Floaters/FlashesTreatment

What Are Eye Floaters and Flashes?

This is a common question that an eye doctor from our practice will get all the time. Floaters and flashes can appear as small shapes, lighting, or tiny flashes of light. These are caused by everything from a normal part of the aging process to rubbing your eyes. 

Keep reading to learn more about how floaters can become a serious medical concern. 

Symptoms of Eye Floaters and Flashes

You’ll be able to tell our optometrist if you’re experiencing floaters or flashes easily. The symptoms can include white or gray specs in your field of vision, “microscopic” looking shapes, or flashes of light. There aren’t other associated symptoms as floaters are often a symptom themselves of other conditions. 

Are Floaters a Serious Eye Care Problem?

Our Las Vegas eye care is here to let you know that floaters aren't usually a sign of serious eye health problems. 

Floaters are mostly just a normal part of aging and something that can be visually distracting, but not always harmful. They are only a serious problem when they are associated with other health problems. 

If your floaters are associated with eye pain, swelling, or a sudden change in vision, you should get to our eye care practice right away. This could be a sign of a serious health issue such as retinal detachment. 

Floaters can also relate to chronic migraine headaches, stroke, or diabetes. Our practice can help you rule out common vision problems as a cause for your floaters.
