After a whiplash accident, I developed lots of floaters and other weird eye disturbances. Id like to compare notes on a couple..first let me say that I did have my eyes checked twice since this, a full retina exam, etc and nothing was found.
I now can see the "entopic phenomenon" where if i look into a light or at the sky I can see the blood flowing thru my vision...it looks like swirling, clear comets.
I have what appear to be little "flash burns" that pop into my vision, then fade after about 2 seconds...they look like "electric" spots, or the afterimage after a flash goes off.
My vision has "snow" in it, and patterns, like on chairs, mini blinds, carpeting..shimmer..bright colors next to each other shimmer and pop..its very weird.
Id like to hear from anyone who has these symptoms, and if anyone has ever gotten an explaination from a doctor about it. The doc I went to very quickly dismissed what i had to say and told me there was no explaination for any of it.
