Did your eye floater go away? If so, how long did it take? Please share your story.

Never knew vitreous could liquefy. I was watching TV and just noticed a string in the corner of my right eye. I thought it must be tired eyes, went to bed and looked out the window and the string was still there. That was 10 years ago! I"m 50 now. No satisfactory explanation was given. No remedy works though I believe reduction in blood sugar levels coupled with preventing shocks to the head area will go some way in reducing occurrence of these spots. Stay away from high gravity rides at parks as well.

I got hit in the eye by my son's elbow! I saw a bright light and got a lot of tears in my eye. I had my eye checked and have now got the result that I have PVD (posterior vitreous detachment) I will have floaters for the rest of my life! I am 44! I really would be ok with that if there is no danger of anything else. As annoying as they are I am scared it will lead to something worse. I have been checked and thankfully don't have retinal detachment and almost 3 months has passed after the accident.
