Light Flashes may be seen in conjunction with floaters, or may occur separately. Unlike floaters, light flashes (photopsias) are typically perceived in subdued lighting or even total darkness. Photopsias range from minimal light twinkles to flashes that are bright enough to suggest a neon sign or camera flash.
The flashes can also be a sign of retinal problems - you might want to see an eye doctor just as a precaution wether the flashes are deemed paranormal or religious experiences.
