Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Flashing lights can be a serious symptom.
Do you have any headache?
Do you have any vision los?
any vision loss?
does it involve both eyes?
The problem can be due to the blood flow reduction in the retina
THis can occur if there is blockage to the retinal blood vessel.
You may notice gradual loss of vision over time.
So an eye specialist should be consulted with.
YOu will need to se an eye specialist for retinal exam.
it is not that bad.
In most cases the symptoms will subside after few days.
And your vision will not be affected.
Still you should see your doctor for a clinical evaluation.
Sometimes these symptoms are due to the blood flow related issue as I suggested above.
Like a mini stroke
Pleae get your cholesterol checked.
These symptoms do subside by themselves.
No specific treatment is required.
that is a possibility --given the history of spinning and flashing lights.
they can be warning signs if there is some reduction to blood flow to brain.
