I went to see an Optometrist the other day and she performed that procedure where they dilate your eye and look into it. She said she could see the floaters in my eye and that they were strands, which is correct.
I'd be interested to hear of other people's experiences.
Yep my ophthalmologist said he could see my floaters moving around. Last year when I was in Taiwan I saw the doctor there, and he was plotting out the positions of my floaters on paper. However, neither were willing to take action, offer sympathy or make referrals for treatment.
I've been to a couple of retinal specialist and and my regular eyd doctor and they have all seen my floaters, they say they look bad, and told me they won't and would not recommend a vitrectomy for them. They just said deal with it. Which I have been doing for 4 years now. I will hopefully find a retinal specialist to give me a FOV some time in the future, until then I just deal with them the best I can.
I have seen two ophthalmologists; the second one dilating my eyes, and neither one could see my floaters. From reading many other posts of those with vitreous opacities, I've concluded mine are minor by comparison. I've had one in my right eye for six years, and one in my left for four months. It's that left one that wants to dance every time I look left to change lanes on the freeway. I don't suffer nearly as much as many of the posts that I've read; yet I strive no less to find a solution now that it affects my daily life.
I have a small floater in each eye, however there are smaller bits of mass that swirl around with them. If I had to account for them too, I'd say I have about 5 floaters total.
The clearest way of seeing them is to lay down outside on a sunny day and look into the sky with my eyes closed. I know this sounds unusual, but I can make them out earier that way. It's a sort of negative image.
Yes I agree the peripheral of my vision is where they are the most annoying. Perhaps because they move faster after the eye rapidly tracks back to center.
