Welcome to Just Answer:

In general, the vitamin supplements that improve eye health include Ocuvite Plus, I-caps or PreserVision. These vitamin supplements contain ingredients that has been demonstrated to reduce worsening of age-related macular degeneration, but has not been specifically studies in flashes which is only a symptom seen in several eye diseases. It is likely that improving eye health with these would reduce the risk of eye diseases that could lead to flashes.
