i need to consult an opthalmologist about this condition
What is considered light flash as symptoms of retina detachment?
Recently, at NIGHT when I look at the traffic lights or headlights or any street lights, I see streak of long, thin light only when blinking and only for that second, the streak of light is the same color as the light I look at.
Example: I"m looking at the green traffic light, when I blink, I see a flash of the long, thin streak of green light for only that second; however, when I hold it with my eyes half close, I can see the long ray of green stay there.
Day Time: this only happen with those bright light/sun light or bright headlights, same thing as described above.
Is this consider light flashing as symptoms of Retina Detachment as an emergency condition?
