I figured my ophthalmologist would think I was nuts when I said that at 36, I was seeing hazy white tree branches floating across my field of vision. Instead he explained that it was a form of dry eye where the lipids (fats) break down and separate in the tear layer too quickly after you blink. What I was seeing in that pattern was the lipids actually clumping and separating. Nifty. So I have non-Rx eye drops which I'll probably have to use forever to some extent, no problem, other than this seems to be affecting my vision. Truth be told, it's hard to see through the haze although the drops help, and with that I have two questions.
1) Has anyone else had this particualr issue and if so, what sort of eye drops (Rx or non Rx) provided relief?
2) Is this lipid breakdown by any chance an indicator of any other lipid/fatty breakdowns in the body. Sometimes things are seen concurrently so I figure it's a good time to check in on everyone's experience and knowledge.
Thanks, be well.
