Flashes of light are caused by tension between the vitreous gel in the eye and the retina. As the gel pulls on the retina, the retina is stimulated, sending signals to the brain that are interpreted as flashes of light.
Farsightedness (Hyperopia) is the result of the visual image being focused behind the retina rather than directly on it. It may be caused by the eyeball being too small or the focusing power being too weak.
