Flashes of light and floaters


Floaters are small specks that move in and out of your field of vision. They are typically more noticeable when looking at a plain background, such as a white wall. Floaters are tiny clumps of cells or materials that are inside the clear, gel-like fluid that fills the inside of your eye. When this gel pulls on the retina, a person may see flashing lights or lightning streaks - these are flashes.
