See a physician soon: Hi, Any type of visual disturbance gives us cause for concern. Usually it is a sign of another problem such as hypertension, diabetes etc. Most recently, I had a patient with similar symptoms that had an ocular migraine. Consulting a physician (internist) would be wise also in addition to the information that you have gotten from your ophthalmologist.

Floater: It sounds like a floater but since you had a thorough exam by your ophthalmologist, there is nothing to worry about and this would be regarded as just a nuisance but nothing serious. However if more appear reexamination is advisable.
