    I have it at the moment and it's hard to describe. I can see
    everything in focus, especially what I'm looking directly at & I can
    see colours normally but it's like flashing white & blurring around the
    periphery, almost like looking through water.

    I get up early in the morning and usually experience it then, or after
    gym or other intense exercise.

    If I close my eyes everything is still and there are no floaters.

    I'm male, 38 and the only one in my family who doesn't need glasses.

    It would seem to be some type of disturbance of blood flow to the eyes.

    In both eyes. It usually goes after a couple of hours but I'm
    concerned it could be something I should get checked.

    Thank you for your replies!

    Ah! Sorry for the misunderstanding. I would say it occurs strongly on
    the outside of the midline. Maybe, possibly, very slightly on the
    medial side.

    That's very interesting. There is a history of megraine in my family
    but I always associated it with headaches and because I don't get those
    too often I never considered it.

    I'll go see the doc anyway just for peace of mind!

    Thanks again for the replies!
