It seems that you have gone offline. Let me address your issue and if you have further questions after you read my post you can ask me when you come back.
You are likely experiencing a PVD or posterior vitreous
detachment, a common event that happens in many people.
You have a thick gel material in the middle of your eyes called the vitreous. Over time as it liquefies, this gel material collapses on itself, forms little clumps that you can see as dots, lines or bugs. As these clumps form the vitreous pulls away from the wall of the eye. In the process it can stimulate the retina -- causing the flashes that you may see.
It is recommended that you see your ophthalmologist
to look at the retina to make sure there are no problems such as a retinal hole or tear. In most cases, there are no problems, but this exam is precautionary and allows for preventative treatment of any lesions that are found.
If you notice a sudden increase in floaters, flashes of light (like a lightning storm), or a shadow/veil in the periphery of your vision, this can be worrisome for a retinal detachment
. You would need to contact your ophthalmologist promptly in that case.
In your case, I am concerned about your statement that you suddenly noticed "millions of black dots" and now you are seeing a "film" in your visual field.
I am concerned that you may have bleed inside your eye (the black dots) and that you may be in the process of having your retina detach (the film you are seeing)
This is an ocular emergency and requires an examination by an ophthalmologist ASAP. A visit to the ER will be of very little value unless they have an eye surgeon on call who can meet you at the ER or at her nearby office. I'd call the ER about this availability of a ophthalmologist before going in.
Does this make sense to you?
