Hi,

Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Now this can be the result of a number of things but considering the recent trauma that you had it is possible that you may have damaged your vision in the injury. Presence of flashes of light in front of the eyes can be indicative of retinal detachment which is a serious condition if left untreated. This would also cause floaters in front of the eyes such as black objects etc. Sometimes it can also result in pain in the eye. This can be evaluated by your opthalmologist via a simple examination as well as with the help of a fundoscopy and retina exam.

At the same time, these flashes of light can be due to damage to the vitreous humor of the eye which is the gel like substance present behind your cornea and in front of the retina. This can again be evaluated by an eye doctor.

Now any new appearance of flashes of light should ALWAYS be evaluated by an opthalmologist so that the serious conditions can be ruled out and i would suggest that you have this evaluated ASAP and not delay.

Do you have any more questions?

I had a retinal detachment surgery about 2 months ago, Scleral buckle only was used. It was a chronic detachment with no symptoms - visual acuity was 9/10 before surgery, now is 9.5/10. I have high astigmatism in the operated eye and there is still some subretinal fluid which seems it is gradually reabsorbing. After surgery I've been experiencing some flashing lights. There is a small area of my peripheral vision that is lost. In this area I can see flashing that I would describe like "flickering little stars" of the "moonlight effect". Its almost constantly there and it seems to be aggrevated by light. It also seems it;s a getting a little better. What could this be? … read more
