Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
I would strongly advise you to see a retina specialist as examination is important to confirm the diagnosis. Possibilities include migraine, posterior vitreous detachment, retinal tear, retinal detachment, retinal artery occlusion etc. Vitreous traction can cause flashes of light. An examination is important. Thanks and best wishes.
No, I am asking you to see another for a second opinion. I do not think the flashes of light are related to retinal pigment epitheiopathy. If the RPE is perifoveal in location then you may have blurred vision just off center. Eventually the foveal region itself becomes damaged and visual acuity falls. When the RPE is peripheral you may have difficulty in night vision and constriction of visual fields. To rule out other conditions mentioned above you need to see another retina specialist for a second opinion. Thanks.
