Yes similar,it was a bright arc of light which was really obvious in the dark this has evolved into a shimmery light I see during the day which flashes in front of my vision When I sW the surgeon he said he couldn't  see a problem and that it was probably  the healing process. I think flashes of light should always be a concern and
I would definitely  get yours checked  out if you are worried it is worth peace of mind . I am seeing my surgeon  again soon and will ask him again about these flashes.

I guess we just have to believe the experts but anything we are not happy about re new changes we go back again
