    Its very difficult for any person or even a Gp to tell what is wrong with eyes as they need all the equipment to see inside your eye. If you are concerned you should see an optician ASAP.   It may only be the contrast between light and dark,causing an after image on your retina,or it could be something more serious.  Dont neglect any problem with eyes,it doesnt have to be painful to be serious and needing attention.

      Well done you are doing the right thing in getting an eye test. Do mention the problem.

      If it gets worse or you develop other sight problems,do see your doctor after your eye test.    Try watching TV with the light on to see if that gets rid of the problem.
