hello would you like to chat on this?
This is something which does happen in impaired vision.
The non-seeing eye appears to see objects momentarily which appear very real.
This is due to a trick of the brain.
Not much is known about this. It is believed to occur in the visual cortex, the part of the brain involved in vision.
It is similar to the phantom limb sensation in which amputees still feel their arms even when it is not there.
Similarly, in the absence of vision, the brain is believed to generate these random images which are not actually being seen by the eye.
Since you are being checked up by your opthalmologist, there is no serious issue here.
But do mention this to your doctor the next time you see him.
Also if the images increase, consult him for this.
But in general, you do not need to worry about this.
Hope that satisfies your query. If so, please choose a positive rating.If you have any other queries, do ask. Wish you good health and a quick recovery. Bonus is always welcome!Thank you.Dr. P. Jyoti
