It all started when one day I noticed a quite a few floaters[Greyish/black in color and somewhat big]. I'd never really had any lingering ones before but I didn't think much of it. A few days later I noticed, as best as I can explain it, looked like lights flickering in vision. I initially thought it only happened under artificial lighting but I now have seen it in natural lighting/dimness as well. The best way I can describe it is that when I move my eyes say up/down/left or right (I've never seen it happen while my eyes were still AS FAR AS I AM AWARE) I notice this, what I know to be, blackness it sometimes only takes up a small amount of vision but some times it takes up most of it,central and peripheral, it only lasts for a SPLIT second and it happens in BOTH eyes. I've included a picture with an example of what it looks like for the split second it happens. http://oi61.tinypic.com/2hfjp12.jpg When the black "flicker" appeared I went and got my eyes tested and other than needing a new pair of prescription glasses (which I haven't gotten yet) they didn't find anything to worry about. The eye test took a while and they dilated my pupils which didn't go back to normal for around 48 hours and i had lingering side effects it seemed, for example my right eye for 3-4 days after just felt.. weird, that's the only way i can describe it.Other symptoms I have been experiencing which may or not be connected is, slight fatigue, my eyes seem to be bloodshot, and when I stare at things, aka a blank wall or busy pattern it kind of feels like my eyes are seeing static or shaking violently like as in it almost seems like my eyesight is vibrating with a ton of little dots i can notice it almost ALWAYS. I also experience this in dark or dim rooms[also is perfectly lit rooms] it looks like thousands of slightly visible white dots are moving, also can be described as static. It is starting to freak me out more and more. I also sometimes wake up with a little bit of clear mucus on my eyes.
