Customer Question
looking at a smooth light...
I have recently noticed over several minths that when looking at a smooth light background, when I blink my left eye I see large darker blotches in my field of vision that disappear quickly after a moment but reappear each time I blink. They are not floaters, and do not change shape over time. They don’t affect my normal vision when looking around but I know they aren’t apsupposed to be there. Your thoughts re what is causing this would be appreciated as I haven’t found anything by searching online.
