Flashes and floaters
Some normal, age-related changes in the eye can cause flashes and floaters, but it is crucial to rule out sight threatening conditions such as retinal tears or detachments.
Sudden vision changes
Could you see across the room with your right eye yesterday, but today everything is hazy? Vision blacking out for a few seconds at a time? These could be signs of something serious going on with your ocular health, or even your overall medical health.
