    Hey Laura.  i have almost identical problems.  I have also started to have light trails when i look at rear brake lights etc.  My problems started about 15 years ago when i had retina tears that were sealed but now i think i have more floaters in my right eye.  I have an eye examination booked at the end of June so i will let you know how it goes.  In your instance i would book an immediate appointment at the opticians and explain the issues.  They will  examine your eyes and refer you if they suspect a problem.  Good luck :-)

    Honestly in my opinon your symptoms are not "the norm" .... or at least i think not, unless like me you have had previous issues.  I would go to another opticians but dont tell them you already been examined (its worth the small examination fee). At least then if they both say its ok then at least you know.  When i went to the opticians they had a look and referred me to be on the safe side.

    I have read somewhere that anxiety can cause these types of problems.  I must admit i have been under extreme stress over the last 12 months and i guess that doesnt help.  Another thing that i read was that high blood pressure doesnt help so maybe that could be investigated?

    Retina tears are small rips in the retina.  Basically to correct the problem they use a laser to "melt" the retina which then seals (or fills in) the rips.  i think about 50% of people who have this problem go on to develope a detatched retina which is mega serious if not dealt with urgently.  So im always concious of the symptoms of a detached retina (contiual flashing lights, shadow or cobweb across your vision).
