FLOATERS

Many people complain of seeing small spots or floaters in front of their eyes. They can be noticed at any age but seem to become more numerous in later life. Often described as 'Strings of pearls' or 'Cobwebs' of different shapes and sizes, they are occasionally accompanied by flashes of light.

Flashes are usually a sign of electrical activity from the retina or the brain.

Most spots are normal, but they can indicate a more serious problem. If you notice a sudden shower of dots in one, you should make an urgent appointment with your optometrist for an eye examination to determine the cause. The optometrist will dilate your pupils, so if you are a driver, make sure somebody else drives you home. If you are a contact lens wearer, take your glasses along too.
