Vitreous detachment: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I've been experiencing eye floaters for 5 or 6 years. But lately I've been experiencing more flashes of light (quick strips of light) and flickering
Can anyone explain me how u see flashes of lights i only see eye floaters not flashes of light how it can be visible?Wat they look like?
Mostly older folks: Most flashes of light originating within the eye are due to the semi-fluid vitreous fluid jiggling the underlying retina. The retina has no nerves of pain, motion, pressure, etc. It can only register a light signal and will do so under this stimulus. It appears usually as a streak of light peripherally. Since this can also occur with retinal detachment, it is useful to see an ophthalmologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
