Question

 

 

Hi,

For over 2 and a half weeks now. I've been getting flashing specks of light and dark floaters appearing in my vision, these started suddenly and now more recently, my distance vision has been blurry and i get occasional double vision.

Thanks

Answer

Thanks for your Question

I believe that you have to visit an eye doctor as soon as possible. Sudden eye floaters with flashes of lights that are increasing with time and accompanied by blurred vision should be examined by an ophthalmologist to rule out retinal tear or retinal detachment.
