Floaters: Floaters are a common occurrence and generally do not pose much risk.

I just had a sudden burst of floaters in my right eye then I saw bright white dots floating around the central vision, is this a one off or serious?
Could be serious.: Consider it to be serious until you have an eye exam to insure that there is no sign of a retinal detachment. It could be due to separation of the vitreous from the retina. While this is happening, it is good to be very cautious and limit activity and straining. Sometimes detachments and tears occur after the initial symptoms so it is best to be followed by an eye specialist. ...Read more
Floaters in both eyes. Sometimes aren't noticeable, but other times are very prominent. Many floating across vision. Is this normal?

Floaters.: Floaters are small vitreous opacities that arise when the vitreous gel inside the eye liquefies naturally with age. This may occur due to aging, trauma, inflammation, or even high myopia. The floaters may consist of protein precipitates. Though the vitreous gel inside the eye is clear, it is composed of a complex matrix of collagen proteins that undergo changes with age. These are floaters. ...Read more
Why would I have light flashes and floaters in my vision for over 3 months, they haven't gone away?
Flashes/floaters: These symptoms occur as we get older and the firm vitreous gel gets more liquefied. The process in which the gel separates from the retina is called posterior vitreous detachment. While it is occurring, there may be pulling on the retina by strands of vitreous. When this occurs, the retina transmits the sensation of flashes to the brain. Prolonged pulling causes prolonged flashes. ...Read more
Having lots of floaters with 6/5 vision, no other vision problems, is this possible that I lymphoma?
No, don't worry!: Floaters are very common and they aren't a symptom of lymphoma, so don't worry! Lymphoma causes fevers, weight loss, swollen lymph nodes and night sweats. Floaters are stringy bits of protein in the vitreous gel of your eye. They aren't dangerous, just annoying. If they are suddenly new, or if you having flashing sparkles in your vision, see an eye doctor as that might signal a retinal problem! ...Read more
I have very wavey vision in the sun along with floaters. I was told my optic nerves are swollen as well. What could it be?

"Swollen optic nerves" are quite pathological and might represent inflammation or increased pressure within your brain. This needs to be fully evaluated, and a neurologist involved if appropriate. ...Read more

Floaters: Most floaters are caused by small flecks of protein called Collagen.

If symptoms develop, consult eye doctor. ...Read more
More aware of visual snow or tv static in vision lately (not floaters). Could this be caused by anxiety/stress? Stress has been up lately.
Eye exam and CBT: Rule out any possible eye disease by an exam - not just sight test. Then consider a psych eval by a psychologist to Dx and give treatment recommendations. CBT is a way to optimize your mental health outcome. Medication alone is less effective. Learn how to handle stress. Best! ...Read more

Why do I have a massive amount of floaters around my vision ever since I was born and they haven't disappeared not even for one day. Is this weird?
Seen ophthalmologist: What has an ophthalmologist said? If you've had this condition since birth and it hasn't really impeded your vision then, clinically it should remain stable. Origin though would only be something an ophthalmologist can tell you about as to whether they represents physical particulate matter inside the globe itself or something else. ...Read more
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

I have had floaters and blury vision, Headache for two weeks im mixing up my words, anxious and am sure only thing it could be is a tumor?
No: They are not related to each other. You can have perfectly clear vision, and still have floaters. Floaters are just shadows created by opacities floating within the eye. It is possible that you could have so many floaters that they literally block your vision, but that is not common. ...Read more
