Your visual disturbances are likely to be due to 'floaters'.
Eye floaters are a common enough phenomenon, and they become more frequent with age. They occur as a result of degenerative changes in the vitreous of the eye, the jelly like material that fills your eyeball. They will usually not require any treatment, although sometimes surgery may be done in very rare cases if they become too big and interfere with vision. Floaters are usually accompanied by flashes of light.
Although usually harmless, they may occasionally be a sign of retinal detachment. You should consult an ophthalmologist when you see floaters for the first time, when they are accompanied by bright lights or if they increase suddenly.
So you should consult an eye specialist for this, just to be on the safe side.
Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.
