I was taking Statin tablets three years ago for slightly raised cholestorol after doctor suggested trying tnem,two weeks in I complained that my vision was blurry and the doctor reduced the dosage but within another week I was seeing a cloudy cobwebby mass going through my line of vision in my left eye.
I was sent to hospital after being told by my doctors to take no more of the statins,the eye department at hospital said I had had a PVD and told me also no more statins.On asking if they had caused the problem they refused to comment either way.The following week I was at my doctors with very sore eyes and was diagnosed with DES as well now.
They told me after examination on that first visit what a PVD was and said the floaters would dissapear by the end of the coming winter,however three years on they have increased causing me another worrying visit to hospital plus another problem cataracts forming in both eyes.After doing lots of research I discovered that the hospital apart from giving out leaflets and advising,water,omega 3,eyedrops,hoping your brain will stop acknowledging the floaters etc etc that its very rare to get rid of them other than biting the bullet and having them lazered or the saline fluid replacement op.
Despondent is the word that sums up my feelings.
