Should I visit a doctor about seeing light flashes and shadows?
George A. Williams, MD, Ophthalmology, answered on behalf of American Academy of Ophthalmology's EyeSmartYou need a comprehensive examination by an ophthalmologist. Anytime a person is experiencing flashes of light and floaters, an eye examination is necessary. In fact, a baseline eye examination is important for anyone over the age of 40, even if they have no symptoms at all.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
