Large cloud like floaters are driving me crazy with worry!
I have experienced floaters in both eyes for years, but lately they are really bothersome. My eye Doctor did say he saw many in both eyes and one large one in the eye that is driving me crazy.Reading and driving are becoming more and more difficult. I am a 62 year old jeweler and am worried that they may cause me to lose my sight. My eye Doctor told me to go home and quit fretting about them, am I being too anxious or should I search out more opinions?
Help!

Yes, I think you should get another opinion, preferably from an experienced, board-certified retinal specialist.  I've read about cases of floaters that were greatly improved by a vitrectomy.  This outpatient procedure is considered major surgery, and the outcome may be less than what you hoped for (e.g., you can end up with new floaters).  But perhaps just knowing that you have an option would lessen your anxiety.
