Dr. P Jyoti :

I am Dr. P. Jyoti, MD. I promise to use my full experience and knowledge to provide answers specific to your question. Feel free to ask me anything.

Dr. P Jyoti :

hello would you like to chat on this?

Dr. P Jyoti :

Hello,

Dr. P Jyoti :

This is something which does happen in impaired vision.

Dr. P Jyoti :

The non-seeing eye appears to see objects momentarily which appear very real.

Dr. P Jyoti :

This is due to a trick of the brain.

Dr. P Jyoti :

Not much is known about this. It is believed to occur in the visual cortex, the part of the brain involved in vision.

Dr. P Jyoti :

It is similar to the phantom limb sensation in which amputees still feel their arms even when it is not there.

Dr. P Jyoti :

Similarly, in the absence of vision, the brain is believed to generate these random images which are not actually being seen by the eye.

Dr. P Jyoti :

Since you are being checked up by your opthalmologist, there is no serious issue here.

Dr. P Jyoti :

But do mention this to your doctor the next time you see him.

Dr. P Jyoti :

Also if the images increase, consult him for this.

Dr. P Jyoti :

But in general, you do not need to worry about this.

Dr. P Jyoti :

take care.

Dr. P Jyoti :
