... Well... sort of.
Everyone has floaters to some degree. They're normal and harmless. However, a sudden increase in floaters can indicate a serious issue, like retinal detachment, blood vessels breakage, or a myriad of other problems. Also, severe floaters can drastically hurt the quality of vision (not to mention be a severe annoyance and hindrance to your daily activities).... (6 replies)

... For the past few months I've been experiencing symptoms in my eyes. I get whitish cloudy patches on my eyes that I can sometimes blink away and sometimes not, as well as a general sense of "haziness" and blurriness. This can make me strain to read and watch videos, especially with all the blinking. My right eye is a bit worse for this than my left.

... Thanks for replying. A lot has happened since my posting. I went to an ND and a chiro, both of whom believe that my vision problems are caused by a falling incident a few weeks before I experienced floaters, which resulted in whiplash and a rotated C2 vertebrae, which is directly connected to the optical nerve... I've had a ton of other numerous health issues since then as... (7 replies)

... Wish you well in finding the cause of the floaters and hope it's nothing serious. My doc said they may fade or settle down over time and for me, they have faded. Either that or my brain has gotten used to them. I've also tried a lot of different home remedies to promote overall eye health as well, so that might have helped - who knows... (7 replies)

... 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... (7 replies)
... 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... (7 replies)
... Thankyou for replying. In my case it is odd that dry eye started just before floaters appeared. But I will keep that in mind. So you think floaters are usually a permanent change? (7 replies)
... Most eye floaters are caused by changes that occur as the jelly-like substance (vitreous) inside your eyes becomes more liquid. Microscopic fibers within the vitreous tend to clump and can cast tiny shadows on your retina, which appear to you as floaters. Anxiety doesn't cause it, but if you are anxious you may be more aware of them.
My floaters are from vitreal tears.... (7 replies)
... I just posted about my issues and hope you find some help as well. Maybe our floaters are caused by dry eyes. But what made our eyes dry? I've never worn contacts. So far I've been too stubborn to see an opthamologist. I won't use steroid drops or much of anything they would recommend. I'm going to give my eyes a chance to improve by drinking herbal infusions and increasing... (7 replies)
... I found a thread from 2005 where a lot of people were explaining their weird floaters. Most mentioned it seems connected to anxiety. This connection is true for me as well.
My floaters appeared suddenly after a few weeks of burning and excessive tearing. Especially in windy areas. I thought it was a reaction to makeup so I stopped wearing any. No change. Gradually my... (6 replies)
... I really need some help with this problem. I have this problem where, whenever I look at things in motion I have this visual "disturbance". It's not like dizziness, or lightheaded mess. Moving things such as vehicles, words, footballs, and anything that can get into motion seem to completely bother my eyes. This only happens for the couple of seconds the thing in motion...
