Potential problem with my eyes?
I was in my room at night with all the lights off, and there was this tiny light coming from my laptop's power button.
The light faintly projected onto the ceiling, but I noticed I was only able to see it (on the ceiling) when I was not looking directly at it, so I was able to see it out of the corner of my eye, but not when looking at it directly. It was like this for about 3 minutes, and then my eyes maybe adjusted, and I was able to see it in the center of my vision too.
I was wondering if this could be an indication of anything, or if it's nothing to worry about?
I also want to add that I do use the computer a lot throughout the day.

Your peripheral retina is better with dim light than your central retina is. The links provide a more complete explanation. This is commonly known in astronomy.Source(s): https://www.reddit.com/r/explainlikeimfive/comment... http://curious.astro.cornell.edu/physics/81-the-un...
