Inflammaton: Read pain with eye movement can be a sign of a serious eye problem like inflammation of the optic nerve; however, a small back spot or spots are floaters and usually are not anything significant. If it is a large black spot obstruction your vision then it may be bleeding or some other inflamed problem with the retina, then i suggest you be examined by an eye md, that is an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Had a eye test and eyes seem fine but I keep seeing a black dot in my vision and even when I close my eyes. It stays on one position then goes?

Vitreous floater: It sounds like you have vitreous floaters, little grayish spots of differing shapes in the vitreous cavity of your eye. These increase with aging, myopia, lattice degeneration, and can arise from retinal tears, inflammation, trauma, surgery. The dilated eye examination is important to rule out serious causes that need treatment. As long as this has been done, just monitor for change. ...Read more

Takes a while: I am guessing that your ophthalmologist (not an optometrist i hope) evaluated your eye including a dilated retinal examination. Since nothing therapeutic was recommended, you are probably having changes with age in your vitreous, which commonly includes the development of floaters in the vision. The fluids move very slowly and it can take years for some spots to disappear. ...Read more

Black spot visible in lower right corner of vision. Right eye. Same spot. Visible 50% time. Specialist says nothing on retina. Thoughts?

Black spot visible in lower right corner of vision. Right eye. Same spot. Visible 50% time. Specialist says nothing on retina. Thoughts?

Eye Floater: You are describing an eye floater which is caused by an irregularity in the vitreous gel of the eye. The fact that your retinal exam is normal is good news as the irregularity is in the vitreous rather than the retina. Floaters are not dangerous and are just irritating. They normally do not require treatment but if it bothers you a Vitrectomy may be an option ...Read more

Doc found a black spot behind my eye said it could be a freckle sending me for 2nd opinion. Seeing floaters n blurry vision eyepain is this normal?

Doc found a black spot behind my eye said it could be a freckle sending me for 2nd opinion.  Seeing floaters n blurry vision eyepain is this normal?

No: The eye pain and floaters are probably not related to the 'freckle' and are not normal. A choridal nevus is a freckle in the choroid the layer under the retina covering the inside of the eye. Most are benign but need to be monitored. A retinal exam and a bscan ultrasound can give clues if it is a melanoma (malignant tumor). A second opinion is a good idea in this case. ...Read more

Visual disturbance: Could be from congestion because when you sleep the fluids from congestion flow into the eye area.Would elevate head of bed with pillow between mattress and boxspring. That being said follow up today with optometrist(lenscrafters, hour eyes) as they can get a good look at the eye and are accesible and can tell you if something in the eye needs immediate attention. f/u w/ doc may need antibiotics ...Read more

I have a black dot in my eye. Is this serious?

Floaters: Floaters are thickenings in the vitreous jelly inside the eye. They are common with age, myopia, inflammation, trauma, and other issues. They are benign and do not damage your vision. Rarely, they can cause retinal tears which may require laser treatment. Otherwise, no treatment is needed. In very rare cases, the floaters can become dense enough to block vision and may need surgical removal. ...Read more
