Hi there. My name is Owen and I am a 24 years old male with -6.50 (right) and -6.25 (left) myopia.
One month ago, I began to notice some transparent shape of things floating right in front of my eyes. I have read about floaters before as I have high degree of myopia. Therefore, I went to a eye doctor for examination. The doctor gave me a examination through spilt lamp after giving me some dilated pupil drops. He said my retina was fine but I had mild degree of vitreous syneresis.
One week after the visit, at one night when I moved my head quite hard in the dark I saw some flash and I started to fear a lot and was afraid that this was going to be a retinal tear or detachment. I went to a eye doctor the day after. He took a fundus photo of my eye (back of my eye) and said the photo showed that my retina was ok, no tear, no hole, no degeneration,no detachment. Basically the same conclusion as the former doctor. And I have never saw a flash after that incident.
I know I am being too sensitive about what's happening in my eyes but I am still so young and really do not want any accidents to happen. I am wondering will my condition develop into PVD over time and what's the chance of developing RD in my situation?
My doctor also suggests no rigorous sports for me and no sudden movement of my head. Is it push-ups and sit-ups ok for me to exercise? And am I ok to take plane in this situation? What else should I be careful in my daily life?
Thank you very much!
