Intraocular pressure raised once spontaneously, treated for a week, returned to baseline normal and steady since. Got vitreous floaters shortly after.
Last night when I turned off the light, I saw a couple of flashes when I flicked my eyes around (both eyes).
I had some vitreous floaters in my eyes since November last year and has got them checked with various ophthalmologists since. The last time I got them checked was last Wednesday.
The flashes seemed to stop when my eyes had fully adapted to the dark, but I still get worried if this is a sign of a torn retina.
I feel normal, the amount of floaters remains roughly the same. I would like to get a second opinion on this issue.
Many thanks for your help. I attach my Ultrasound B scan last Wednesday 24th July.
Thanks for your Question
Having eye floaters means there is some sort of posterior vitreous detachment. Vitreous is attached to the retina and for many reasons, vitreous will be separated from the retina either partially or completed. This separated is called posterior vitreous detachment.
When you flick your eye or move them suddenly from on side to another, the detached vitreous will stimulate retina which causing you to see flashes of lights which is completely normal.
Your B-Scan is completely normal.
I am actually curious about the previous attack of high intraocular pressure that you had before. What was the cause of it?
