    Non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy is characterized by microaneurysms, dot-and-blot hemorrhages, hard exudates, cotton-wool spots, and macular edema. Morrow BS, Anthony T. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The bilateral perception of widespread flickering or "snow" on a television screen can point to various forms of drug-related side effects. Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg ;33 3 Sometimes, the image may flash and pulsate with the heartbeat and will remain for a few seconds as the light source continues to move [1].

    which are the most common causes of photopsia, cause a pull in vitreoretinal attachments, irritating the retina and causing it to discharge electrical impulses. These impulses are interpreted by the brain as flashes.In a small study, patients with hypoglycemia who were insulin-dependent diabetics reported bilateral photopsias that ceased when their glucose returned to normal levels.

    Causes of photopsia range from direct trauma to the eye itself to damage to the optic nerve or the brain to migraines.Since bilateral symptoms often point to the cerebral cortex or postchiasmal pathology, it is not surprising that ischemia or edema to the cerebral cortex including the visual cortex can cause bilateral symptoms of phosphenes.

    'Photopsia' describes the symptom of visual disturbances that are typically flash-like, sudden in onset and brief, and occurring without light.Foster Moore first described subjective vertical streaks of light in patients who had normal fundus exams and whom he thought had a rupture of a peripheral retinal cyst.

    Other focal neurologic symptoms preceding or accompanying the headache may include tingling, numbness, weakness, or impairment of consciousness.This condition has also been identified as a common initial symptom of punctate inner choroiditis PIC[6] a rare retinal autoimmune disease believed to be caused by the immune system mistakenly attacking and destroying the retina.

    Neuro-Visual Disorders · Optic Neuropathies. Damage to the optic nerves can cause pain and vision problems, most commonly in just one eye. · Optic Neuritis · Giant.Progression of the disease can lead to proliferative or non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy.

    Inflammatory causes of photopsias are due to outer retinal or photoreceptor irritation from focal infection or inflammation.
