Floaters and Spots
 

It is not uncommon for healthy eyes to notice spots or clouds that pass across your field of vision. These are called floaters and they may take a number of shapes and are most apparent when looking at a solid background. They are the shadow of small clots of gel or cells in the fluid that composes the inside of the eye. While they may be harmless and indicate no internal problems, floaters and spots may also indicate a larger health issue, such as a detached retina.  Typically, spots and floaters are harmless and will disappear over time. If they become more that just a nuisance and begin to compromise vision, other treatments are available.  Floaters of recent onset should be evaluated to determine if your floaters and spots are of the normal, harmless variety or if they are indicative of a more serious health problem.  Please contact our office for more information.

If you experience jagged lines, also known as heat waves, occurring in both eyes for up to 20 minutes, you may be experiencing a spasm of vessels in the brain, more commonly known as a migraine. Often these heat waves are followed by severe migraine headaches, but they can also occur without the headache and are called ophthalmic migraines.
