I have just been to an optician here in France and been told that having spiders webs in front of my eyes is no problem and I will have to get used to it. It is very annoying and disturbing especially as I now have difficulty in reading road signs when I am driving. Only see them when they are virtually on top of the car.
I had that happen to me suddenly in March, eye surgeon told me it would go away on it's own, and I need no treatment. 10 days later I had retina detachment. Sudden onset of spider webs might be a sign for more severe problems later. Check with another eye specialist.
What about detached retina? I had a couple of white flashes in my left eye about a year ago, then I noticed floaters which developed into spider web in sight. My vision did decrease in that eye, to the point of it looked to me like I was looking through a faint mist. I didn't have insurance, or money, and no free clinics would look into that. Now my right eye suddenly sees a thin silver strand in the out corner of the right eye, when I move my eyes, and there is pronounced spider webbing, and vision in that eyes is a little blurry. I see a huge aura around approaching lights until they are very close, and it's harder to read my computer monitor because of the blurriness of light.
