    Did you go to an ophthalmologist or an optometrist? An ophthalmologist is an MD who can do eye surgery and is usually better skilled than an optometrist, who is NOT a physician.

    Over the last four years, I have had this phenomenon from time to time. My ophthalmologist said it was a minor neurological disorder in the eye, and is not serious.

    I have floaters too. My eye MD isn't worried about it either. Apparently it just happens with age and unless one really impairs vision the MDs would rather just let floaters go.

    Maybe you should consider seeing a different eye doctor for a 2nd opinion on this situation. It sounds rather serious to me.

    I would seek a second opinion from another eye Dr. Be sure it is an ophthalmologist, not an optometrist.

    I have that happen to me sometimes too and there’s nothing wrong with my eyes. I’m 20 years old. If you’re really concerned, I would go back to another doctor and get a 2nd opinion.
