  • See a flash of light in my eyes.
  • Partial loss of vision.
  • Suddenly dim eyes.

  • See temporarily darkened and get better.

     Although there is no visual abnormality. But eye health checks are important things that should not be neglected. The general public should have an eye examination. (Including retinal examination) every 2-4 years and for those over 50 years old, retinal examination by an ophthalmologist should be done every 1-2 years if there are any of the 6 symptoms mentioned above.
