History: Around early April 2019, I vomited but when I did I didn't close my eyelids. The force caused me to see stars. After that, I noticed a lot of floaters and also saw stars whenever I looked at bright lights, which would be most visible when I look up at the sky. I saw the symptoms online and thought it was a retinal tear. So I went to my local optometrist and they did an exam and suggested that my eyes were healthy with no tear.
However, to this day I still see stars (I can definitely distinguish floaters from seeing stars as it looks like small tiny strokes of fleeting shiny lines... almost like numerous shooting stars) whenever I look at really bright lights or look up to the sky.
Fast forward to this January, I had my annual eye appointment and I didn't mention anything about my eye troubles since the first optometrist said I was okay. Again, my annual eye exam went fine and there were no issues found. But, I still see the stars to this day. I don't know if this is all in my head and its all psychological, or if there's actually a brain/eye issue?
