I'm 22 years old. I rnemever seeing my first eye floater in 5th grade, ever since then I would avoid going on the computer since that's the only place I really noticed it... over the years I've noticed more, since noticing the new ones I've seen about 5 different eye doctors to try to ease my mind and I've done nothing but spend a bunch of money and still my mind goes crazy when I see them! i now see them on the walls while im at work (I work in a bright area) and I just recently moved into a lake house with my mom that I can't even enjoy because when I go outside these are all I can focus on.
I've had bad anxiety for a long time. I'm now on zoloft which helps with panic attacks but doesn't calm my irrational thoughts. my biggest fear is going blind and I constantly worry about it. I have 20/20 vision last time I checked (3 months ago, went due to a ocular migraine) which you can imagine also freaked me out.
I also don't know if what I see are "flashes of light" that people describe. I wonder if it's some kind of nutritional defeciency instead since when I see them I'm either dizzy at the same time or just feel light headed. regardless, I need to ease my mind SOMEHOW.
it's taking over my life I just want to be happy and live my life!!! now im always looking for new problems in my eyes constantly. help. (((
