Struggling to cope with vision changes.

I've joined this forum nearly a year ago, to ask questions about what I was dealing with at that time. I found out that I was experiencing blue field entoptic phenomenon and a massive increase in floaters. I went to two different doctors, each said that there was nothing wrong with my eyes, I believe that, but I everywhere I look I (as long as it is bright in enough) I see my white blood cells moving along and floaters everywhere. I know it's normal for everyone to be able to see blue field entoptic phenomenon, but I don't think it's normal for me to be able to see it on everything all of the time. For nearly a year, I've been struggling to find happiness, with almost an anxiety feeling, I've just been living and hoping it will get better, but it hasn't, I don't know why. I look around and nothing feels the same, I want to be able to see the way I used to.

    Could it be a form of visual snow?

      I'm honestly not sure. I've looked into it, and I actually thought I had it for quite some time, but now I'm not so sure, I think it was just caused from me being paranoid, looking for things that were wrong. I don't really have the symptoms people with visual snow have, most notably the "static", I see it a little bit when it's dark, but from my understanding that's normal. I have noticed afterimages, to an extent, but I just think that I've taught to my brain to see these things and now I can't unsee them, if that makes sense. I appreciate your reply.

      I realize that I really don't have of that bad compared to some, it's just hard to deal with.
