Flashes and Floaters

What are Flashes and Floaters?

Flashes and Floaters can cause one to see small, floating spots or bright flashes of light. They are caused by age-related changes in the vitreous that fills the back of the eye.

  • The vitreous usually begins to thin between the ages of 40 to 60.
  • Typical symptoms include seeing small floating spots, persistent flashing lights, or veils blocking your vision.
  • Retinal tear or detachment can be a leading cause of flashes and floaters.
  • Our goal is to maximize your vision and improve your quality of life.
