I visited Dr Kerner every 6 months for 4 years. At least 2 years ago I began having light flashes in one eye which I reported to Dr Kerner because it can indicate a detaching retina. She poo-pooed it and said I didn't need treatment. I changed to a Dr who is head of Ophthalmology at Sentara and teaches at EVMS. He said he could see that I had a retinal tear causing the light flashes and that I needed laser surgery immediately to prevent a detached retina. Had laser surgery and no more flashes!
