I'm 26 and have myopia on both eyes since childhood (left eye is 250 and right eye is 350. I don't know if this are the correct values used to indicate the eye/s myopic level.). My last visit to an ophthalmologist was 5 years ago.
I suddenly noticed a very small flash of light in my vision (only for a split second) when I moved my eyes or head fast. This symptom started last week.
Also, when I usually wake up in the morning I have symptoms of seeing vibrations on certain objects when I stare at it (usually objects with vertical lines). It usually goes away as the day goes by. I already had this problem last year and thinking that it might be just eye strain.
I read that nearsighted people have a greater chance to have eye complications like retinal detachment, cataracts, and glaucoma.
I don't exercise much except just a stepper at home for 10 - 30 minutes everyday. I also have been smoking for 5 years and work as a web designer (that's 8 hours in front of the computer).
Hope somebody in this forum can shed some light into what I am experiencing, because its starting to scare me.
