    I am a healthcare professional
    I am a nurse practitioner (currently doing pre med)

    Based on the limited info that you have given it could be a couple things

    1) could be nothing. just your body's normal response to position change

    2) orthostatic hypotension
    -basically when you quickly change position your body has difficulty compenstating and your brain does not get enough Oxygen. Consequently, you can get a quick spell of symptoms similar to what you describe.
    -from your accounts you are young healthy individual + keep well hydrated, so this is less likely

    3) some sort of non vision threathen optho(eye) problem
    -could be early signs of vitrious humor detactment. Totally treatable and not really anything to be worried about (as long as you get treated)

    It is most likely NOT

    -a migraine (as it does not last and you do not actually really describe any typical, or atypical migraine like symptoms)

    -retinal detachment (if your retina had truely detached, or was in danger of detaching, you would notice a SHARP decrease in your vision, and by now you would most likely be blind. Typically retinal detachment is from trauma and symptoms, such as blindness, happen right away)

    I would recommend
    -that you get a check up from your GP (family doctor)
    -and that you get your eyes checked by an optometrist

    let us know how it goes

    I used to have this issue when was dehydrated, heat exhaustion or low on sugar energy.
