Shadow-like anomalies in peripheral vision

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hello everyone,

I am a male, 23 and I' ve noticed quite a strange thing about my vision. First of all, i should mention that i do feel migraine-like aches above/behind my eyes on occasions. Not everyday, but certainly often enough. I have also recently developed a PVD along with some floaters, went to check my eyes, ophtomologist couldn't find any sign of retinal detachment or anything similar and said that my ocular pressure is perfect.

BUT - the strange thing that i experienced maybe around six months ago or so is that strange phosphene-like shadow thing in both my eyes, maybe a bit more pronounced on the left one. Its pretty much the same thing as if you pushed an eye with your finger and seeing that shadow, but it also became apparent when lifting my head all the way up and looking above and even a bit further (as if you'd wanna throw a ball above your head and looking back) I see bow-like shadow right down in my peripheral vision like two black half-circles with a bright shadow around it, again - like a phosphene. It is also apparent when my sight is fixed on something and i start quickly rotating my head. I see it on the sides, as well like shadowy dots.

I should also mention that i suffer from a bit lower blood pressure than normal, but not significantly. Around 55 bpm. Could it be due to a low pressure or something else? I would really appreciate if someone knew what that thing i described could be, i can even try to draw a picture of what it looks like and send it to you.

Thanks in advance!
