I’m kind of having a panic attack over a new condition that recently started in my left eye. This eye has a history of cataract surgery (2007), YAG laser (2013), and PP Vitrectomy (2013). I went to see my ophthalmologist about this new issue yesterday but he said everything looks fine & he doesn’t see any floaters in the eye. I’m not even sure if what I’m experiencing is technically a floater or not but basically there’s a fuzzy cloud in my eye that darts around whenever I move my eye. It’s a very disturbing sensation and at times feels like my vision is jittering or twitching whenever I move the eye around. I think the jittering sensation might just be because the cloudy substance moves so quickly that it creates the illusion of moving/vibrating vision but I could be wrong...
Basically when I look forward (staring ahead with no eye movements) I don’t notice any cloud or issue with the eye but whenever I look to the right a cloud appears & darts to the left (opposing the direction of eye movement into my peripheral vision). I will admit this problem has happened before (immediately after YAG laser in 2013) but it went away after 2 days or so. It’s been a long time since my eye behaved like this (and thankfully I know it went away before) so hopefully it’ll go away on its own after some more time. I’m just scared it’ll be permanent this time & the fact the Doctor couldn’t see anything when I was dilated bothers me. Has anyone experienced something similar or have any words of wisdom for a soon father-to-be worried about his future?
