Tightness in eye, shooting light vision, pressure sensation. What is the cause?

I see bright shooting lights in my right eye. These occur in the very right portion of the eye. There is also somewhat of a sensation in my tight eye. The sensation is similar to pressure like the eye feels slightly swollen. There is no pain. The bright lights started yesterday and have been occurring off and on since. Thank you
