did they examine your eyes on Sunday morning? was everything normal in your eyes?

have you had eye surgery before?

sometimes trauma to the eye or head can cause you to see flashes of flight

sometimes small temporary blood clots in the eye can affect vision.

sometimes dust or mucus in the eye can cause floaters or affect vision.
