Hi all? i am writing in response to" weiss ring", who posted re: a floater, via vitreous detachment. My husband had cataract sx in june,2020, since then so many issues ! sx went well however, a large floater developed on side of eye. went to 5 opthalmologists, and all they did was of course, prescribe drops, hes been on so many drops, cant keep up the list ! really? after reading all of your posts, i find he is not alone ! i wonder about these doctors and why no one can really find why these things occur. He does have sinus issues, living here in humid florida. I know the eye is affected by the sinus cavity, no eye doctor will tell him that, but he did go to an ENT, she said she couldnt find anything wrong. He has some pain in right eye after, almost 9-10 months now, off and on.
he went s far as leaving town, to an island in caribbean, for 8 weeks, and his eye LITERALLY , cleared up !! i was shocked.
he is back in florida with same issues. Go fiqure! he probably will have to move there ! anyone????

@sunny1971 oh I cant stay away…such a thirst for information and trying a little bit to offer help or tell my story; an ophthalmologist does some surgery but is there a limit to their knowledge/expertise? I have twice had it done in their office and ws not as comfortable with it as if it had been day surgery in a hospital.
I annually saw a vitriol specialist several years in a row out of town before diagnozed with glaucoma… i had had laser where i live and left me with floaters. He mentioned a cataract starting and that he could remove and 'clean up the eye at the same time' i presume do surgery and I think they replace vitreous with a liquid – sorry its some time ago but can be checked on internet; however, I do understand that it is not always successful if it was I think all of us with floaters would rush to have it done/…there is a post on here somewhere and a man has been seeking someone to remove his floaters and it has not been easy to find and last person/surgeon he saw is deciding whether or not to even do the surgery….
what peeked my curiosity is the being away from Florida for 8 weeks… was it the pain in his eye that cleared up while on the island, or the floater? I know sometimes on an overcast day or where I am sitting myfloaters are not as noticeable, another day looking out of a window its like puffs of smoke; looking over a sunny lake i see black dots…. am sure you will get lots of responses i am curiius to read them too. As far as eye drops – well, its never ending search in my opinion, for some of us. J.
