I already have 1 floater but just now started seeing 3-4 black

I already have 1 floater but just now started seeing 3-4 black spots. Are these floaters too or more serious?



Do they float around like the others? Do you have any flashing lights? How is your vision?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I can see fine (with glasses) and my vision does not seem to have changed. The black spots moved slowly, more vertical than my floater which moves horizontally primarily. I do not see any flashing lights. I saw the black spots when I went outside (still partial daylight here) but do not see them inside in artifical light.



It sounds like more floaters. It wouldn't hurt to get it checked out at some point (no urgency), especially if you see a bunch more or flashing lights or shadows coming across your vision.


Hope this helps and thank you.
