Why can I see images when I close my eyes?
Phosphenes are the moving visual sensations of stars and patterns we see when we close our eyes.
They are thought to be caused by the inherent electrical charges the retina produces even when it is in its “resting state” and not taking in a ton of information and light like it does when our eyes are open.
Why do I see faces when my eyes are closed?
This is perfectly normal, and probably occurs when you see these faces behind your eyelids. While many people begin to experience their third eye awakening when they’re in a state of relaxation (i.e., meditation or right before bed), you may start to experience clairvoyance in your everyday life.
Can you see things when you close your eyes?
The visual field becomes a sort of active space. A side component of this is the ability to feel motion when the eyes are closed. In this state it is possible to see things that appear to be physical objects in the open-eye physical world, but that aren’t really there.
Are flashes in the eye dangerous?
Flashes are sparks or strands of light that flicker across the visual field. Both are usually harmless. But they can be a warning sign of trouble in the eye, especially when they suddenly appear or become more plentiful.
