Seeing fast moving spots for 10 seconds or so
« on: November 26, 2013, 08:30:53 AM »
Hello. I was wondering if someone could help me. This happened twice within three weeks.
I will see about 15 or so small dots going in sort of a circular pattern. It looks like a bunch of bugs flying around you. The first time I saw them was in Fluorescent light and it looked like the dots were flashing. The second time they just looked dark. A little over a year ago I had a MRI. I was at the eye doctor a few months ago. So I don't think there is anything wrong.
I do sit at a computer all day and I had to start back on celexa recently as my anxiety has really flared up. Can anybody help please. Thank you.

Hi Hectar,

It is definitely your computer. Smart phones/LED backlights really mess with your vision. My boyfriend had 20/20 vision until he got a new job a year ago on a computer and now he has to wear glasses. I see spots/floaters/flashes all the time and I went to the eye doctor last month, had a full exam, everything was normal. Computer + Anxiety= Vision problems

Thanks for commenting and the reassurance. I believe you are correct. I started wearing my glasses again so hopefully that will help! Thanks again.

Hectar, if you are sitting at your computer for long hours during your day, find time to walk away, and focus on something else to give your eyes a rest.....maybe even keep a washcloth at work to wet and wipe your eyes when you get up from the computer.  Small things like this may be all you need to help the situation.

The wash cloth (with some cold water) is a good idea. You will experience the spots can get more intense when you get really tired.
