Hello, I’m new to the site and I have a query. My PVD started about 2 weeks ago with flashes in my Peripheral vision. This was followed by a sense of more floaters. I went to my Eye A&E: a Doctor carried out a full exam. Good news is that there are no tears ‘tobacco powdering’ etc but could see the vitruous was starting to shift.
Over the last week I’ve come to realise that the floaters aren’t so much new - they seem to have shifted position. I’ve had floaters for years and in particular - I’ve had what seems like a film or sheet of floaters consisting of lots of small light grey circles. This always ‘floated’ somewhere in the top right of my vision and rarely troubled me. This now seems to have shifted down in to my central vision which is now highly distracting especially in the sun.
I wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience? I’m hoping that as the vitreous shrinks, the floater moves past central vision and settles.
Also, I find that, sometimes, the flashes seem to happen in response to when I am focusing on reading.
Any advice would be appreciated.
