What are the black objects my father sees in his eyes ?

Hi Dr, My 65 yr old Dad complains of seeing black object with his right eye. This is in a ddition to strong headache . We consulted a local physician who tested him optically and recommended glasses. However, the situation has not improved rather the black object(shadow) is being observed in the left eye. I was a bit alarmed with his level of concern and had to take him to a neurologist given the fact that he is hypertensive. Further tests were done including a brain BEG.We were told all was well with prescriptions made. The situation is still the same. Kindly give your expert advice.

Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi..., the causes for the shadows in the front of the eyes are vitreous hemorrhage,
retinal detachment, scotoma and other conditions.., hence you need to get clinically examined and treated by an ophthalmologist... no to neglect the condition...
Hope I have answered your question..
