Every night of every day, people everywhere retreat to their beds to sleep, and oftentimes to dream. Many of us are not aware however, that the many levels of consciousness we undergo during the stages of sleep offer a link between our conscious mind and its manifested dream world; perhaps even the possibility of another realm of cognition altogether. Hypnagogia, the deeply relaxed state of consciousness that occurs shortly prior to falling asleep, has been recognized for hundreds of years as a source of creative thought and intuition by a long list of distinguished philosophers, artists, and scientists, names of which include Aristotle and Albert Einstein (1).
Research into hypnagogia is now shedding light on long-sought-for explanations of psychic abilities and creative intuition obtained outside direct sensory processes by revealing the possibility that our brain may have the ability to tap into other states of consciousness (6). The phenomenon of the hypnagogic hallucinations which occur in this period are characterized by a slideshow of highly condensed, discontinuous, and bizarre imagery of faces, figures, animals, print and writing. Also accompanying this is often hearing one’s name being whispered, hearing music, and undergoing temporary physical paralysis (4, 7).
These visual, auditory, and physical stimuli, have been known to cultivate intuition, bring flashes of inspiration, and offer creative insight to those who experience them (1).

Check and make sure that your eyes arent dry..yeah silly but people dont normally pay attention ;another medical type cause is small particles getting behind the eyes and not being washed out by tears as they should hence the dry eye thingy.
Other than that alot of people will move quickly to do a bunch of stuff right before bed this can also cause nerves in the backs of the eyes to fire off in this manner due to the sudden rush then slow down in the blood flow to the area...then theres the other one hehe
Alot of us who meditate intentionally use these lights that pop up when we are meditating to help us work out things we are focusing on. Some people who are capable of telekenisis have this constantly even with the eyes open at times.
If you arent working on some sort of awakening type of thing I would lean towards the fact that you are getting alot of particles building up on or behing the eye...
