Suggest remedy for eye floaters

Two days ago, I started seeing bright flashes of light out the side vision of my left eye. This lasted an entire day. The bright flashes have stopped but I now see dark black squiggly lines that appear to float around, change shape, and often obstruct my vision. No previous problems

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Welcome to Health care magic.

I reviewed your history.
It seems from the history that you are having sudden onset of flashes and floaters.
This requires evaluation by indirect ophthalmoscopy to look for posterior segment conditions like vitreous degenerations, posterior vitreous detachment, retinal tears, retinal thinning and other retinal degenerations.
This requires evaluation to find out the underlying cause and its management accordingly.

Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Hope this is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for further questions.

Thank you
With regards
