Flashing lights when closing eyes
Favorited (undo)
68% Normal

Some nights when I'm in bed, I'll close my eyes to try and sleep, and I'll suddenly see what looks like a flashing light.

I open my eyes again to see if it's something in the room but it stops..and comes back upon closing my eyes again.

It's kind of like looking at a dim strobe light.

When it does happen, I see it straight away, it doesn't only come on after I've been lying there a while.

Anybody else experience this?
Could it mean anything?

When it's really dark your eyes might do that. But if you have a permanent spot of bright colors you might want to get it checked.

Sometimes the CIA gets the frequency wrong, and your might notice their monitoring activity.
Or it could be nothing.
Or it could be a problem with your retinas, so have it checked out -- the sooner the better.

Want to see something crazy? When you're ready for bed and the lights are out rub your eyelids with your hands for a few seconds then...enjoy the show :)

I've never heard of this before, but go and get it checked out by your / a doctor, or search the internet to see if you can find any info about your problem

I think that's normal, when I was younger i used to think the same thing. Especially if you are pressing on your eyes for around 30 seconds, then it looks weird. But otherwise, i think it is just your brain.

I always get that. I had it all my life so far. The optition just said I was short sighted.

That is nothing every one has it its call REM (Rapid Eye Movement)thats when you've been in the light to long and suddenly you're in a dark room with you're eyes closed. to stop it turn on a dim light for about 2min that should stop it. it mostly happens if you don't let you're eyes adjust to low light in time.
