what is your age? when did this start? is it one eye or both? do you have any medical problems?
most often when one eye sees the dots, it is an issue in the eye. As in your case, I suspect something is happening in the area of the occipital cortex or something near the pituitary causing optic nerve pressure. I think I would order a CT or MRI to evaluate those regions, and I pretty sure the neuro-ophthalmologist will do this after listening to your symptoms. If you have started a new medicine recently, this could be an issue as well, I wish you well, Dr. Stevens
