Flashes and Floaters
Floaters are an extremely common and harmless occurrence, observed particularly against a bright background, as little black specs or spots that seem to float around within your visual field.
Flashes refer to the occasional flashes of light observed in the far periphery or corner of your vision, most often on extreme gaze.
Neither are of any great significance unless they occur in very large and increased numbers. If this is the case, they could be the sign of a retinal detachment, and you are advised to seek urgent advice.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned, please make an appointment with the optical expert at your nearest Vision Express store.
