Black ball covering right eye with blue ring. What could be it?

Hi, While looking in the mirror last night I saw a round black ball covering my right eye. The ball had a blue ring around it. I could bare see my eye through the back ball. It only lasted for about 10-15 minutes. This is so strange. My eye doctor worked me in this morning it is not my eyes. He is sending me to a neurologist. I am female and I am 66 yrs old. Do you have any thoughts on this. Thank you.

hello and thank you for your question.
Signs and symptoms could be:
retinal detachment
early onset of migraine headache
tumor or other pressure on optic nerve
blood clot

Best to continue seeing your doctors to get these ruled out.
