I am seeing spots, like I have looked into a bright light or the sun. What are the possible causes of this. I have never had a migrane before and don't think this is it.

Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
If the spots are always there in certain light conditions and they move, they are likely to be "floaters".

See http://www.aao.org/theeyeshaveit/disturbances/floaters.cfm

If this is a new symptom, it is a very good reason to see an ophthalmologist for a full evaluation.
