How are white spots in vision treated ?

My daughter(age 10) just mentioned she cannot see for a couple of seconds because of some white spots in her vision . I asked her further questions and she says she gets some pain in back of head towards the neck and the white spots are bright. It happens frequently like almost every day. She wears glasses for near signtedness (+1) and astigmatism(1.25). Her eye pressure is also borderline high despite adjusting it to corneal thickness (21-22). Both pain and white spots incident occur together and lasts only a couple of seconds. It sounds very scary. Should I rush her to an ophthalmologist or general practitioner? Or is it normal?
