Thanks, stayinalive! You are right about one thing, and that is it is hard to see something happening with the eye. I will just see how it is a few weeks from now. Thanks, again for your responses.
I have floaters, but they are mild, but I know they are a sign of detached retina. It's scary when you start having problems like that with your eyes. I have cateracts, they are genetic, but incipient at this time. Don't worry too much, Jane, just get regular exams. As long as your vision is not getting worse, you should be ok:)
Thanks for your response. I don't have cataracts or diabetes. So this alarmed me a bit. The Dr. did say if my floaters got worse or increased to see him again in about a month. The floaters seemed to subside. I don't want to be an alarmist but also do not want something to develop and not treat it or know what it is or what it was from.
If you had an exam, I am assuming it is not cateracts. If the retina becomes detached, there can be problems, so you are fortunate it isn't. My mom had those flashes of light, but it is just from aging. Maybe that is all it is. Do you have diabetes?
