I had something similar sounding. My optometrist saw nothing unusual, but my opthamologist did. I had psuedotumor cerebri, caused in my case by stress and sudden weight gain. Resolved itself. My only symptom was flashing lights. Mine were especially noticeable when going from a dim to bright (or vice versa) enviroment.
I would get a second opinion, most especially if you saw an optometrist. I waited months before going in, and my vision remains unaffected. But you don't want to mess with your eyes!
I saw flashing in the corner of my vision and it turned out to be a retinal tear which needs immediate attention. Mine unfortunately went on to become a detached retina which needs surgery pretty quickly to prevent blindness. I would recommend you see a retina specialist as they have the skill and equipment to detect detachments. This is considered and emergency (if it is a tear or detachment)
