I have been seeing eye floaters for past 2 months. I examined with a doc about 2.5 months ago, when i had irritation because of viral fever. I was examined and told i have holes in retina(in both eyes).. i need a laser surgery.. i didnt go with it and wanted to consult another doc to confirm this. Like this i have consulted 2 docs. Second doc said i have retinal hole in one eye and need a laser surgery.. .. 3rd doc said nothing is wrong and if u see floater with lightning please come for treatment. Im confused all doc say something different all times. After consulting 3rd doctor, in a few days i started seeing floaters. All docs examined me with indirect test... My concern is the light used for testing caused this floater???
Now im seeing increase in floaters.... please hlp me on this doc
I would recommend that you follow the advice of the doctor that you seem to trust. If the symptoms change, such as an increase in floaters, a curtain coming down or flashing lights even with your eyes closed, you might need immediate treatment. Usually, retinal holes which have associated traction require treatment. You should be examined again by a retinal specialist since your symptoms have changed.

Hi, Describe your 'floaters'. I get bright white and similar black flashes with eyes open, no real vision distortion. Circular no bigger than iris. The first time it appears like a moving dotted cicle. Becomming solid in places but length keeps on varying. These fine lines has become better defined and I would say about a mm+ thick.
Been Seen today at University hospital's Eye clinic got dismissed saying they'll refer me to another clinician and said it nothing serious.
i went to the doctor to examine again for the eye floater problem. they examined and asked me a few questions on the number and am i seeing any flashes... then they have suggested 6 months once checkup so that they can have track on the floater...
Also they suggested no to surgery..
is there any food items that i should take so that these floaters atleast get reduced in numbers...
No surgery! Dr & 2 Students looked on......I informed themm that I'm awsre that 'gut' /'constipation is 99% responsible for most of our problems as humans. Refered to local hospital dr at eye clinic at out patients...He aask if I got a history of gloucoma...I said no...after scrutiny, he remarks, I stand as much as himself a chance for developing it! How irrelevant! Then continms one should keep faith and sue saying that my eyemuscle seems twisted....must tell opthalmotist when I go for eye check........I sometimes get light flashes , not serious..went to make an appointment and suddenly my vision got weak!.....Seems one have to stay out of reach of ultrasound controllers to stay well in the modern 'jungle'..cheers, Raulna
