    I always thought that they were from taking too much LSD when younger, you live and learn...

    If people like Rupert Murdoch, Nigel Farage, George Galloway, Nick Griffin and Marine Le Pen want Britain to leave the EU. Where does that put you?

    No they don't get worse, floaters are transparent so you see through them anyway, and if you keep your eyes still they sink to the bottom and you get a clear view.

    I have 3 near the centre of vision in my left eye, almost in a straight line with the horizon.

    They look little floating snakes and are really noticeable when it's sunny. Which isn't a good thing.

    The 1st is nothing to worry about.
    The 2nd is only an issue if the amount of floaters increase over a short space of time. If you've had them years it's just the astigmatism.

    IANACO - but I suffer from astigmatism and have a friend who's retina detached.
    Nonsense. I have floaters and I don't have either of those conditions. My eyesight is a smidge better than 20/20.

    My floaters' visibility varies according to a few factors - what I'm looking at, tiredness etc. They are nothing to worry about. They're simply the shadow caused by junk floating about in your eye. Linked to age but I've had them since my 20's so not sure what "age" they're linked to.

    I've had them since my 20's apparently even if you remove them they return as it is just junk that slowly disintegrates.

    If they wiggle rather than float then you have a problem.
