What does idiom "Before one īs eyes" exactly mean?


What does idiom "Before one īs eyes" exactly mean?
Please tell me if this idiom could mean that something is happening "very quickly" or that something happens right in front of sb is the only possible meaning?

Yes,  it is happening right in front of you.

An example would be someone in danger thinking they are about to die:
His life flashed before his eyes.
