sparkles in vision - brain or eye problems???
« on: February 17, 2014, 01:34:51 PM »
Hello,

Have any of you experienced the following?

When I look at the sky and almost stare into it, I see lots and lots of faint little things spinning or flicking about! Like little flies with sparkly bottoms. This can also happen when I am looking out of a window against the brightness.

Is it anything to worry about??

Also when I wake up in the morning, there is a reflection of the hallway light on the white ceiling in my bedroom, now I am convinced that everytime I look at when I first wake up, there are lots and lots of ripples - what is that all about?

Ii am trying so hard to believe my doctor when she says it isn't a brain tumour and it is just anxiety, but then I get these symptoms and I get scared again.

Please help :(

The sky thing is totally normal... it's blue field entopic phenomenon, and pretty much everyone has it. As for the light thing, I don't understand what you are trying to describe, but it doesn't sound like anything alarming.

I get those since forever. When I was 6 I thought I was seeing atoms.

Yes I see the stuff spinning when I'm looking at the sky. It's not sparkly though. If I pay close attention it's like a circle-ish pattern spinning around.

My friend's son has/had that sparkly vision (started when he was about 12) he is an extremely anxious kid AND his blood pressure is a little on the low side - so either it's anxiety causing it OR have you had your pressure checked recently?  Maybe it's a little low (my friend's son was advised to up his salt intake)
(it doesn't sound like you are describing "floaters")

I have low blood pressure too, but I never thought there could be a connection

I have the same exact thing like when I look at the sky or I'm in a brightly painted room I see little white sparkles in my vision scares the hell out of me I went to an opthamologist twice because of that and random floaters but nothing has turned up, getting an MRI in a couple weeks just to make sure but my doc doesn't seem concerned also my blood pressure is high and blood pressure will have a lot of adverse effects on your eyes I hear
