Persistent Floaters

    I've been annoyed and plagued by a persistent 'floater' near the centre of
    my vision in my left eye for a couple of weeks now. I think I only really
    notice it when using my computer. It's not always there but most of the
    time. Nothing unusual has happened lately that I explain it by. I don't wear
    contact lenses. I'm assuming it's the same floater since I only ever see one
    at a time - the exact shape isn't clear.

    Am I correct in assuming this is caused by something inside my eye rather
    than on the surface?
    Is there a name for this?
    What might have caused it?
    Is there anything I can do to remedy it?

    Thanks,

    Yes, but it's not important.
    Mental strain.
    Yes, learn to look at the sun regularly on a daily basis and it will go
    away by itself.

    Basically, a vitreous floater is actually inside of your eye, in the
    vitreous.
    The floater itself is benign but you might want to consider seeing an
    eye provider for a dilated retinal exam to ensure no retinal problems
    (ie
    retinal tear). Most floaters are just caused by the aging process of
    the
    vitreous.

    There is really no effective treatment for floaters - there are a
    couple
    of providers in the U.S. that attempt to laser them but it is not
    widely available and there are no meds.

    Any constructive feedback appreciated:

    Another of the impossibilities that ophthalmologists confess.
    Other impossibilities are:
    they do not know how to cure myopia, hypermetropia, astigmatism,
    strabismus, presbyopia, etcetera
    they do not know how to cure glaucoma, retinitis, macular degeneration,
    blindness, etcetera
    they do not know how to prevent imperfect sight
    they do not know how to cure astenopia
    etcetera

    This is impossible: if you project the shadow of a fly on the wall, you
    won't see any shadow if the fly is too distant from the wall. Same
    thing happens for the floaters. How do you explain tha the floaters
    simply vanish from time to time? It is clear that they have a mental
    origin.
    Again this is not true for many reasons, you know why.
    Then why people that starts treatment without glasses and according to
    rest methods do not see them again?
    No please, stop that bullshit.

    These symptoms are easily curable: just learn some principles of
    perfect sight, accustom again your eyes to sunlight, discard any kind
    of glasses, and the floaters will go away quickly.

    Thanks for the info.
    I had my regular eye check a few days ago, but the optician didn't have any
    useful information. She did ask if the 'floater' moved or not and I said it
    did. I imagine she was checking it wasnt retina damage.
    Since over the years I've occasionally noticed floaters floating through the
    centre of my fields of vision, but never had one stick around like this, I'm
    hoping it will eventually float away or be removed by some natural mechanism
    within the eye.
    I'm still confused by the physics of how these things move around though. If
    the eye is filled with jelly they should be fixed in place. If it isn't in
    fact a jelly but a liquid, why is this one hanging around?

    Yes, you call it a floater but in fact it is not.

    If you talk with a client who does not see them any more, what do you
    think, that, he is allucinating?

    You continue to call names, invent things.

    The facts are very simple: if you practice the methods of the normal
    eye, the floaters are not seen anymore.

    I can see them sometimes and then they disappear.

    I have clients from all the ages who can witness this process also.

    The main cure is with sun-gazing.

    Once you can look at the sky without the fear to see floaters, you are
    cured, or your cure has started.

    Why should I?

    I'm not a floater, which does not exist either.

    Perhaps you are an idiot?
