Hi, I have had eye floaters and visual snow for 7 years now. I got them shortly after I got my first pair of glasses. It was never really that bad before, I would only notice it if i looked at the sky and concentrated on it. A few months ago I got my first pair of contact lenses, which were a bit stronger of a prescription than my glasses were. I noticed after a month of wearing my new contacts that my floaters and visual snow appeared to be magnified. the floaters more than doubled in size and the VS became more intense. I also started to notice that I could see the floaters on every background, even in the shade. I can I went and had several eye exams over the past 3 months just to make sure nothing was wrong. They said that my eyes were perfectly healthy, no signs of any damage. I just thought that it was strange that this happened after getting contacts. Has anyone ever heard of something like this happening and what would cause it?
