hi, ive had a circle of spots floating in front of my left eye for about four days, and it's driving me mad, and i am very worried, i rang my neath branch but they cant see me until may 26th, and the woman told me to go to the other opiticians in the neath town, i feel let down as i am a good customer i had my eyes tested last nov and spent four hundred quid on glasses i also buy contacts, but my main concern is my eye,the spot's are
floating all the time ,my eye sight is fine it's not blurred have'nt got a headache, when i first noticed the start i had a few flashes and then the spots, but still worrying, what do you suggest, thanks sandra

You did the right thing by trying to see an Optician and I think you need to see someone sooner than 26th (if nothing else but to reassure yourself). It sounds as though you have developed floaters which should always be promptly checked out just in case but remember are often nothing to worry about.
