For those who have been wondering. The ophthalmologist said that it is only vitreous separation at this phase. As small chunks fall from the gel area into the liquid area of the age, commonly between the ages of 55-70, you can get little tugs on the retina, causing the lightning flashes. I could get retina tears if a large chunk were to fall suddenly.
So, I am grateful for all of the prayers. If I have no trauma for the next month, I may have dodged a bullet. Even then, retina repair is common and not much of a problem these days.
The doctor said he gets vitreous separation about three times a day, but it is better to be safe.
Yet, I think God had something to do with it.
