Notify your Eye MD, ophthalmologist immediately if you
notice a sudden shower of floaters, new light flashes, a
veil or curtain obstructing your vision, or any other
change. The Eye MD, ophthalmologist, will dilate your pupils
with drops and examine the vitreous and retina inside the
eye with an ophthalmoscope. It is important to periodically
assess the vision of each eye. Many problems can be detected
early by simply comparing both eyes. To test your vision:

vision, noting any change

- Watch for floaters, flashes
- Note the duration and intensity of the symptoms
- Cover fellow eye and repeat.
Report any new symptoms or changes in vision to your
ophthalmologist, Eye MD.
