How long did yours take away to go away? It's been 2 years already and am still not used to them?
I had a retinal shear, but it went away. Please do not ignore it , at least keep checking if it’s getting better or worse. No hard sports , heading balls etc. get it fixed if it’s not naturally going away. Blindness is the one main bad consequence
I got it checked twice and the doctors said my eyes are healthy. I once suffered ptosis/droopy eyelid at one point but it went away. I'm glad yours went away.
It could be a symptom of retinopathy. My mom had them and ended losing vision in that eye
Now am scared. I think I'll go to the hospital again. I'm sorry that happened to your mum. Hugs
I've had them for a long time, but I also have other issues with my eyes. You get used to them after a while and don't notice as much. If you haven't already, get checked just to make sure it's nothing serious. That said - utachukia mosquitos even more. 8/10 I can't tell kama ni floater ama bug, so I'm constantly swinging at nothing kama mwenda xD
Someone who gets the struggle. I am sorry rafiki this shit can drive someone nuts. I saw on tiktok that liquid msm drops can help last night and I'm on the hunt.
When I developed them I was having severe anxiety and panic attacks. So I woke up one day and saw them and sadly they are there constantly
Don't want to be alarmist but they could be a symptom of pressure on the Optic Nerve. This is the worst-case scenario . There are other explanations too.
I once had issued with my optic nerve which translated to droopy eyelids and it resolved over time. I'll go to them hospital again. Thank you for responding
It could be worse. Imagine if you had tinnitus!
Had it for like two months, it's not bad unless you concentrate on it.
I've had it for years. It's bad when it's quiet... and when it's the pulsating kind as well
Use a fan or one of those static noise videos on YouTube. It temporarily negates the ringing so you can at least sleep peacefully.
I have an app but I'd rather not need something on my phone to help me sleep. I just go in raw more often than not, despite how annoying it can be
I sometimes experience it for a few minutes then it resolved. Hapo pa it could be worse not necessary. Both are valid struggles
Well. I'm in a similar situation as you. I do writing and use my laptop a lot. My left eye contracted hazy/blurry vision. I'm planning to visit the ophthalmologist this week and fear for my life. I'm also 24 and scared as hell with whatever diagnosis I will receive. So, yeah, you are not alone💪
I'm sorry buddy. I hope that it's nothing series. I know it's easier said than done but we got this. Also for floaters I'm trying liquid msm. Google it up. Some people say it worked for them
Start eating pineapples daily for the next 6 months. Just a slice.
I tried this but got demotivated after seeing that the Taiwan study doesn't work. I got bromelain and got not much results. Did you personally try it? If yes, how did it go
The problem with bromelain is quantity.
The problem with that study is no control group and their suggestive wording.
Pineapple works but the quantity is serious.
I suggest that you juice it without heating. Your tongue will thank you.
I did not try it but I trust the study because their previous studies were fine.
I’m a retina specialist.
The gel in the back of your eye (vitreous gel) is liquefying, separating and coming off your retina (this usually starts around age 30-40). The separation of the gel causes precipitates/condensations within the vitreous body. Light hits the vitreous body and casts shadows on the retina which you see as spots/strings etc. We call these floaters.
Because the vitreous gel is tightly bound to the retina, that separation (process called posterior vitreous detachment or pvd) causes traction on the retina which sometimes can also cause flashes of light. We get concerned about a retinal tear or hole when this is happening because these can lead to detachment of retina and subsequent blindness if not caught and treated early.
So if you ever see a sudden shower of floaters and flashes go see your ophthalmologist urgently.
The floaters themselves will get smaller and more importantly your brain will learn to ignore them. They might be more noticeable if you’re straining your eye, looking at a bright light or lying on your back.
I'm thankful to your elaborate answer. Frankly no doctor has explained to me like this. Sadly my floaters have increased and I would like to pay you a visit for consultation.
I’m in Connecticut and I have a feeling you’re in Kenya? Go to any ophthalmologist near you.
Do this as an experiment: Quit sugar, eliminate wheat or reduce it significantly and quit processed stuff for a month and come back and tell us the progress. If it doesn't work, I'm the biggest fool.
You sound certain and what do I lose by trying? I'll update on 4th of July. Thank you for the tip
Yes, kindof a keto diet.
And practice intermittent fasting. And some prolonged fasting, occasionally.
The autophagy caused by that cleans up / recycles a lot of bad stuff that's gathering in your body. It seems.
I am short sighted, have astigmatism,and chronic migraines. It does not surprise me when my eye just stops working. While my sight is poor, I notice that when I have migraines,I barely see anything. Imagine the bluriness,but also how you have a hard time adjusting to internal vision after being outside for some time. But randomly. Tha black spots are a menace too.
I wear glasses,but there's nothing more to do about the astigmatism and migraines.
I'm really sorry to hear about your struggle. I also have astigmatism and near sightedness. I'll add you to my players. I'm buying liquid msm from amazon in hope of getting rid of the eyefloaters. I'll post an update
