Light Streaks when blinking ??
« on: August 24, 2014, 09:13:51 PM »
Hey everyone.

I have been off celexa for 7 months now after taking it for 2 years. Just recently, whenever I blink I see.a.streak of a light coming from any light source. It is more prevalent at night time or when its dark. Its as if thr streak is connecting.the light source to my eye amd only lasts until I blink.

Ive googled.it.of course and some people post lasik surgery have it.

Is this the celexa?? My allergies hit really hard too.. Is that connected some how ??
Has this happened to anyone

Funny you should say that because almost the same this is happening with me right now. I'm not having allergies, not taking Celexa or anything. Maybe it's an anxiety thing. Or I think it could possibly be from looking at the computer screen so much.

This is one of many visual problems I have, and my eyes are fine. I did take an SSRI for awhile and didn't notice these things until my anxiety returned, so I would suggest it is anxiety-based. I'm afraid I'm going to start seeing things, so naturally this symptom would bother me.

I have not always seen this way. Seems it was only that one evening that this was happening with me. You might want to check in with your doctor. Not that I think something may be wrong, but I have no idea what is causing this and a doctor would know for sure.

I see random spots out of the corners of my eye, when I blink/close my eyes for a period of time I'll get this flashing light kind of deal, when I focus on it I get afterimages/tracers just like some hallucinogens produce, surfaces with a vibrant pattern tend to pulsate, and when my eyes are opened sometimes there just these weird streak of color that temporarily occupy my visual field. But yea, I have no idea which ones are from drug use and which ones are from anxiety...but nonetheless they are harmless.
