• Wavy Light Seen in Peripheral Vision


    Question:

    I see a wavy light in the peripheral vision of my right eye. What's causing this?


    Answer:

    Wavy lights in the periphery of your vision can arise for a multitude of reasons. Sometimes a wavy light can arise from something as benign as a migraine, but I'd be also concerned about a more serious etiology such as a retinal tear or detachment. You should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist as soon as possible.
