Eye issues after aortic surgery

I have had eye issues after emergency surgery for my aorta dissection (3 repairs). I get flashing lights at the edge of both eyes. My cardiac MD and surgeon don’t seem concerned either. I went to an ophthalmologist says it’s dry eye and BP related. He suggested natural eye drops. That has seems to have lessened them. Possibly from trauma. 🤷‍♀️ Best wishes!

Thank you for replying
Seems like it’s more common then we know.
It’s very concerning when it happens. My uncontrollable eye movements are what really scare me. My MRI/MRA is Tuesday. If they don’t find anything I will just deal with it. It’s so comforting to hear from others with some of the same issues. 😌
