I have noticed small flashes of light occuring seemingly around the outer edges of both my eyes. This happens almost every morning when I first wake up, and do not seem to occur at other times. This lasts for about 30-60 seconds.I had cataract surgery about 2 1/2 years ago. Eyes were examined about 2 months ago, and Dr. noticed a small amount of "residue" on the lens of my right eye. He said this could be removed by laser, but it is barely affecting my vision. I have noticed a few more "floaters" and have had some difficulty in focusing when reading from time to time. This has only been happening over the past 2-3 weeks.Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. I am a 68-yr. old male.
