disturbance in vision
I see a flickering bright light of-centre in my left eye - when dark the same area is black. I went to an eye specialist and he could not find anything wrong (not retina detachment). It has been like this for about a month now. The left eye also jumps sometimes - is this related? Could this all be caused by stress? What could it be?

Dear Laslappie
This can be caused by a type of migraine - usually without any pain. Ask your eye specialist to try a preventative migraine medication like Sandomigran and see if it goes away?
