Floaters are the small "cobwebs" or specks that move and float in your field of vision.
- If you experience a sudden onset of symptoms, sometimes accompanied by lightening-like flashes of light, CALL US IMMEDIATELY. This can be an early indication of retinal detachment, a vision-threatening condition.
- Severe symptoms can indicate that the vitreous gel of the eye is tugging on the light-sensitive tissue on the interior, known as the retina, which can cause the retina to tear or detach. Both are vision-threatening conditions.
- Early detection is the best way to save vision in the affected eye(s)
The occasional fleeting floater that appears as a spot or strand and disappears after a few seconds is normal. However, if these symptoms are persisting or if you live with diabetes or other medical conditions that affect your vision health, we have the intervention you need.

If you've noticed flashes or floaters in your field of vision, this may be an important early-warning sign of a more serious vision disorder. In some cases, they can indicate a potentially vision-threatening condition.
Everyone will experience some normal floaters - however, if you're over the age of 60, floaters will increase as a normal part of aging as the jelly-like fliud inside of the eyeball, known as the vitreous gel, changes as part of the normal aging process.
Don't wait - if you have any question as to whether your flashes and floaters are serious, we're here for you with expert diagnosis and the best available treatment.
