Does Anyone Get Flashing Lights In Their Peripheral Vision?

Does Anyone Get Flashing Lights In Their Peripheral Vision?

The light may not exactly flash but it moves along the side, front to back, of your peripheral vision in one of your eyes. Also, does anybody else get it when you change to light or darker settings? For example, If you walked from a brighter to a darker section of a room, or if a large piece of hair suddenly falls near your eyes and blocks light.
