Thanks for the post.The reason for the seeing zigzag layer can be because of the problems in a structure called macula which is very important for the central clear vision.I would ask you to to have your eyes examined by a eye specialist as early as possible

Ophthalmologist Dr. Vidhya's  Response
Where exactly do you see the zigzag layer? Is it in the central part of your vision or throught out the image?.Does it move along with your eye movement? Do you experience flashes and blackening of vision? Has it progressed in size?

I had to ask all these questions to find out the reason (retinal/macular).if you have any of the above mentioned symptoms it is better to get examined by a retinal specialist.
