masturbation and the effects on eyes

I am a 19 years old boy.I masturbate 2 or 3 times  a week.
Every time I masturbate it may be continue for 30 min.Nearly a year ago after a masturbating night I saw a black spot in my eye.After that every time I masturbate I see added spots and cloudy vision like floaters.And it become worse and worse every time.Now i have lots of them.  
What is the reason of creation of this floaters in realation with masturbation?
What is the the difference between masturbation or having sex with others that sex with others does not creat floaters?
Are there any ways to treat and to avoid of creation of more floaters?(treatment is very important for me)
Thank you

There is no difference between intercourse and masturbation. Think about it. How can your body possibly tell the difference? It doesn't know whether it was your hand, your partner's hand, mouth, vagina, anus, whatever...

Hi- Wow, I thought I was the only one, but I have been experiencing the same thing.  I am 25 and recently I have been masturbating more often and sometime up to an hour.  I have always had floaters (it is common in near sighted people) but years ago I noticed a dark spot which was very disturbing to me.  It would come and go but it is more prevalent in bright light, after working long hours in front of a computer and when i make sweeping motions with my eye and need to re-focus.  Recently it's been pretty prevalent in my vision with other floaters.  I've had dilated eye exams and the opthalmologists say they do not see any retinal damage and recommended eye breaks (1 minute per every 20 minutes of computer use) and eye lubricant to keep the eyeballs moist.  If you suddenly see a large onset of floaters, you should have an eye exam asap to make sure you did not develop a tear in your retina.  

I have also had been seeing little streaks in my vision and I think it is the blood vessels... my increased use of a computer and sitting in A/C all day I belive are straining and drying my eyes.

The floaters and spots are benign and will often settle below your line of vision after months or years.  It is only when they seriously impair your vision will a doctor recommend a vitrectomy (removing the vitreous fluid of the eyeball) and the potential complications are much worse than dealing with the specks.  In a way, you gotta have humour to deal with them and then when you stop obssessing about them (which i tend to do) you don't notice them!  I have also read certain yoga poses help you to deal with floaters.

So, not sure masturbation causes spots or floaters, but possibly the strain placed on the body could be indirectly causing some sort of vascular strain on the body.  Give the masturbation a break for a few days, relax, get a dilated eye exam to rule out any retinal issues, keep your eye lubricated, avoid eye strain and see how you feel in a month.  These are the measures I'm taking for myself.

i think there is an indirect relationship between floaters and masturbation.iam final year medical student and i think there is connection.
u will first have to understand that different peole have different body chemistry and eact differently to same stimulus.
in ur case  i think floaters are side effect of masturbation(excess or just routine). some people experience a low back ache immediately after masturbation, which will be so obvious as they do it each time
others may have some speech difficulties and concentration problems

well explanations to these effects are difficult, may be the alterations in hormone levels
so about remedy...if u found a cause , then remedy is to keep away the cause .
so abstain from the process as long as possible and reduce the frequencies to as much minimum as u can .

I would guess that it occurs because most guys hold their breathe upon ejactulation.

what is the problem with masturbation. it is actually quite clear that the majority of people who masturbate come across many medical problems in during the period of time they masturbate. it is not quite clear however if there is a direct link to floaters and masturbation. studies have been posted that claim as a person masturbates a chemical known as aceytocholine is released into the body and consequentially causes problems to the eyes which results in the breakup of segments from the vitreous fluid. these segments of vitreous fluid then become floaters that we see in our eye time to time. my suggestion to all the people who masturbate,stop before you end up in complete mental retardation it is quite obvious from studies that the floater problem is real and must be dealt with accordingly. i would like to pose the following question to the people who masturbate: have you ever notice a sudden decrease in the amount of things you can recall after you have masturbated and also have you noticed a decrease in concentration after you have masturbated. better yet let me suggest an experiment that we can all divulge in. we will have our control as going without masturbation for a month and the experimental as doing masturbation over intervals of time. so once you have done as i have suggested in this experiment please write back to me as soon as you can with the results and on top of everything reflect on the floater problem. does the amount of floaters that you see in your eye decrease over the period of time that you go without masturbation vs in the intevals  that you masturbate in. thank you

you need  medical advixd for your vision.Usually masterbation (masturbation) has no damaging effect.However there are other factors may pricipitate the problem.
Yes there is a great difference between masturbation and loving intercourse.Great pleasure happens when both partners achieve orgasm at the same time.It is indescribable.One has to experience it.More pleasure is achieved in givint pleeasure to other specially in sexual matters.When only one partner get orgasm then it is as good as masterbation (masturbation) only.

In intercourse every atom of the body participates in the act whereas in masturbation only genital organs participate. In intercourse energy is wasted where as in intercourse energy is exchanged.

There is different btw sex and masturbation.

In real sex, our body is aroused and stimulated by the opposite sex, the flirt, the conversation, the scent, the touch, the taste, the interaction  ...

In masturbation, usually one will lack a few factors of the above. In order to get an arousal, one will have to rub harder, which is bad to the body

Imagine one's body as a car, masturbation is like starting a car in the morning without warming up, what harm will it do to the engine?

I am an nearsighted person who got a black spot with floaters while I was masturbating. After a few weeks I found that it might be serious and had my eyes examined by a specialist and found out that I have a retina break in my eye and the other floater were actually because of Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD). I was advised for laser treatment as soon as possible ( it's actually an eye emergency case) and I did it. That black spot could make me go blind if I had ignored it actually because it can cause the detachment of retina. I am writing here to let others know about the experience I have had and make other aware of the possible danger of masturbation especially in people with high nearsightedness. I could always feel the pressure on my eyes while masturbating but I really didn't know how dangerous it can be for my eyes. As far as I have understood, masturbation is really very different with a real intercourse and you won't feel that pressure with a real one.
Please visit a doctor as soon as you see any floaters or black stops in your eyes! They can be very very dangerous if they are ignored. Only in 10% of the patients the floaters are of serious ones! So, no worries! Just have them examined!

I'm Surprised nobody seems to aspire the possible affect of a persons electromagnetic field. We all have one, so clearly through sex the sub-conscious mind and/or our body, should be able to tell there is a conflict within its magnetic field with a other persons. I'm sure signals are sent  through the nervous system, as are senses of smell, taste, feel, etc. People want to babble how can your body tell, well how does your body tell when your lifes in danger? or when you are scared, or angry?  When people have sex it's not usually a " hey lets have an indifferent ****".

This is why masturbation and sex are different. Stimulation sensors are differently triggered.  Our mind tells our body these differences, whether subconsciously or through anatomical surcharge. Masturbation can be problematic in the sense of over stimulation, because it could lead to erectile dysfunction because of eradic patterns and sexual drive being lost due to over self-stipulation causing less eagerness to get laid. However masturbation on occasion is scientifically proven to be pretty healthy, and whatever is happening with your eye is most likely irrelevant to masturbation. If it is , you will be 1 in a 100000000000 lol
