Hi @quincy9, I have had floaters for years and I can definitely attest about their annoyance. You will notice that I moved your inquiry to a very lengthy, ongoing discussion about vitreous detachment. I did this so you can connect with the members who have experienced this and perhaps share with you their story. I encourage you to go through the 8 pages worth of content in order to see what they went through.
@quincy9 are you also experiencing photopsia, the random flashes of light across your vision?

@amandaburnett .. oh so thats what its called…. photopsia… like tiny bright "comets" all of a sudden streaming across my vision… scares me as thats how my detached retina/vitreous started but didnt go away… sounds like it is worth reading thru the 8 pages… message not meant for me but thank you, J.

Thank you. Yes I am experiencing random flashes. Most irritating and scary is the pain I have in my left eye (the affected eye) too. I wonder if this is common. I’m scared, but I do have an appointment again with my ophthalmologist.

Hello, do you have eye pain with this? I do and the eyeball itself hurts. It’s more of a deep dull ache.
