Large Floaters In My Vision
Large dark floater in right eye & today developed floater in left eye. Retinas ok but floaters are distorting vision. Would cognitive therapy help?
Floaters: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read more
Have large dark floater & glaucoma in right eye & today developed large floater in left eye. Do floaters have anything to do with glaucoma?
No: The two are independent and represent separate eye diseases. Floaters could be a warning sign that a retinal tear or even small detachment has formed. They can also arise when there is bleeding in the eye. Although unlikely, blood that has not fully been reabsorbed can cause something called ghost cell glaucoma. An examination of the eyes is essential. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
In regards to retinal detachment, symptoms are red eye, blurry vision, black spots and lights, pain at times, noticeable dimness all in one eye only
Guarded Prognosis: Pain and red eye usually aren't associated with retinal detachment unless it is chronic or unless the eye has inflammation and the detachment is caused by a fluid build-up instead of a hole. Given your history there are other things that can dim vision, such as a blocked vessel. You should be carefully evaluated by a retina specialist to optimize your chances of recovery. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I lost soft contact lens in my eyes, fornix , they have folded and ruptured, and small particles of this lens were falling in my eye, im seeing floaters.
Floaters: There is no association between your contact lens tearing and the development of floaters. If your eye is still irritated from possible contact fragments on your eye surface then you should be evaluated by your eye doctor to have these fragments removed. In addition, your eye doctor will evaluate your floaters (which are inside your eye) to rule out any internal eye problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dizziness and increase in eye floaters in bright light. Retina normal eyes close to 20/20 optometrist said. Slight ring in ears and popping sometimes?
Eye field test and tomography showed that my eye nerves are healthy but scotomas are floating in my left eye(hardly noticeable)Will they get bigger?
Maybe: It is important to establish the actual cause of the scotomas. There is a type of glaucoma called normal tension glaucoma where the eye pressure measures in a range that would be normal for others but still causes damage in the patient. Scotomas can also be caused by migraines and other neurological causes. Health of the optic nerve is first assessed with a dilated fundus exam. ...Read more

Can a left choroidal fissure cyst of 12mm affect vision in left eye. Blurry and double vision on and off.
Not likely: cysts of the choroid fissure or plexus are a common finding and totally asymptomatic. If you have optic neuritis this is something a neurologist and ophthalmologist need to be following. It can be a symptom of possible multiple sclerosis. It can be from other causes. Did you have a MRI with and without contrast? If they are looking for MS they will do additional images - to find lesions ...Read more
I have floaters in vision, In bright light they are more prominent and blurry. When younger big polyps removed? left nostril generally blocked
??: Need a little more info about your question. I assume you're saying you have a blind spot centrally and your seeing scintillating light peripherally--typically lasting about 15 minutes, not usually associated with any other symptoms. Sounds like an acephalic migraine or ocular migrains, without headache, sometimes described as auras. Central blindspot is concerning though. See your eyemd. ...Read more
See an eye doc ASAP: Any new onset floaters with decreased vision requires a dilated examination with an eye doctor immediately. Though it is often only floaters (a normal change that causes the gel in the back of the eye to develop small cracks), it must be differentiated from a retinal hole, tear or detachment - which all require immediate treatment. See an eye doctor right away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
