Hello all,

I'm posting this to see if anyone can give me any feed back on something I believe I saw.

This happened to me about a month ago and I'm wondering if maybe I'm over thinking.

I was laying in my bed getting ready to go to sleep when I saw a light flash very similar to that of a camera. My first thought was that someone was taking pictures of me outside my window (One of my siblings is very playful). I got out of my bed, and noticed my dark curtains were closed, I also checked outside only to find a dark backyard. I start looking around to find any sources of light but realized there no such thing. (cellphones, electronics...ect) I am sure I saw a bright flash in my room that came from within... but I can't figure where it's from...

Any ideas? Has anyone experienced anything similar?

There are several medical explanations for what you experienced.

Were your eyes closed? Have you had your eyes checked lately? Are you taking any medications? I agree, that there is most likely a medical explanation for this. If it continues to happen then I would get my eyes checked out. Now if there was someone else in the room with you and they saw the same thing then I would wonder what it could be.

Yes, please get your eyes checked right away if it happens again and/or there is an increase in "floaters"
in either eye.

Hello! Welcome to City Data.

I know exactly what you are talking about and tell you with a hundred percent certainty it is a medical issue because I have gone through it. From my experience, when you blink it looks like a camera has flashed either around your body or somewhere in the room. That is what makes this condition confusing because it doesn't look like it is coming from your eyes; from your perspective it genuinely looks like an outside source.

If you do a Google search or even go onto WebMD you can find that this is the symptom of a couple of eye conditions that vary. I had to see an eye doctor and in my case we are just monitoring it but in other cases, if it is persistent, it can be severe. So, please, please, please do get your eyes checked.

What if there happened to be a second person in the room who also saw it? Thank you all for your feedback!

But there wasn't.

Just to be on the safe side rule out the eye issue. That's what I highly recommend.

Was there a second person in the room that saw exactly what you did? You never mentioned that in the first post.
