    Please make an appointment to see an Ophthalmologist pronto. Don't delay. It might be nothing, but my "black blob" which was clearly in the line of my vision field was a detached retina. You want to catch these things as soon as possible. Good luck and do keep us posted!

      I strongly agree.

      In my case it was a retinal tear. Itwas repaired by laser treatment.

      Also, I found that the damage was only visible for a brief moment. My conjecture was that the brain used other parts of the image to make a 'patch' so all seemed well.
