When I am in a low light room and I blink my eyes I see a dark shadow that fades away when I leave my eyes open. It comes back and fades away if I blink over and over. I also see a small slight distorted spot in vision when I first wake up in the mornings. I just went to a ritina specialist two days ago and full had a full exam. He really checked my retina, the examination light nearly killed me, and he found nothing wrong. No drunen, and said the retina looks great. I also went to a ophthalmologist a month ago and did find a cataract in my right eye, but said my retina is in great condition. I told him what I was experiencing and he said it could be you are spending too much time on electronic devices and TV. I bought blueblocking glasses and my eyes feel better, but the shadows in central vision are still there. Also, I have blue colored string lights in my room and when I blink when they are on at night, I see a donut shape ring in my central vision. What the heck is going on. I am 48 years old. No history of eye problems in my family, except my mom had cataracts removed in her eyes in her late forties and a tear from coughing too hard repaired. Is this something part of the functionality of the eyes?

I do not know if I had a OCT scan. I have to look that up. I do not know what that is. I can see perfectly during the day. I do use reading glasses with 1.25 strength. I even forget I have something going on until the nighttime, blinking my eyes. If I never blink in a low lite room, I would never see it either. The weirdest thing is the smoke donut rings in my central vision in the blue light of my string lights in my room. I have stopped using them. Do not know if it causing any harm.
I see the same "donut" when blinking, but it's because I have the diagnosis "epiretinal membrane" which is pulling on the macula (I also have a small blind spot in the center). It would be strange if you had it though since specialists would most likely instantly see it in the cross-section scans (it looks and behaves almost exactly the same as CSR as mentioned above btw).
