision which last anywhere from 2-10 seconds (In both eyes, I've tested closing one and the other while the flickering is taking place to see If it was a specific one) I've had flashes of light before afew times of the past 3 years but made nothing of it, have floaters and such (I'm 22) but this new black flickering like I'm closing my eyes really really fast but they're wide open Is rather confusing and I can't find anything related to it, Anyone have any guesses?

    Hi Jayden,  it could be anything, go to an Optometrist & have your eyes checked.  If s/he finds anything abnormal, s/he can refer you to the  eye clinic at your local hospital.

    Don't leave it.

    Good luck, let me know how you get on.
