Diabetic eye disease: Blurred vision, trouble focusing, floaters, blind spots. See a retinal specialist as this disease can be treated and may result in permanent vision loss without treatment

Retinal flash : This is likely vitreous traction , a form of floaters , tugging on the retina. You should consult a retina specialist to rule out torn, detached retina or other serious problem
A 37-year-old male asked:

Retinal heme: That depends entirely on the nature of the hem. If an ongoing source of bleeding (micoameurysm or neovasc) it could not resolve or worsen. If it is a small incidental hemorrhage it could resolve in weeks. Consult a retinal specialist for hemorrhage in the retina as some can be signs of serious vision threatening pathology
