    Not sure what if anything is going on but perhaps you could make an appointment to see your doctor and have a chat to him/ her about it which should put your mind at rest.

    I do not think the floaters are a lot to worry about as many people experience them.

    Do not get crazy about the symptoms within your eyes that you are getting!

    Halos around bright lights such as street lamps can be a sign of Glaucoma but I remember seeing these halos around the streetlamps when I was a child back in1960's at 5 years old in UK - I do not have these symptoms now but do have a  problem with dry eyes. I just think rather than looking for answers - just go and see your optician or doctor and get appropriate advice.

    I am sure that you will be fine but need to be reassured!

    You are not losing your mind. You need to see an eye doctor as soon as possible.Sorry about the brief e mail laptop about to crash!
