My right eye seems to have a piece of fuzz on the side and a small black floating dot. Any thoughts as to why? What could it be?

My right eye seems to have a piece of fuzz on the side and a small black floating dot. Any thoughts as to why? What could it be?

Vitreous separation: hopefully, which is common and usually not serious, or retinal detachment, which is a very serious problem that could cause loss of sight. It is IMPOSSIBLE to tell which of these is happening without an examination of the inside of the eye with a special scope and preferably by a specialist. You need to be seen, TODAY, in an ED that has an opthalmologist on call. Good luck! ...Read more

I use expigment cream with %4 hydroquinone under my eyes for freckles is there side effect on my eyes ?? Sometime i feel mild burning of my eye?? help

Maybe too strong: The skin around your eyes is very thin and delicate so I like to be very cautious about what to put around that area. If you continue using it and experience burning, I would avoid using hydroquinone 4%. Let your doctor know, perhaps he or she will recommend 2% hydroquinone or another alternative for you. ...Read more
