Hi, I'm 22 and wear glasses. I am very nearsighted. For as long as I could remember I've always had floaters. However, they are pretty small and only show up when I look at the right kind of background and are generally not a problem.
Three nights ago (including tonight) when I laid down to go to sleep, I started to experience flashes. They occur only when I move my eyes in a dark room. They are more pronounced when my eyes are closed.
1. Could this be an early sign of vitreous detachment or posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) or some other condition?
2. If not, then what else could be the cause?
If you need any additional information, please ask. I plan on informing my doctor tomorrow, but would appreciate any extra insight here. Thank you.
