I started seeing halos around the light then ghost image and three months ago, I started seeing photo afterimage. I am really scared of this. Please help me to cure this.

Welcome to icliniq.com.
Floaters, photo after-images, ghost images are usually seen in disorders of the retina. Halos are indicative of corneal edema due to various reasons. There are a lot of diseases which can cause such a picture. At the same time, if you only experience these problems once in a while and have no problems with vision, you could actually have no treatable problems. The best and only way to confirm it for sure would be to visit an ophthalmologist.
I would recommend an urgent visit in case you have pain, a sudden drop in vision, part of the image you see cannot be visualized or redness, watering, discharge from the eyes. In case you do not have any of the above, I would say a non-urgent visit would suffice.
