Opticians opinion on eye floaters?
« on: December 08, 2013, 01:14:34 PM »
I have an opticians appointment Tuesday at 4. It's not because I'm worried about the eye floaters and camera flash I get in my vision because my vision seems to be perfect and my floaters or flashes haven't changed for years well since I had them but I've never been to the opticians about them and today my mum took us to visual express and made my sister an appointment since she needs glasses and I just said I may as well have one too. Has anyone else ever been to the opticians about floaters/flashes/visual snow and if so what did the optician say?
I'm 14 by the way thank you

Yesss. No doctor was ever concerned. My eyes are okay. And I first noticed floaters when I was your age (I'm 38 now).

Aww very sorry  !  I've been really busy last night.

Okay so me and my 11 year old sister went to the opticians, I have eye floaters and she couldn't see the board at school, my sister got diagnosed with myopia (short sighted) and she had some strange marks on her retina which seemed to have been there since she was a fetus and were never picked up. She now has glasses.
On the other hand I was perfectly fine. So that's good :)
I'm hoping this will bring hope to people with floaters who are scared of opticians, it really wasn't bad at all!

Glad about that :)
I guess those marks on your sister's retina didn't really concern the doctor, right?

Thanks

I don't think so but I was in the test room at the time. He said he thought they were okay but he's told her to come back in 6 months I'm not sure what they are, they're not tears or anything
