Hey folks,

I have these amoeba looking things that float around my eye and i found out they are called floaters. They get to be extremely annoying especially when i look at bright white areas such a s a computer screen. It is annoying to the point that I wear shades sometimes when on the computer. Does anyone else have this problem and is there anything that can be done to make them go away or do i need to deal with this for the rest of my life? Also, what caused this to happen? Thanks in advance - Jim

  • I went to go see my doctor this week http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Barry_Levant.html and he said there is absolutely nothing that can be done about floaters. I'll have to deal with it for the rest of my life, sunglasses helps when looking against white backgrounds especially in the dark. It's proteins floating around in my eyes. sucks, just thought i'd let everyone know in case someone else was wondering - Jim

  • Hello. I had this problem also. I know how annoying it can be. My doctor told me the same thing, that there is nothing that you can do about it and they will always just be there. He said sometimes they move. Well I tried a gluten free diet for a while to deal with some other problems I was having. I am not sure if it is related AT ALL, but shortly after starting this diet the floaters disappeared. It was like overnight. One day they were just gone completely. I do eat gluten again now, and the floaters have not come back. May just be a coincidence but at least they are gone for now, and have been gone for about a year.
