... Hey Sophie,
Thanks for your reply. From what u said u symptoms sound different than mine. Mine are little white blobs, more like minature white flashes. That last for a minute or two. I can only see them when looking at the blue sky or a light colored background. They come a few times a day. and flicker more intensly when I blink. Is this what your seeing as well?

... Hey guys...my symptoms are identical to yours. I was diagnosed with uveitis (iritis) and was given an injection of prednisone in my right eye 6 weeks ago. The floaters in my right eye are gone except for two lingering ones. The doc injected the left eye on the 22nd and it is now clearing up also. However, the blob still comes and goes in the left eye, but not as often. ... (12 replies)

Do you see afterimages, too? I agree, that some of these darn things I am seeing are just me being hypersensitive and monitoring my vision all the darn time. I think I probably have had the aniscoria and floaters for quite some time and am now just noticing it with all the anxiety I am creating.
I, too, tried to go back and look at old pictures, but my eyes... (12 replies)

... Floaters don't always float - mine was totally fixed, but I am an obsessive type and I'd be checking the spot all day long, so it WAS there all the time. a "normal" person may not have realized that it was, but when it comes to matters of health I'm not normal :(

... Thanks for the response! Your experience does sound similar to the symptoms I have in some respects. Was your spot present 24 hours a day or did it come and go? The ones I'm experiencing seem to "flare up" once or twice a day for about 5-10 minutes; the rest of the time I can't see them at all. I should point out that I've never seen them flare up in both eyes at once. This... (12 replies)
... Sounds like what I had back in January. I was told it was a stubborn floater! I described it exactly the same way as you. The only exception was that I was having a hard time reading because it was in the center of my vision and the spot would block out a letter in a word. When I'd look at a wall and blink, the spot would keep getting darker as I'd blink - exactly like it... (12 replies)
