Hello Jim

on occasional flash of light is typically not worrisome. However there is a small chance that you may be having a problem with your retina, most concerning would be a tear in your retina. I would encourage you to be seen sometime in the next week for an exam, sooner if you start to see specs floating in your vision, Regards, XXXXX XXXXX
