It's usually completely harmless, but yes -- do check in with your primary health provider. I've had a few myself over the years, and they go away after a week or two.

Yes I've had a couple the past few years also, In fact it may have happened after i sneezed yesterday afternoon, after going outside in bright sunlight without my sunglasses on. That and allergies kicking in this time of year stinking Ohio weather, experience all four seasons in one day sometimes, lol.

Not a physician, just my personal experience...

I recently (Dec 18/Jan 19) experienced a detached retina. Since I hadn't had any serious blows to the head (as far as I know & can remember ) my best guess for the cause was a series of seriously hard coughs about a week or so before Christmas.

After that episode, I started seeing a 'lightning flash' at the left edge of my vision in my left eye. I suddenly had a lot of extra 'floaters', then started seeing a dark spot at the right edge of my vision in my left eye. Since I've had floaters for years, I wasn't extremely concerned, but thinking about that dark spot started to bother me.

I went to my regular eye doctor who sent me to an ophthalmology specialist the same day. Turns out I could have permanently lost the vision in my left eye if I had let it go for a couple more weeks.

I've since had corrective surgery, been through recovery and am now waiting for the expected cataract to form. Things should be just fine from here on out.

Bottom line, be safe & get your eyes checked out ASAP.

If this is related to your piping, your pipes are way, way too hard...
