eye streaks

I am 66 yrs old, with type 2 diabetes, and controlled glaucoma. Just today, I began to experience rapid streaks of light  out of the edges of my eyes.  They come about 5-6 per minute.  I have had floaters before, but these seem to streak by even when I don't move my eyes.

Dear sweetbaboo,

I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD to determine the cause of these light streaks. It might indicate a serious issue therefore requires immediate attention.
