Hello. I have multiple attacks of health anxiety throughout the years and most of the time, it's nothing.
I have dark eye floaters ever since I was 16, I have been living with it for 8 years now. None of them are big. Whenever I go to the optometrist, I always ask them about eye floaters, and they ask if there is more than 20, I say no. I would say about 9. They ask if they are larger than a coin, no. And they ask if they suddenly appear, I have them for years, so my answer is no. Optometrists tell me that there is nothing to worry about after that.
I didn't like using Google to check what it is.. because it worsens my anxiety. I accidentally googled on something because of work today and eye floaters came up. Google talks about the symptoms of the big 'C' [that everyone is afraid of] and one of them is having eye floaters. I'm scared now, my hands are cold and trembling. Google also talked about some symptoms may not show. I'm really scared. And mentioned that these floaters normally settle into bottom of sight, but mine do not and they appear in my vision and distract me but would fall and move below my line of sight. I am fine living with them... Please just don't worsen.. I want to continue to see the beautiful world.
Please help me. Please share your experience with me if you have any dark eye floaters. I'm afraid to continue reading on the symptoms Google has listed... If you could read them for me and.... Or if you know something about the eye... It can't be.. right? It would have already happened.... I have them for years.. Just please..
