Question

 

 

Hi!

I have recently noticed a tiny light dot appearing at the very center of my vision for about 3 or 4 seconds at maximum, then disappears.

I was not moving, not blinking - looking at the page as I read for example (no rapid eye movement). It happens once or twice a day.

I went to see my ophthalmologist and she made thorough examination with pupils dilated - everything was OK.

What is this?

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

When the vitreous gel inside your eye pulls or moves on the retina, you will see flashes of lights either in the peripheral of your vision or in the center of your vision.

Most of the time it is a benign condition and has no complications or underlying pathological causes and It was a good thing to check your eye with an ophthalmologist.
