Question

 

 

 

Hi ,

I'm 14 and short sighted and I have a shadow in my peripheral vision and floaters.

Recently went opticians and they said teen eyes start to worsen if your short sighted however the shadow happened recently .

He dilated my eyes and did looked through .This is when he told me that the eyes start to worsen and floaters are common!  

I have eye pain too. Sometimes my eyes flicker.

What is this?

Thanks

Thanks for your question

Nearsightedness usually stabilize after 21 years old and before that it might worsen or might stay the same.

Eye Floaters is common in short sightedness and dilated examination is important. If your dilated eye examination is normal then you shouldn't worry about it.

Shadow in Peripheral Vision might be from the eyeglasses frame
