I am 35, I am short-sighted. I have since 14 years old spent a lot of time on laptops/computers due to studying, working in jobs that involve staring at a screen every day and general use. I believe this led to me becoming short-sighted at age 20.
I have had on and off eye issues for years. My quality of vision can change which is likely due to blurred vision due to eye strain....
More recently I have had worse vision than ever, more blurred, I can't yet tell if this is permanent or if a several week break from screens would fix it. Anyhow, on top of this my eyes have been sensitive to bright white screens for 2 months now. 2 days ago I realised I had approx 10 black squiggly floaters, I have never noticed something like this before. I only see them when I go into the bathroom on a sunny day, the bathroom is all white walls and floor. I did also notice the floaters the other day for 5 seconds when walking in the sunshine, but other than that I do not notice them at all.
Another thing I have noticed is that over the past 2 days on 2 occasions out of the corner of my eye I have seen something on the tv or my laptop flickering, then when I looked at it directly it didn't flicker. It would only flicker when it was in the corner of my eye / when I didn't directly look at it. This has only happened twice for a short amount of time, maybe 10 seconds.
On top of this I have dry eyes.
Any ideas what the issue could be?
I have looked it up and read that it is either a normal occurrence where part of the eye is liquifying or in more serious cases it could be retinal detachment which is my concern. I just wondered if what I have explained about my situation above can possibly be a sign of one (normal ageing process) more than the other (retinal detachment). Or....it also has most of the symptoms of Uveitis. Can eye strain/soreness/irritation lead to Uveitis? where maybe my body is trying to heal my strained eyes but not having much success as they are always strained so is possibly working overtime causing issues?
I have no medical conditions and am generally healthy.
