Did you perform any surgery for the eyes?
Do you suffer from pre-existing illnesses in the eye?
Do you suffer from any diseases in the body?
Do you use any eye drops?
Do you use any eye drops?




Good morning,

I want to consult about an eye issue. For 2 months I see in my right eye as if it were a "white cloth" that goes down and cover the entire right eye and at that moment the vision becomes blurred and I see more white and blur in that eye.

After about 5-10 seconds that white cloth as it rises and the vision becomes clear again but after a minute or less the same situation is repeated and I see it again only because of that eye, and then it comes back to uncover that white cloth and after a while it covers again and this is repeated throughout the day and for 2 months.

Looking at it from the outside, do not see any white cloth, but in the vision if you notice it and make it look like that, with or without glasses.



At the beginning it was less annoying because it was only covered from time to time but now it is almost always covered only that eye.

I have gone to 3 ophthalmologists and with eye fundus examination they said that they did not find anything strange and that the retina was fine, they also said that there were no signs of cataract.

I would like to know what I have and how to treat it.

Waiting and thanking your response




Thanks for your Question



This white cloth that comes over and over infront of your vision can be caused by two things

the first thing is dry eye. Dry cornea can caused recurrent blurred of vision which some people describe it as white cloth or veil infront of my eye. You should use preservative free lubricant eye drops

The second thing is eye floaters which is a benign and natural changes in the vitreous that can be manifested as mist or veil hat obscures part of your vision and these floaters are moved with your eye movement. They cause no complications or permanent vision loss. They can be treated with Laser Vitreolysis.
