I don't have floaters or flashes per se, but occasionallly I get a small irregular shaped "pocket" with a kaleidoscopic effect perimeter to it. It gradually expands (in both eyes, never singularly) until it covers the bulk of my vision, after a few minutes (5-10) it disappears. I've noticed over some 25-30 years that it seems to get more frequent (several times a day) particularly when I drink a lot of coffee. Sometimes it can disappear for several weeks or even months.I don't suffer from migraines. Since it has not inhibited me from carrying out my work or effected my ability to focus when driving, I've not been too concerned, it being just an inconvenience. I have mentioned it several times to my GP who usually suggests giving up something to see if that works. Being nearly 68 I've decided not to take up bungee jumping or pole vaulting in case the condition gets worse. Joking aside, I would like to find out what it is symptomatic of, and whether it can be treated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
