Smile Bright flashes when eyes are closed?

I have been experiencing seeing bright flashes of light when my eyes are closed and there is not a light on in my home, just wondering what could be causing this, it's really been bugging me, Its hard to get any sleep.

Thanks you.

I would not delay in seeing a retinal specialist.

I have the same thing and was told it was that my lenses were swollen from my diabetes being out of control but I'm not sure I believe that. Let me know if you find anything out, please!
