I’ve always had floaters, can remember ‘watching’ them when I was younger. Had a bout of uveitis in both eyes several years ago and the floaters increased, I had a particularly annoying one in the left eye which has now completely gone (been reabsorbed I imagine along with the other ‘dark’ floaters the uveitis caused) but I still have ‘Lava-Lamp’ floaters in the left eye, the right eye has just the ones I’ve always had. The Lava-Lamp floaters are clear but create a very slight ‘shadow’ from time to time as they move about like the blobs in a lava-lamp. I have to concentrate on them directly in order to see them specifically.
My sight is not really any different, I have an eye test at the optician once a year (because my Mother has glaucoma) and they keep tabs on the floaters that are still present, they’re not getting any worse and have improved a bit - its been around 10 years now thinking about it.
I know I was used to having floaters before the uveitis but I think that even if I hadn’t I would have gotten used to the lava-lamp in my left eye.
