I have been having white bright light flashes (mostly in the right eye, but apparant in both sometimes) for 6 months. In the past month they have gotten so severe I can barely work, get on computer, watch tv, etc. It seems to get worse when I am exposed to light (artificial), but also happens when I am in bed at night in the dark with my eyes closed.
I already have damaged peripheral vision and get regular peripheral vision tests, which are normal (or rather, stable with optic nerve atrophy). That is my regular. I have been to see my nuero optho 2 times and a retinal specialist once in the past few weeks and NOTHING. "Occular Migraines" has come up, but I DO NOT think that is what this is, It is CONSTANT and never really goes away. I have read about a genetic conditions that cause this problem, but aside from that nothing.
I seem to be exhibiting other neurological symptoms. Bad circulation, numbness (goes away), word confusion, slurred speech (temporary), but my MRI is "normal".
Any suggestions on what to look at?
