We talked about good floaters, which are the most common by far.
But bad floaters are the ones that are side effects of more serious eye problms.
These problems can include a major infection or inflammation in your eye, a retinal tear, or even a serious injury.
If you have suddenly noticed:
– a bunch of new floaters, – floaters along with flashes of light – floaters along with reduced vision -any injury to your eye
then come and see us as soon as possible.
Some problems that create flashes and floaters can be sight threatening, and need to be diagnosed and treated promptly to make sure you don’t permanently lose vision in tthat eye.
It is still possible that the condition isn’t too serious, but it’s better to check and be sure than risk a bad outcome.
If you have these symptoms overnight or out of hours, feel free to contact me vis the contact form on the site and I will get back to you promptly with options.
