    Yep. After reading a long passage of white text on black background, I had an episode of something that pretty much fits the description of Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. If I recall correctly there were some kind of flickering in one of the sides of my sight. It went away after an hour or so, but the next time I went outside I noticed an abnorm amount of floaters (compared to what I had before).

    Fun fact: The tiny dots you sometimes see flashing around when looking at something very bright (like the sky) are white blood cells. You're able to see them because they're so large, and the vessels in your eyes are so thin that they fit only one at a time.

      Not so fun: A shower of red blood cells entering your vision due to a hemorrhage. That wasn't fun at all.
