    White flash in eye?

    Hi,
    The past few weeks I've become more aware of this white bubble / flash thing in my right eye occasionally. It only seems to be when I look down possibly but I'm not sure. I darent Google cos I can only imagine the horrors that'll come up. Anyone know what it could be or if have a similar thing? X

    Are you myopic (short-sighted)? Doesn't sound at all serious and happens to me too if I move eyes quickly.

    Have you been to optician recently for eye test?

    No not short sighted or anything, don't wear glasses. I've not had an eye test no as I've felt I never needed to. Just not sure why it would happen, trying not to freak out over it. I mean it only happens every now and again, but cos I started thinking about it I'm really aware if it happens X

    We all have visual anomalies. Floaters, flashes, fuzzies etc. Just like other NORMAL noises our bodies make, most don't even notice nor give it a passing thought. Anxiety sufferers on the other hand?

    Agreed, yep, I get random visual blips all the time. If you had the sort of disturbances that indicated a major problem, you'd know.

    I actually have googled this stuff (HA flare when my migraines were acting up) and far more major stuff than you discuss here is still of no consequence whatsoever.

    Thanks for these replies, I'll try just to ignore it if it happens again. Glad I didn't Google! X

    Things like this can be caused by changes in fluid at the back of the eye due to stress. They normally just go away on their own.
