How long have you had eye floaters? Submit Your Comment

Comment from: Gloria, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: May 06

I have many floaters in my right eye. They are so annoying that I no longer like to read a novel; just so distracting. They seem to be in both eyes unless I close my right eye but, I can't read that way. I'm told that surgery is too dangerous so, there is no help unless gravity takes over. I'm 81 and can't wait for that.
