It is so weird and nobody knows exactly what it is caused by?? In short, I have a constant appears like a "fireworks" in my vision. I notice all the time, especially when I am outside in the light or a lighted room. The only time I can't see them, is when I am in a setting inside, not outside. Just not sure, but is really annoying. I thought maybe I have hiv, but I have contiunally tested negative, so not sure, but it seemed to all start after I had possible exposure, and after I had a bad intial sickness, but contiually test negative for hiv..This may not have anything to do with it, just giving background. Just wondering if anybody experiences this or is it just me?? Thanks I am scared though..
I have asked my medical doctor and they are not sure and I have also asked the doctor who checks vision for my contacts and glasses update. I am not sure what he is called, as far as his title, but he works for like a vision world, america's best, sear's optical, something like that. He didn't know either, so what else do I do???
Thanks..I do have a seizure disorder but....He is not sure what it is..I am so scared that it has to do with hiv, but I have tested negative to that 12 times at least, but I have had symptoms that hiv people have. I don't get it??
My mother and I both experience this. I have learned to enjoy the show. It only happens in bright white rooms and does burn out after a minute or so. There are brown shooting stars in the peripheral vision.
I have the exact same thing. It doesn''t happen to me all the time. Just once in awhile. But it is scary. I have been to opthamologist before but when they do the full tests on me they say that I am completely normal. They only thing I have is rare genetic astigmatism which does no harm accept for my semi poor depth perception. Do you have an astigmatism? Maybe this is the key????
I have experienced something similar except I would consider whatever it is as having a kaleidescope overlaying my vision. It's not just annoying, it's scary. It seems to be triggered by bright light and luckily only lasts for 15-20 minutes. Sure wish somebody knew what the heck it is!
I am 44. Starting around age 21, I got peripheral vision "fireworks", only like dark fireworks on normal background. Not lit-up, but appearing to go off anyhow. I also got zillions of floaters around the same time. Ten years later, around age 30, I started to see "wormies" when looking at light backgrounds (sky, snow). The only controls I have found are eyewash for the floaties and get enough rest and peace to reduce the fireworks. The wormies, no solution yet. Doctors don't like to discuss any of these things, probably because they can't fix them. I learned a long time ago that the less I said, the less they would look at me like I were a fruitloop. I have suffered in total silence about these 3 ailments for over 20 years. But, now, because of your sharing and honesty, I finally know my vision is somewhat normal and I am not alone in my situation. Thank you for that!
i am 52. It happened today for the 2nd time in 3 years. I would describe it a very pretty, white sparkles swimming in my field of vision and also leaving a white trail as the sparkles swim around. It lasted a good 10-12 seconds each time. 1st in a classroom just looking around and the 2nd time in the shower looking at the wall.
The white show might be related to blood pressure, which can go down in the shower or up in a classroom etcetera. The dark fireworks on the peripheral I still haven't figured out, although they are worse when my blood pressure is high.
