Months I have has a circle of flashing light in my right

Customer Question

For many months I have has a circle of flashing light in my right eye, i can only see it in daylight or artificial light it happens when I move my eye. Looking at a computer The flash is a dart of light then the circle appears I can see through the circle, when I am driving and looking further away the circle is bigger, still flashes but not as bright. I am getting quite concerned as two visits to an optician as not given me an explanation. I am a female 63 years old and wears glasses for shortsighted and reading although I tend to read without my glasses. My prescription has changed in 12 months in the eye that I see the flash is this just a case of Pvd ?I have read that the flashes with this condition are seen in the dark, I don't see the flash in the dark. I would be grateful for any information you can provide. I said months it is approx. 8 months since I noticed the flash and it is there every day. Thank you for your time.
