Hey everyone. It's been a while. I used to post on here quite often in the summer of 2012 when I started developing floaters. I was 21 at the time, 25 now. Just an update, my floaters have not really improved at all, if they've moved, it's very slight. I've just learned to adapt and cope with them better, even though they're on my mind every day. I trained myself to flick my eyes in a certain way that tends to push all floaters to the top of the vitreous. (I assume, all the debree shoots to the bottom of my vision) then holding my eyes still I have clear vision, for a short period. I'm sure I've put a lot of strain on my eyes over the last 4 years by doing it. I also do all the regular stuff, wear sunglasses on every sunny day, and overcast day (which is somehow worse than a sunny day for me). The main floater is like a large crystal worm, all distorted and messy. I also have halos/static around lights, (car lights, street lights) I'm not sure if this is a separate issue or related, I went to several eye specialists and they did wave length tests on my eyes and tests for disease, cataracts, RD etc, and they found no problems, so god knows why I see all the crap I do.
I'm still considering an FOV, I'm in the UK, a decent option seems like Optegra, they offer Vitrectomy and it's under the treatment of floaters specifically, so I think I could get one quickly as it seems recognized. Anyone had any experience with that, would love to hear from you. As always though, I'm too chicken to go through with it, because of my irrational fear of complications. The post-surgery is what scares me the most. Not being local, I don't know how I could stay close to the hospital for weeks incase something happens, if someone could give me info on how the post-surgery process works and how I could seek immediate help in the event of a problem, I would appreciate it.
Anyway, thanks for reading. I'm still hoping for a cure, the Enzymatic cures I assume have all failed, shame, there was a lot of hope we'd have some sort of substance that could dissolve the Vitreous in the next few years, now 2017 and still no closer.
