I am terrified of getting retinal detachment. Explain a light flash please
USA (United States of America)
I am 14 years old, my name is Jackson. I have some floaters that have developed since I was 13.
I have one dark floater that remains in my field of vision all of the time, and I have many other floaters in my vision when looking at the sky or snow. I am absolutely terrified of going blind from Retinal Detachment.
Are light flashes something that envelops the entire field of vision, or is it like a little small dot? How long do they last? Whenever I see an after image of something bright, I immediately have a panic attack thinking I am getting a detached retina. Please help. (I don't wear glasses, I do not take any medication, my family does not have any history with eye diseases.)
I went to an Optometrist who told me the tissue in my eye was fine, and if I saw any light flashes, or curtains in my vision I should go back.
I don't see the shadows, or curtains in vision.
Please help me!
