Patient

Q: I got punched in the eye 5 days ago and now I keep getting white flashes in the corner of my right eye

Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

I think that you have an injury to the eye. Injury to the eye can cause irritation to the nerve or damage to the retina. This damage causes the problems with vision and the flickering vision.

What you need to do is to get yourself examined by a Doctor to check your eyes. If the eyes are normal, then you are fine. But I suspect you have some damage which may or may not need surgery.

Hope this helps you. Wish you a speedy recovery.
