Retina Associates of Tucson, Arizona, accepts patients with both routine and complex retinal issues. For patients with flashes and floaters in their vision, ophthalmologist Dr. Cameron Javid, who is a retina specialist, and his colleagues at Retina Associates provide patient education as well as assessment and treatment options.
As people age, they often report seeing what are colloquially known as flashes and floaters. The former, as the name indicates, consists of streaks or flashes of light with no apparent external cause, while the latter is best described as squiggles or dots that appear to hover in the air but are not present outside the body. These phenomena affect approximately 70 percent of adults by the age of 70. People mace have floaters when they are young but between the age of 45-65 a sudden release of the vitreous occurs and new floaters are present requiring a retinal exam.
