I've written several discussions about this topic so apologies in advance to anyone who's read them and gets tired of reading about the same thing. I was having several symptoms to do with my vision. I was seeing black dots (more like tv static that floaters) in dim lighting as well as in the sky. I was also getting a lot of after images like when you look at a light and still sort of see it for a few seconds after looking away. Except I was getting it a lot and it doesn't have to be lights it can be anything (like people's faces) and it seems to happen more in places with artificial lighting. Anyway I had my eyes tested and since I had described the symptoms to them beforehand, they did very intensive tests which involved dilating my pupils ect. And everything was 100% fine. I was glad to hear that of course. Except now and again I still worry about the symotoms and wonder when they'll eventually go away. One thing I know that would be a cause of concern is if I have flashes of light. The thing is there was one time before my eye test where I thought I had a flash of light in my eyes (I was already having other symptoms at the time so I was already worried about my eyes) but it was so quick and suttle I couldn't tell so I thought mabey it was just the light bulb. But after my eye test I've been experiencing this more than just once and all in different rooms so I know it's nothing to do with the lights being faulty. It seems more like flickering than a flash of light but it causes me a great deal of distress when it happens. But the thing is after all those tests I know that my eyes are fine so I wonder if I could just be imagining it. But I don't know if anxiety could cause me to inagine something that seems so real. Any thoughts or simular experiences? Thanks in advance.
