For about 3 weeks I have floaters in both of my eyes which seem to get worse. It is really irritating, it is hard to get used to them and they interfere with the vision to the point that sometimes it is a nightmare to work or go through the day.
I have already scanned the whole of my body in search for possible causes of an infection, being told so by an optholmologist. The examination hasn't given any results.
The problem then is purely with the eyes. Now I take some anti-inflammation drops but they are to no effect.
I have done some research on the internet and I think that it might be PVD. Despite reading so much about it, I still don't get certain things. Can the vitreous detach itself from the retina completely and then the symptomps will vanish? How long do you have to wait for the disappearance of floaters?
Does PVD lead in all cases to retinal tears or retinal detachment or can PVD finish, if it finishes at all, without any of such things happenning?
I worry so much that the symptoms will deteriorate.
Is there anything that can be done to bring some relief or the decrease in the number of floaters?
Last but not least, can I still wear contact lenses, perhaps the symptomps will be less of a nuisance.
Thank you very much for your help.
