White spots when blinking
Software Engineer with work pressure by profession. Around 4 months ago, observed some thing pulsating white arc at the both corner of eyes near nose and then headaches (not all time). Last time got also camera like white flashes in eyes. Doctor gave amitriptyline, and B12 tablets, thoese were gone. After that I got eye floaters, visible only when seeing white wall. Eye checkup done and no retina tear or hole at that time. Now seeing white spots (like quote symbol or white line) in vision for few minutes when blinking eye only after seeing bright head lights of vehicles. And also seeing vapour ripple effect in vision when going out on a sunny day, its starts after few minutes when I started. I am scared with these symptoms. Are these symptoms for any major concern. Please help and guide me on what to do next. Is there any safe way to remove floaters from eyes?

If your retina is fine, you need not worry. Whatever symptoms you have described points towards Migraine aura. Bright light is one of the trigger factors for the same. Please make sure you wear shades whenever you step out on sunny days. Seeing flashlights can cause after images and so seeing white lines or spots is common. Floaters are common and it does settle gradually in some.
