Question Seeing my pulse in my eye...

A couple weeks ago I started seeing weblike things when I blinked my right eye. I went right in to the opthomologist and he did a thorough exam including dilation and said it was due to a thinning of the gel in the vitreous humour. The weblike things are still there but he said they could take a long time to resolve.

A few times since then I have seen a kind of shadow over my right eye that lightens and darkens with the beat of my heart. It's especially obvious when I exercise and my heart is beating fast and when I look up at the sky or look at any plain white background. This is kind of scary and I think I'll call my eye doctor after the weekend. Does anyone know what might be a possible cause? I'm kind of assuming it's fairly harmless since I just had the checkup.
