The first step for treatment of floaters or flashes is a comprehensive eye exam, which often reveals the source of the issue. Floaters and flashes are sometimes a symptom of vitreous collapse, a serious condition.
If the exam indicates the overall health of the eye is sound, no other treatment is necessary. If there’s a potential problem, the eye may need examination periodically to see if there have been any changes in the vitreous or retina. If a problem is identified, the patient may need to consult a retina specialist.
