Well realize that article was by the "inventor" of the technique. It's not a scientific paper. It was over a year ago and there has been wholesale change in how floaters are viewed by the surgical community.
I have large floaters in each eye including a huge Weiss ring in my right eye. I would not consider any of these procedures for myself....
It is important that the diagnosis be made by an ophthalmologist. While pinguecula can occur in children they are usually very small. If you did not see an Eye MD for this diagnosis then have your pediatrician refer you to one. If you did then watch for any change.
Orbital fat atrophy is not unusual with prostaglandin glaucoma medication but is rare with cromolyn sodium. Nevertheless there are many other better allergy medications and you need to have this evaluated.
See an ophthalmologist Eye MD soon. If you live in USA find one near you at www.geteyesmart.org
I can reproduce the central circle in my own eye with forced blinking and close attention. At this point "watchful waiting" would seem to be in order. If nothing changes move on with your life. If something changes return to Duke.
If this is a small bright red spot on the white of your eyeball that came on after you vomited its likely, as you said, a small broken conjunctival vessels (subconjunctival hemorrhage) Try using artificial tears several times per day. They go away like a bruise.
It varies tremendously depending on whether a person is highly myopic, has had cataract surgery, has had trauma, has a family history of RD. For those without risk factors. Overall a mid range estimate would be one in 7,500 individuals without risk factors.
This requires a real live examination by an ophthalmologist. You should take in pictures of you taken over the last 10 years that show your lid position. You should ask the technicians not to put any drops in your eye until the Eye MD looks at you as they can change the lid position.
Have your family MD refer you or go to www.geteyesmart.org
