Hi,
Welcome to Ja and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Now if you got only a SINGLE flash of lightning and the problem has NOT recurred then you can wait to go to the hospital. However if the problem is persistent or is occurring repeatedly then you should go to the hospital.

A single flash of lightning is not unusual in this situation however persistent light flashes or even floaters in the vision which dont resolve within an hour of them appearing warrant immediate evaluation in the hospital.

Do you have any more questions?
