Question

 

 

Hi,

I am 21 years old and recently developed a large wispy strand floater that also looks like a worm in my right eye and was wondering if it could be something more serious then a floater.

I was wondering if it is a PVD ( Posterior Vitreous Detachment) or something like that. I went to a eye doctor and he told me my eyes looked healthy but I don’t understand why I have a big floater in my eye if they are healthy.

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

The most common cause of eye floaters is posterior vitreous detachment which is a benign condition that occurs in healthy eye. Healthy eye means you don't have retinal or vitreous diseases such as retinal detachment, retinal hemorrhage, vitreous inflammation or infection.

It was good that you visited an eye doctor because sometimes retinal tear or hole can cause eye floaters.
