Sneezing, light flashes, floaters in left eye, dry eyes. Have seasonal allergies. Possible causes ?

Have bad seasonal allergies. Last night I sneeze very hard, later saw some light flashes. Flashes went away, but floaters are bad in left eye. Vision seems ok. No pain. I do also get opthamalic migranes and have dry eyes . last eye exam was 3 weeks ago and everthing looked fine. Both eyes had cataract surgery 4 years ago. Can I wait until Monday to see the eye dr. about the bad floaters? They are closed and I really don t want to wait around an emergency room for hours. I don t even know if they have an opthamalogist on duty.

Seeing floaters is common after middle age..
Its not an emergency situation..
In the meanwhile do not do any strenuous work..
But we need to examine the peripheral retina as you are seeing light flashes also..
Keep using medicines for allergy..
Take care..
