Streaking Light in Peripheral Vision

  1. I had a cataract surgery on my right eye a month ago and three days
    ago I noticed a intermittent streaking light on the lower left
    quadrant on the operated eye. It started as a greenish light the
    first morning it appeared and progressed as a bright white light. It
    is not a split second flashing white light but rather like a long
    tadpole with a big round head that shoots up and down, mostly upwards,
    and lasts about a second or two. The frequency is erratic and
    unpredictable but occurs an average of 8 to 12 times a day. There's no
    increase in floaters and neither a change in visual acuity but the
    thing bugs the hell out of me and my appointment with my eye surgeon
    doesn't happen until the day after New Year and in the meantime his
    office is closed for the holidays. What do you think it is? Should I
    go to a hospital for emergency treatment?
