For myopia and astigmatism
I'm a 20 year old male and I have high myopia and astigmatism. I have HTN, no surgeries or eye drops I have had glasses since the 6th grade. Lately I've been getting a bead of light in both(together or just one) eyes that travels around my peripheral vision every day for the past few weeks.
It comes up from below my vision and follows the the edge of my vision going up or toward my nose and up then disappears almost like it pops and leaves behind a feeling of fullness behind my eyes. It Seems to be worse when the lighting changes from light to dark and it last only 2 to 3 seconds.
Any ideas what it may be? Didn't happen very often before but now happens every 15-20 minutes. I have already been to the my optometrist a week ago he says that there are no holes or tears in the retina. He suspects ocular migraine but my problem are very brief.
Thanks for your Question
Most likely it is an ocular migraine. I would visit also a neurologist. Sometimes posterior vitreous detachment can cause floaters with flashes of light. I would visit an ophthalmologist with retina specialist to have full fundus and retina examination.
