Brief Answer:
Flashes of light

Detailed Answer:

The flashes of light may be due cataract, posterior vitreous detachment, retinal detachment, migraine, holes, lattice etc. You definitely need a dilated fundus examination with peripheral retinal examination to rule out all these causes. So visit your ophthalmologist and do a thorough examination once more.
