Customer Question

Thank you - and re: both of my eyes!
I've had floater and feeling of something in my left eye now for about 2 months, but this morning I've been experiencing some tiny pin-size bright light flashes in my right eye (for first time), also experienced some strange pain in the area of my forehead before sleeping last evening which I attributed to possible sinus issue. I'm 68 and quite healthy, this is something new to me. Since I live now and work in Guatemala, the only opthamologist is about 4 hours away, this is Friday, etc...
Please give me your advice or refer me on to other online help; I thank you so much.

This only happened for a very short time and isn't happening now? When was the last time you had your eyes examined?
