Help and frequently asked questions

I keep on seeing flashing lights, should I be concerned?


Flashes can occur for several reasons. If they appear to be patterned or zigzag it may be due to migraine, however most flashes occur together with floaters and are usually as a result of the gel within the eye rubbing or pulling on the retina. As with floaters it is wise to seek an eye examination from your optometrist if they appear to become more frequent or worsen.
