A 27-year-old female asked:

I frequently have eye floaters. i have been to the eye dr, but did not get my eyes dialated. would they have noticed if there was an issue of concern? i do work on a computer all day, but i typically have blue light glasses on?

Your retina has to be checked by an ophthalmologist and would in all likelihood require pupillary dilatation.
