Hey all,

First off, thanks for reading this and (hopefully!) responding. I'm 19 years old. I've had floaters for the past year or so, but was under the impression that there's not really any reason to explore the issue. If I'm wrong about this, then please let me know. But also (and I'm not sure if this is connected to the floaters or not), but I just got a landscaping job this summer and have noticed that whenever I work the mower or weed-eater for more than 20 minutes or so I experience these weird visual effects. It might be common, but I don't know the name for it. The best way I can describe it is it's as if there's an invisible drain at wherever my focal point is, and everything seems to be drifting into it and then out of it. Like everything around my focal point is shrinking a bit and then immediately returning to normal and then shrinking again. I can't shake it off and it lasts for about 10 to 15 minutes after finishing whatever activity I'm doing. I just honestly don't know if this is a symptom or if it's a very common thing, but I just wanted to check. Thank you for your time!
