Eye Worried Spider

I accidentally stepped on a daddy long leg barefooted. The head was stuck to my foot all night. Should I be worried about the spider's poison?
No: This arachnid is not a spider. It is in the order Opiliones. Opiliones is a distinct order that is not closely related to spiders within the order Arachnida. It doesn't contain poison glands and it's fangs are too short and its mouth too round and small to bite a human and therefore is not dangerous. ...Read more

Entoptics: You are seeing a normal phenomenon. When you defocus and look at a clear sky, or uniform white wall or something similar, you will notice ghostly spots rapidly moving in and out of the edge of the central vision on a network like a spider web.

Right after complete eye and retina exam, the very next day grey tiny bugs connected with spider nets started flowing around my eyes. What is this?
Floaters...again!: Luckily, as we mentioned before, if your retinal exam was normal, you are AOK. It's floaters in your visual axis. Once they settle down, you'll be fine, or when your brain cancels them out. They are more noticeable on a blue sky, or against a white wall/desk. So, be well. Your optic nerve is doing well. Floaters are a nuisance! ...Read more

I have spider angiomas, two underneath my eyes and one on my pinky finger. What could be causing this and how are they treated?
Most spider angiomas aren't related to other disease; some are caused by thyroid disease, pregnancy, liver disease, etc. They are caused by dilated veins beneath the skin. The two main treatment options are sclerotherapy (substance injected in vein to clot it) and vascular laser treatments. You may requires several sessions of either to make them go away.

These are not dangerous and generally fade away after several months. New lesions, those that bulge out or cause restriction in movement should be evaluated by a physician and/or dermatologist. ...Read more

Examination: I recommend an examination by a quick care MD to evaluate the bite area and determine what type of tissue reaction that is evident. Brown recluse & black widows are the two spiders we are most worried about and antivenom/or dapsone med is needed. Sometimes these bites can be quite serious and cause significant pre septal cellulitis & necrosis of skin & can be disfiguring if not quickly treated. ...Read more
