I am seeing electric signals fluctuating in my vision field. They are like bright patch of lights or shadows distorting everything see. They are always there in all light conditions and even I close my eyes in complete darkness, I can still see the bright electric signals flickering in front of me. What is worse is that my body is somehow connected to my eye problem. Every time I feel about the disturbing eye problems, my back and stomach start to hurt. Even I close my eyes, I can feel the energy coming out of my eyes like fire.

I already saw an ophthalmologist and he did a thorough exam of my eyes including retina and optic nerve. He couldn't find anything abnormal. I am suspecting my problem might be due to problems in my nerve system.

    Visual disturbances can have many causes,go to your doctor. Probably will do blood tests,maybe a ct scan or mri. Lots of visual disturbances are benign. Is there any possibility you could have lymes disease? That can caus many visual disturbances. Also consider getting another opinion from a retnal specialist. A small macular hole,tear or pvd might be a caus.
