What Are Eye Flashes and Eye Floaters?  

Eye floaters and flashes are common visual conditions that can seem alarming. Floaters manifest as tiny, moving specks or strands that appear to drift through your field of vision, and are often more noticeable against a bright background. Flashes, on the other hand, are like sudden flickers or streaks of light that momentarily dart across your visual field. While they can be harmless, occasionally they can be signs of more serious issues.

Symptoms of Eye Flashes and Eye Floaters 

Floaters are small, shadowy shapes that may appear to float or flit across your field of vision. Floaters can present themselves in your vision as:

  • Small black dots or transparent string-like shapes
  • Irregular, cobweb-like lines or rings
  • Small, dark, shadowy shapes that seem to drift away when you try to look at them directly
  • Flecks or globs that move or drift as you move your eyes

As for eye flashes, they resemble bursts or streaks of light that suddenly appear in your vision. These flashes can indicate the vitreous gel inside your eye pulling on the retina, and if you’re experiencing them, it’s critical to seek medical attention to prevent potential damage to your vision.
