See Eye MD: Only with an in-person dilated retinal exam could an accurate diagnosis be made.

Depends: High myopes can have the vitreous detach early in life. As the vitreous detaches, some patients can actually see the back of the vitreous moving in the eye as the eye moves from side to side. This can often times appear like a haze, screen, gauze, cheese cloth, etc. A dilated retina exam will help look for any associated retinal holes or tears.
