  • Posted to Designers, do you see eye floaters?, in reply to Andrei Rac , Jun 12, 2019

    Ok good, but it's something to keep on top of. In my case, I have flashes in my left eye as a result of my PVD, where the vitreous is tugging very slightly on the retina. When that happens, it manifests itself as an electrical signal which the brain interprets as a flash of light. The ultimate danger is if the flashes increase or worsen, that could be a sign of a retinal detachment starting.

    Flashes are usually a sign of a retinal issue. I would recommend seeing a retina surgeon.

    Not so fun: A shower of red blood cells entering your vision due to a hemorrhage. That wasn't fun at all.

    I'm not sure how old you are, but eye floaters are perfectly normal and are simply a sign of aging degeneration and are generally harmless by themselves. I agree they can be pretty annoying in bright light, as what you are actually seeing is the shadows from the floaters being cast on your retina. They never really go away, but as I noted earlier, the brain learns to adapt to the fact they are there, and often times they can fall out of the field of vision to not be too much of a bother.

    Yes. I've had a PVD (post vitreous detachment) in my left eye which has left me with a Weiss Ring, and the same is likely to happen in my right eye at some point. I've also had a retinal tear in the left eye associated with the PVD which was lasered up. So yeah, I've got tons of floaters, all the result of lifelong nearsightedness and aging. I only really notice all the junk floating around in there if I become hyper-aware of it, but in time the brain adapts and generally ignores it as being "normal". That part is actually quite interesting.
