    Hi
    Any eye specialists here? Or anyone who knows about floaters in the eye.
    I noticed ten days ago that some shadow like grey blackish dot on the vision/eyesight on the left eye. It moves as my eye ball moves.

    I have seen the eye Dr ( general opthalmologist and not the retina specialist). He did tests and said it's called floaters. No treatment given and he said it has to go away on its own. Or there's a chance if it increasing to multiples and also changes to develop on the other eye. He told me to watch out for that and see him if that happens.

    He said flattered floaters happen with age. I have heard it happens with elder people. I am 38 and not sure if it's expected at this age. Dr said it can happen.

    Anyone here have this issue? How do you deal with it? I am still getting used to this new vision. Though it's a small dot like shadow, it does disturb the eyesight.

    Anyone have this issue or heard of it?

    I got the same issue when I was 32, went to an opthomologist complaining about that grey or black spot moving whenever I move my eye ball..she said that it's quite common in middle age and there is no special treatment for this.. also she said that.. initially it may bother you but eventually you will get used to it and will hardly notice them...now I am in forties...and I hardly notice them though I see them occasionally.

    @gknew Yes it is more common with myopia. As you have seen the ophthalmologist already and he/she didn't give you treatment then chill. It mostly occurs due to changes in your vitreous humor. This occurs when vitreous liquefies . NOrmally this vitreous is gelly like substance with fibres embedded in it.

    But if you notice sudden increase in floaters or if you see flashes of light in your vision you should urgently visit an ophthalmologist.

    I hope my answer helps you.
