Flashes & Floaters
Are Your Eye Flashes & Eye Floaters Normal?
What Are Eye Flashes & Floaters?
While these objects look like they are in front of your eye, they are actually floating inside it. What you see are the shadows they cast on the retina, the layer of cells lining the back of the eye that senses light and allows you to see. Floaters can appear as different shapes, such as little dots, circles, lines, clouds, or cobwebs.
Additional Retina Services
A healthy, intact retina is key to clear vision. Unfortunately, many people suffer from retinal diseases and don’t even realize it. Our ophthalmologist at Rock Hill Eye Center will examine your eyes and watch for any signs of these problems.
Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition that occurs in people with diabetes. This retinal disease affects the blood vessels in the eye and can cause permanent vision loss. If you have diabetes, be aware of this condition and be sure to visit an ophthalmologist for care.
Age Related Degeneration
Macular degeneration is a breakdown of the part of your retina that controls your central vision. The most common cause of this retinal disease is aging. Learn about the two major types of macular degeneration and why seeing an ophthalmologist is so important.
Retinal Tear / Detachment
Not all eye conditions require immediate treatment—but a torn or detached retina does. If you’ve suffered a blow to the eye, visit an ophthalmologist as quickly as possible for an exam. It could save your vision.
