Needs urgent care: Its an eye emergency. The patient needs to see ophthalmologist ASAP. The symptom many floaters, flashes of light associated with partial peripheral visaul field defect or complete vision lost depends on severity. It needs immediate attention either laser or surgery. If it's taken care early the outcome is good.
