Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of experience. I will be happy to help you today.

Seeing a "prism" or light flashes needs to be evaluated by an Ophthalmologist. You may have a sixth nerve palsy that is causing your problem. Other causes may be early onset glaucoma, retinal detachment or brain tumor. This is something you should not overlook.

I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please kindly rate me a 5-Star. Thank you
