Large Floaters Swirling 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
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?

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
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
Constant flickers in my peripheral vision (mostly left eye) in dark since a couple of weeks.Checked with my retina specialist-no tear.Will it subside?
Blurry vision lower quarter visual field of left eye (is like a greasy film over bottom quarter of eye.) Blood pressure perfect.
I'm 23 and I have noticed floaters in my left eye and constant flashing of lights in my peripheral vision when I'm outside. It's almost looks like a million gnats flying around. Thoughts?
Usually not: Many have small floater(s). If they are in the direct line of vision (uncommon) it can be annoying. If there are no other issues with the development of the floaters such as trauma, retinal detachment, etc. (you should be evaluated to rule these out by an ophthalmologist), then floaters are benign and will not change vision and eye health in any meaningful way. ...Read more
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
Zigzag black and white lines in eyes. Partial blindness after light glare or in light. Headache at vase of skull and left facial pain into nose.
Migraine aura?: You could be describing the aura of a migraine attack. It is also possible based upon your description of headaches over just the left side of face that you could be describing symptoms of a cluster though visual aura in those sorts of headaches is rare. You could also be talking about someone who has extreme photophobia for other reasons such as cataract removal which then, can precipitate HA's. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I wake up with large "floaters" in my left eye along with cloudy/blurred out vision. It almost feels and looks like grey grocery bags that float over.
??: 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
