Leonard Kirsch MD of the Eye Institute of West Florida gave a very informative lecture on Flashes & Floaters. Small specks or clouds moving in your field of vision are called floaters. They are caused by tiny pieces of tissue in the eye. When light hits these pieces of tissue, it creates shadows on the retina that appear to float across your field of vision . It may appear that these specks are on the front surface of your eye, but they are actually inside the eye. In most cases, flashes and floaters are no cause for alarm and no treatment is necessary; however, a sudden increase in floaters may indicate a problem and an eye examination is recommended if this occurs. You can reach Dr. Leonard S Kirsch at 727-478-1299 or visit for a consultation.
