In brief: Exam soon
This could be symptoms of a retinal detachment, which could lead to loss of vision.
See an ophthalmologist soon.

In brief: See your eye doc
New flashes and floaters can be a sign of a retinal detachment.
If you notice them once and they go away it's probably no big deal. If they persist or you have spiderwebs, curtains or veils over your vision, or any vision loss at all, you need to see an eye doctor.
