Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly
Well flashes of light are common with wet macular degeneration rather then dry. Dry ARMD can precede wet ARMD. Flashes / floaters of new onset or increasing frequency might signify retinal tear or detachment which could be potentially blinding.
I would recommend her an urgent visit to her eye doctor to have a look into her eyes for possible changes i mentioned.
Yes but she still needs to get an opinion so as to rule out something as sinister as a retinal detachment. Esp if she is now beginning to complain more frequently, meaning flashes bother her more often now.
hope it answered your query.
