Question

 

 

Hello,

I have been experiencing a flickering vision problem, like when lights flicker. My whole vision flickers when I look at objects and I don't know why. This has been happening for the past few days. When I wake up in the morning, the flickering is a lot worse, but gets better as I open my eyes more.

When I put on my glasses, the flickering gets better. I also see these vibrations, like when I look at a blank wall, there are vibrations moving across my vision (without glasses on).

I also have floaters, although my eye doctor said that they were harmless. What is happening to me? I also have dry eyes from looking at screens too much and my eyes are tired.

Could this have contributed to this problem?

Thanks

Thanks for your Question

This flickering and eye floaters are related and they are caused by posterior vitreous detachment which is a normal process of separation between the retina and the vitreous.
