I heve been getting a flashing sensation on my perifiral vision and a headache afterwards for the last week or so. I suspect it has something to do with something else besides my vision. Could you suggest what I should do?

Stephan, there may be many reasons, but a serious cause of your symptoms is retinal detachment. The best would be to see an ophthalmologist ASAP and make sure that it isn’t the case. Good luck.
