What causes black spots in the field of vision?

My name is David Pepe, age 62. Recently, I have experienced small little black dots in my vision field, shadows are occuring, & I am getting steaks of light in my right eye, right hand corner. My family history is filled with heart disease, stroke, & heart attack with my Grandmother, Aunts, & Uncle on my Mothers side. Please contact me at your earliest convenience, as my belief is to get it checked out immediately. Regards, David 801.726.2813

HI,

* As per my clinical experience, the black spots in the field of vision may be of concern with issues of macular degeneration or retinal scarring issues in some cases.

* A detailed ophthalmologic examination is needed with ultrasound examination for getting all parameters evaluated and treat accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel
