I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

What causes blurred vision and flickering light in the vision field?

What would be the cause of both eyes periodically experiencing a c shape blur with flickering light zzzs traveling through sight? it is impossible to see through these episodes that last 15 minutes. When I close my eyes, it is still happening in the darkness. I do not experience any pain with these.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Sounds like floaters . To rule out any retinal hole or tear we need a complete retinal examination . If any problem is there we might need to do a retinal laser.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I m at work and was watching someone turning on the Christmas tree light s. Then that s when I couldn t focus on looking at it. The Tree lights appeared to grow very large,then smaller, back and forth till I looked away. It was horrible and my vision was very blurry for several minutes. Like maybe 15 minutes of being like this. I ve been complaining for several months now of things looking foggy. Sometimes alot more than others. What s wrong. I love Christmas lights. I also had RK surgery in 1996. I have 36 scar s in my eyes. I wonder if I m having some side effects from it
