    I don't really deal with them. They are severely limiting the quality of my life. I'm more or less hopeless with them. I'm soon hoping to make a simple animation that shows how many floaters I see, with the hope that it would make people understand how debilitating they can be.

    If you have a good surgeon and you're young the risks of a FOV aren't actually that high. Of course, MONEY. but tbh I think it's the best option

    @Sarah Russett, I considered that option even before I got tinnitus (got floaters first — although my floaters have become worse since then), but I also have severe pathological myopia and I've read that it considerably increases the risks of FOV. What's your opinion on that?

    However, FOV is something I'm still frequently thinking about. And doing it one eye at a time would ensure that if something goes wrong, the other eye remains functional...

    Hmm. It's definitely a tricky situation. I guess I don't really know what is considered severe myopia. I would have to research what exactly you would be more susceptible to. I suppose it's a matter of how much is too much for you to handle? :( I wish there were better options. It's just not good enough :(((

    Yes that's true. One at a time. Yeah, I don't want to trivialize the idea of a FOV, because no matter how safe it is, it's still daunting you know? I was just wondering what your thoughts were currently on it.

    90% of floaters are in my one eye

    Vitreous liquefying and collagen fibers clumping together or pieces of gel breaking off. They say it's usually caused by aging or myopia putting stress on vitreous gel, but I know plenty of people w/ 20/20 so I suspect unlucky "weak vitreous" genetics is more the case. Not nearly enough research being done.

    I just saw a Retina specialist. I have a 'floater' that hasn't broken apart yet. It is obstructing my vision in one eye. @Markku you are absolutely right - no one can truly appreciate how life changing they can be.

    Yet? Floaters don't really break apart. If it's obstructing your vision you might be YAG laser candidate to break into smaller pieces, but idk the success rate

    The doctor said it would break up and become friends with all the other floaters in my eye. Maybe that's why he wants to see me again. :-(
