Medical Eye Floaters, Flashes and Seeing Spots in the Eye?

  1. Dec 10, 2011 #1
    The sudden appearance of a significant number of floaters, especially if they are accompanied by flashes of light in my eye for a few second.
    Does anyone know what is that?
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions

    There are lots of things that can cause floaters, some of them severe, some not.

    Most members of this site are not qualified to offer medical advice. Those who are would tell you to see a doctor.
