Re: white "static ball" image in peripheral vision
I had the white flashes of light in my peripheral vision many (25) years ago. Also a vision in the same area like fireworks after they explode, cascading down. Real pretty but scared the bejeezus out of me. Opthomologist told me I had "vitreous detatchment", vitreous was separating from my retina, same as you were told. My head used to hurt, too, like a sinus headache, and I sometimes got a glob of gel (vitreous?) on my eyeball that couldn't be blinked away. That would go away by itself but I hated the feeling of something in my eye each time that glob would appear. Never had the "static ball " or "blurry water" vision, though. Anyway, the dr. didn't seem too worried about it, gave me a prescription for some kind of eyedrops and that took care of the problem. Never came back, either. You didn't say if your dr. prescribed drops or anything. Good luck!
