Hi everyone. I was wondering whether anyone else is or has ever suffered from similar problems to what I am right now. To give some context here, back in August of last year I started developing a very bad (to me anyway) case of eye floaters, mostly in my left eye, which basically resembled two or three giant eye-lashes or worms floating around bisecting my field of vision in that eye every time I made any sudden movements of that eye. Suffice to say, I was in a panic at first because I didn't know what was going on, so I went to my family doctor, who referred me to an ophthalmologist, who explained what exactly they were, albeit in probably the least reassuring way one can imagine; what he said was basically that it was my problem not his, and I'd just have to live with it.
Anyway, eventually I was referred to a second ophthalmologist who specializes in laser vitreolysis treatments, and ultimately he was able to improve that eye significantly (this was back in December). But unfortunately, it seems the damage to my psyche, for lack of a better term, was already done, as I seem to be hyper-aware of pretty much everything relating to my eyes and vision now. So now I'm constantly seeing blue entoptic phenomenon everywhere, little floaters, my brain keeps telling me that I'm losing my peripheral vision despite the fact that two optometrists have told me otherwise and the fact that when I'm looking straight ahead with moth arms outstretched to either side, both of my hands are still within my visual field.
In short, this whole episode has had a profound impact on my overall quality of life and state of mind. I was just wondering whether anyone else has gone through anything even remotely similar to this and can offer me some advice?
