Thanks for your Question

Asteroid Hyalosis is typically occur at old age and it occurs in men twice as often as women. But this doesn't mean that it can't occur at young age and in female.

There are certain diseases that can give the same picture such as:

1- Synchysis Scintillans, which is usually bilateral and seen in younger age after severe ocular inflammation, trauma, or hemorrhage. This can be diagnosed by accurate history.

2- amyloidosis and cholesterolosis bulbi. This can be diagnosed by blood test and also by vitreous sample or biopsy.
