The Cause Of The Emergence Of Floaters Suddenly?
Floaters are shadows that look like hovers that interfere with vision. If the amount is small generally does not interfere with the field of view, it usually appears more clearly when looking at a bright and plain color. Floaters will move when we move the eyeball. Floaters are material found in vitreous (jelly-like parts that fill the inside of the eyeball), which is formed due to aging, tears in the retina, or inflammation in the back of the eye.
Complaints of floaters that suddenly multiply to cover the view and accompanied by the sensation of seeing flashes of light are a sign of danger of disturbance in the retina (most often is retinal detachment) which greatly threatens visual function. In the case of your mother you should immediately consult an ophthalmologist. Complaints of migraine headaches can provide visual aura in the form of flashes and black spots, but in migraine visual / visual complaints are only settled for 15-30 minutes and then gradually disappear. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
