Opened eye to red spot in vision but gone in a blink

I知 probably being insanely paranoid but I noticed when opening my eyes after having them closed for a bit to try to sleep, I noticed a very blood looking red in my vision, I blinked and it was just. Completely gone.
Earlier I saw a random flash.

Additional info is that I知 dealing with bronchitis atm and a slight sinus related headache.

Re: Opened eye to red spot in vision but gone in a blink

Could be related to a type of migraine....however, we have constant changes in the vitreous as we age, floaters being the result.

Anything that is sporadic and immediately gone....note it, but it doesn't sound serious.

I've had 3 vitrious detachments, and see different lights sporadically...I know what to expect, however....the floaters are very bothersome at times.
Anything that hangs around or intensely worsens, best to get it checked out asap.

How is your blood pressure? Many times, coughing and pressure around eyes can cause what you describe.

Hope you feel better soon! Maybe it's time for a full complete eye exam with a retinal scan etc.

Keep us updated how you're doing.

Thank you so much for responding. So far, I致e yet to get a complete migraine. Maybe a sinus related pressure in my head. But I am coughing severely due to a horrible case of bronchitis. Since then, I didn稚 see it much but tonight ahain, I saw red in my vision for a split moment. I知 really unsure what to think of it. If it continues after I知 no longer sick, maybe I値l get it checked.
