Eye pressure, flashing lights?

Two weeks ago I started seeing flashing lights. Four days ago I noticed increased eye pressure when I eye lie down - now it's not just when I lie down.

What could this be? Does it sound serious?

Re: Eye pressure, flashing lights?

Get it checked out. I was seeing flashes of light also. You need to make sure there is nothing wrong with your retina. Sometimes the flashing is the pulling of the fluid behind the eye. I saw my dr. a couple of times and there was not a tear. I am seeing him this week for my annual exam. The flashes are not as bad but i still get them some time.....
Go see your eye dr.....bride527
