General vision query

Hello . Before I start just let me start by giving a brief history . I've had a dilated eye exam in December which was clear . After that I've had a couple of normal undilated eye exams which were also normal . My number is also stable . No vision problems either But one thing which really confuses me is that I occasionally get a very small black spot in my vision it's yransoent it comes and in a second vanishes . This is a floater or a natural visual phenomenon ? Thanks :)

Contact lens use

Red dot appears in corner of eye

I woke up 2 days ago with a small red dot on the corner of the inside of my eye. It doesn’t hurt but I’ve noticed after 2 days it’s beginning to widen and stretch out. It’s getting bigger. My eye hurts a little when I’m looking at my screen and at night. What could it be and what should I do?

Funduscopy required?

Hi . I had gone to the eye doctor to get my prescription updated . Now my number has decreased but I've been told to use the same prescription I am now . So stable number . However the doctors didn't do a funduscopy . The one where they look at the eyes with a torch. Perhaps they felt like it wasn't needed ? Should I go back and request them to do a general un dilated eye check up?
