Hope all goes well, MK.

Yes, Em, I do believe that the floaters are permanent. As far as I can understand, the eye itself is sort of a closed system, so that leads me to believe that the floaters won't have anywhere else to go. I have lots of floaters, but they look different each day. Weird and annoying!! Doctor says there is a surgery where the fluid can be removed and synthetic fluid replaced, but that is a true eye surgery and my symptoms are not "so bad" that I am willing to take a chance with my eye sight, which is good.

Just the thought of that sort of surgery makes me feel sick. I will just live with mine as well. Since I'm only 31, I'm counting on my condition remaining stable. I still may have a dilated exam just to see if a cause can be discovered. The after images and dryness may help narrow that down.
Please keep posting your experiences with floaters everyone. The more info we all have the better.
Em
